Submit to Aperture

Aperture seeks to support and promote both emerging and established photographers and photobook makers, by acknowledging innovative work that contributes to a larger dialogue surrounding photography. Each year Aperture Foundation hosts three calls for entry: the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards, the Portfolio Prize, and the Summer Open exhibition. Submitting your work to these opportunities gives you the chance to have it seen by Aperture, other editors and curators, and, if selected, the broader photo community.
