2020 Aperture Portfolio Prize

Share

Eligibility:

The Aperture Portfolio Prize is an annual international competition to discover, exhibit, and publish new talents in photography.

About Aperture Portfolio Prize

The purpose of the Aperture Portfolio Prize is 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 and curatorial staff look for innovative bodies of work that haven’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues.

About Aperture

Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation, connects the photo community and its audiences with the most inspiring work, the sharpest ideas, and with each other – in print, in person, and online.

Created in 1952 by photographers and writers as “common ground for the advancement of photography,” Aperture today is a multiplatform publisher and center for the photo community. From our base in New York, we produce, publish, and present a program of photography projects, locally and internationally.

Competition Criteria

Aperture’s editorial and curatorial staff will consider a variety of the following criteria: is the work new (created in the past five years), is a theme/topic carried throughout the portfolio in a fully resolved manner, and are each of the images individually strong?

Deadline January 22, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. EST

What Winners Receive

The first prize winner will be published in Aperture magazine and will receive a $3,000 cash prize and exhibition in New York. The winner and up to four runners up will be featured in an online gallery on aperture.org. All finalists are announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches ninety thousand subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community. The winner and runners up may also be presented the opportunity to participate in the Aperture Foundation limited edition print program.
