Portfolio Prize


Welcome to the Aperture Portfolio Prize, an international photography competition.

The call for entries for the 2015 Portfolio Prize is now closed. Stay tuned! We will announce the finalists in early March.

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.

The Portfolio Prize is open to Aperture Foundation Members, who also enjoy invitations to special events, exclusive discounts on Aperture publications, and opportunities to meet and engage with artists and leaders in the photo community.
