How I can set up my free digital edition, complimentary with my print subscription?

We must have your e-mail address to send you the digital edition, which is served by Zinio.
For new subscribers, if you provided your e-mail address when you placed your order, approximately 10 days after you pay for your subscription you will receive an e-mail from Zinio that your digital edition has been delivered. To access the Zinio edition, you will need to create an account on (if you don’t already have one) using the e-mail address where you received the notice.

The first-prize winner will be published in Aperture magazine and will receive a $3,000 cash prize along with an exhibition curated by Aperture in New York. More information can be found here.

Can I start my subscription with a back issue?

Where can I find back issues?

A wide selection of back issues are available for purchase here.

What is my account number?

If you are a current print subscriber, check the address label affixed to the outside of a recent issue or request your account number by sending an e-mail with your name and address to [email protected]

If you are a new subscriber, your account number will be included in your confirmation e-mail, which you should receive approximately 30 minutes after your order is submitted.


I still have issues left with my current subscription, so why am I receiving renewal notices?

Renewal notices are sent out well before your subscription expires. This is to ensure you have ample time to renew and do not miss an issue. If you have already renewed but are still receiving notices, please keep in mind that it can take up to two weeks for us to receive and process your payment.  If it has been less than two weeks since you sent your payment, please disregard any notices that you receive, as our letters may have crossed in the mail.  If it has been more than two weeks since you remitted payment, please contact us by e-mail, phone, or mail.

What is Automatic Renewal?

Aperture offers no-risk Automatic Renewal to all subscribers. If you opt-in, we won’t bother you with renewal notices when your subscription is about to expire. Instead, your magazine subscription will be automatically renewed unless you tell us to stop. You will receive a clearly marked reminder highlighting the renewal rate then in effect approximately 30 days before your credit card is charged or a bill is sent. If you do nothing, your credit card will be charged or you will receive an invoice for another subscription year. You may sign up or cancel this feature by calling 866.457.4603 or emailing [email protected] at any time during your subscription term.

How do I send a letter to the editors?

You can contact the editors by e-mail. Please do not send any unsolicited artwork, photographs, book maquettes, or manuscripts, as we cannot assume responsibility for their return.
