Eligibility:

Not for profit:

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 finalists, Aperture’s editorial staff looks 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, a $1,000 gift card to shop for gear at mpb.com, and an exhibition organized by Aperture in New York City.
Prizes Details: 

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

  • Was the work 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.
