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. Previous winners and runners-up include Michal Chelbin, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Alexander Gronsky, Sarah Palmer, Bryan Schutmaat, and Jordan Tate, among others.
Entry Fee: $75 entry fee
Artists may submit up to two separate portfolios of 15 images each. A separate Café profile and application is required for each entry. A $25 entry fee must be paid for a second entry, though the same Aperture Foundation Membership can be used for both submissions.
Prizes: First prize is $3,000 and an exhibition at Aperture Gallery. The first-prize winner and up to five runners-up will be featured on Aperture’s website, where their images will be accompanied by a brief statement written by Aperture staff. All winners are announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches forty thousand subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community. Winners will also have the opportunity to offer their prints via the Aperture Foundation limited-edition print program.
