First Annual Aperture Prize Photo Competition Launches

Aperture Prize

The Aperture Foundation has launched the first Aperture Prize international photography competition, replacing the foundation’s biannual portfolio review. The Aperture Prize contest will take place every summer, and will be judged by Aperture’s top editorial and curatorial staff.

Aperture is a not-for-profit arts institution with a mission to advance fine photography. It was founded in 1952 by, among others, photographers Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange.

The Aperture Prize will award $2,500 to the first prize winner who will be featured, together with the 3 runners-up, on Aperture’s Web site for about one year and in a special publication to be packaged with an issue of Aperture magazine.

There’s a $25 entry fee to join the contest and participants must first be subscribers of Aperture magazine. Deadline for entries is July 13, 2007.
