This year, Aperture’s editorial and limited-edition print staff—twelve staff members and eleven work scholars in all—reviewed close to one thousand Portfolio Prize entries. Our challenge was to select one top prize and four runners-up from this overwhelming response.
We are pleased to announce that Amy Elkins is the winner of this year’s Portfolio Prize. Runners-up are Matt Eich, Davide Monteleone, Max Pinckers, and Sadie Wechsler. The portfolios of all five finalists are presented here.
