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 first-prize winner receives $3,000 and has his or her work exhibited at Aperture. The winner and up to five runners-up are featured on Aperture’s website, accompanied by a brief statement written by Aperture’s staff. All winners are announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches forty thousand subscribers, including writers, critics, and other members of Aperture’s global community. The winners also have the opportunity to offer their prints for sale to Aperture’s collectors and patrons through our limited-edition print program.
Entries for the 2013 Aperture Portfolio Prize can be submitted from Monday, January 7, through Thursday, February 28, at 12:00 noon EDT, at callforentry.org. The winners and runners-up will be announced in July. For specific details, see the Guidelines and FAQs pages.

It certainly pays to think outside the square (or rectangle)….

What do you think of the new US Olympics team portraits?

I wonder what went wrong here… Was it the wrong photographers for the brief, lack of budget/ production value or just plain old bad photography?

On such a high profile job with worldwide reach its such a shame that the photographer wasn’t able to push the creative to achieve something memorable (memorable - in a good way). Opportunity lost.
