The Aperture Portfolio Prize aims to identify trends in contemporary photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition. When choosing the first prize winner and runners up, Aperture's editorial staff look for innovative bodies of work that haven't been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues. The Aperture Portfolio Prize is open exclusively to Aperture magazine print subscribers. 

Prize Summary: 
The first prize winner will be published in Aperture magazine and will receive a $3,000 cash prize, $1,000 gift card to shop for gear at mpb.com, and an exhibition in New York.
Prizes Details: 

The first prize winner will be published in Aperture magazine and will receive a $3,000 cash prize, $1,000 gift card to shop for gear at mpb.com, and an exhibition in New York. The winner and shortlisted artists will each have their own feature on aperture.org and will be featured across Aperture's social media channels. All finalists are announced in the foundation's e-newsletter, which reaches subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community. The winner and shortlist may also be presented the opportunity to participate in the Aperture Foundation limited edition print program.

In addition, twenty-five total finalists (comprised of the winner, 4 shortlisted artists, and 20 runner-ups) will receive a virtual portfolio review session with an Aperture Editor. These one-on-one sessions will offer artists the opportunity to receive thoughtful and constructive feedback on their work.

When examining entries, Aperture's editors and curatorial staff will consider the following criteria:

  • Is the work new, i.e., created in the past five years?
  • Is a theme or topic carried throughout the portfolio in a fully resolved, consistent manner?
  • Are each of the images individually strong?
  • What technical and presentation choices has the photographer made, and are they appropriate - for the work? For example, is there a clear reason for the work being in black and white versus a digitally enhanced palette?
  • Does the body of work take an innovative or unique approach to the subject matter?

Entries are welcome from anyone who makes photographs. This program is inclusive, and work will not be chosen on the basis of the status of the photographer. It is the portfolio that counts.

Photography A Sense of Place

Online Exhibition

March 1, 2021 – March 29, 2021

 

“A photograph is a result of the photographers decision that it is worth recording that particular event or this particular object has been seen” — John Berger

 

How does a photographer frame a scene? Inevitably, it is an act of choosing: what goes in, what goes out? Covid-19 has radically reconfigured our spatial coordinates, and introduced new frames. Places that were once occupied are left vacant while others, such as homes and parks have taken on a greater importance.

She spent several years at PDN as the editor of its magazines for aspiring photographers, PDNedu and Emerging Photographer.

About the Gallery:
Site:Brooklyn Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting the current practice of contemporary artists.

We are taking Site:Brooklyn online and on the road, with a new series of interactive exhibitions. Our goal remains the same, to connect artists with an expert and diverse set of jurors through the open call format. Our new program focuses on online open call exhibitions, selected by a cast of new jurors, solo artist features, and spotlights. As safety and regulations permit, we aim to host a number of exhibitions around the country.

Fragmented Call for Submissions

Category:

Eligibility:

Fragmented art, whether it be collages, abstracts, splintered art, or fractured art allows the viewer to see what the artist sees, in pieces woven together in a mosaic to narrate a story or a perception. It’s an abstract way of thinking, breaking down perspective into finite relative pieces. It makes no sense at first, and yet, it makes the ultimate sense. In this international art call we are asking for the artist’s interpretation of fragmented art.

DEADLINE FOR THIS OPEN ART CALL: JANUARY 7, 2019

Art calls are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, ceramics, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc.

Cost: $35 for 3 entries, $5 for additional entries.

Animalistic Call for Entries

Animals. They are our innocents, our beasts, our wild. They are caged, they are hunted, they are tamed, they are dissected, and they are forgiving. In this call for artists, we ask artists to depict the beauty and majesty of our wild beings, animals.

DEADLINE FOR THIS CALL FOR ARTISTS: January 28, 2019

Art calls are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, ceramics, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc.

Blur Art Call

Category:

Eligibility:

Movement in visual art is actually very hard to depict. Motion is not something given to the flat medium. However, when we are able to represent motion it tends to blur or flutter. Our human brains can interpret it in a visceral way, sweetly. In this art call please create motion, blur, or gesture to show the challenge of movement.

Art calls are open to all local, domestic, national and international professional and amateur artists. All art mediums will be considered in this call for submissions, from photography, wall sculpture, ceramics, fabric, mixed media, all paintings and drawings including, oil, acrylic, pastels, ink, graphite, etc.

Cost: $35 for 3 entries, $5 for additional entries.
