    Created in 1952 by photographers and writers as common ground for the advancement of photography, Aperture today is a multi-platform publisher and centre that 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.

    Part of their activities is the annual Aperture Portfolio Prize, which aim 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.

    Photographers may submit between six and twelve photographs (no smaller than 1920 pixels on the longest side), and you can enter as part of a team or collective (providing at least one member of the duo or collective is a current Aperture Member).

    There is no entry fee.


    Open worldwide to Aperture Foundation Members only. For more details regarding membership please visit [link].


    First prize is 3,000 USD and an exhibition at Aperture Gallery. The first-prize winner and up to five runners-up will be featured on Aperture's website, accompanied by a brief statement written by Aperture staff.

    All winners are announced in the foundation's e-newsletter, which reaches fifty thousand subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community. Winners will also have the opportunity to participate in the Aperture Foundation limited-edition print program.
