PostSubject: Aperture Portfolio Prize, an international photography competition!   Tue May 18, 2010 12:02 pm

Welcome to the Aperture Portfolio Prize,
an international photography competition!

The purpose of the Aperture Portfolio Prize is to identify trends in contemporary photography and specific artists whom we can help by bringing them to a wider audience. In choosing the first-prize winner and runners-up, we are looking for work that is fresh and that hasn’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues.

First prize is $5,000. The first-prize winner and runners-up are featured in Aperture’s website for approximately one year. Winners are also announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches thousands of subscribers in the photography community.

The entry period for the 2010 Aperture Portfolio Prize begins Friday, May 14, 2010, and the deadline is Wednesday, July 14, 2010, at 12:00 noon EST. All entrants will be contacted with final results by November 1, 2010. For more information, see the Guidelines and FAQs pages.


Aperture Portfolio Prize Submission Guidelines --

Aperture Foundation is pleased to announce the 2010 Aperture Portfolio Prize, an international photography competition.

Please note that due to the high volume of requests, it is not possible for Aperture’s editors to review unsolicited material outside of the Aperture Portfolio Prize competition. Thank you for your understanding.
Deadline and Timeframe:
> The entry period for the 2010 Aperture Portfolio Prize begins Friday, May 14, 2010.
> The deadline for the 2010 Aperture Portfolio Prize is Wednesday, July 14, 2010, at 12:00 noon EST.
> All entrants will be contacted with final results by November 1, 2010.
> No exceptions will be made for late submissions. Please allow for ample time to complete your entry.

Entry Requirements:
> Entrants must be current, paid subscribers of Aperture magazine. Subscriptions must run through at least the Fall 2010 issue, #200.
> $25 entry fee, payable during the online entry process

How to Enter:
> To enter, go to www.callforentry.org, where, as of May 14, 2010, you will find a link to the Aperture Portfolio Prize competition along with step-by-step instructions on how to register. This user-friendly process was developed specifically for artists by the Western States Arts Federation. (A side benefit for entrants is the ability to submit work to other competitions around the country with minimal effort.)
Once you are registered, you will be asked to provide the following:
> 15 images with title/caption information
(if you do not have fifteen images, insert duplicate images)
> Resume/CV
> Statement of up to 250 words about your work. (Please include any relevant technical information, e.g., the original format and size.)
> Your Aperture magazine account number. (For help in locating the number or to subscribe at a discounted rate, see the FAQ page.)
> $25 entry fee, payable during the online entry process
> Artists may submit up to two separate portfolios of 15 images each. A separate Café profile and application is required for each entry. The $25 entry fee must be paid for each submission, though the same Aperture magazine account number can be used for both portfolios. Registration content is not transferable from one account to another.

Competition Criteria:
When examining competition entries, Aperture’s editors and curatorial staff will consider the following criteria:
> Is the work new, e.g., created in the last five years?
> Is a theme or topic carried throughout the portfolio (of up to 15 images) in a consistent manner?
> Are the individual images strong compositionally and in their use
of color or tone?
> What technical and presentation choices has the photographer made, and are they appropriate for the work? For example, is there a clear reason for using sepia-toned black and white versus a digitally enhanced palette?
> Does the body of work take an innovative or unique approach
to the subject matter?

Prizes:
> First prize is $5,000. The first-prize winner and runners-up will be featured on Aperture’s website (for approximately a year). Winners also will be announced in Aperture’s e-newsletter.

Important Notes:
> Aperture reserves the right to reject entries that are not submitted properly.
> Submissions should come directly from artists, not from
galleries or representatives.
> Again, no exceptions will be made for late submissions. Please allow for ample time to complete your entry.
