APERTURE PRIZE: Closing Deadline Soon! JULY 7

From the competition website:


The purpose of the Portfolio Prize is to identify trends in contemporary photography and specific artists whom we can help by bringing their work to a wider audience. In choosing the first-prize winner and runners-up, we are looking for work that is fresh and that hasn’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues.

First prize is $2,500. The first-prize winner and runners-up are featured on Aperture’s website for approximately one year. Winners are also announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches thousands of subscribers in the photography community. To see the work of the winner and runners-up for the 2007 prize, please click here.

The entry period for the 2008 Aperture Portfolio Prize is Thursday, May 1, through Friday, July 11. For specifics on how to enter, see the Guidelines and FAQs pages. Good luck!

Please note: Due to the high volume of requests, it is not possible for Aperture’s editors to review unsolicited material outside of the Portfolio Prize competition. Thank you for your understanding.
