Call for Entries: Aperture Portfolio Prize
Artists are invited to enter the Aperture Portfolio Prize 2013 contest, an international photography competition.
Through the Aperture Portfolio Prize, we aim to identify trends in contemporary photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition. When choosing the first-prize winner and runners-up, our editorial and curatorial staff look for innovative bodies of work that haven’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues. The first-prize winner receives $3,000 and has his or her work exhibited at Aperture Gallery. The winner and up to five runners-up are featured on Aperture’s website, accompanied by a brief statement written by Aperture’s staff. Previous winners and runners-up include Sarah Palmer, Thibault Brunet, David Favrod, Alexander Gronsky, and Andrew McConnell.
Entries for the 2013 Aperture Portfolio Prize can be submitted from Monday, January 7, through Thursday, February 28, at 12:00 noon EDT, at callforentry.org. The winners and runners-up will be announced in July. For specific details, see the Guidelines and FAQs pages.
Please stay tuned for more details about our other competition, the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation Book Prize, to be announced in April 2013.
