About Aperture Portfolio Prize
“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 will be published in Aperture magazine and will receive a $3,000 cash prize and exhibition in New York. The winner and up to four runners up will be featured in an online gallery on aperture.org. All finalists are announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches fifty thousand subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community. The winner and runners up may also be presented the opportunity to participate in the Aperture Foundation limited edition print program.

Juror information
The Aperture Portfolio Prize jury is comprised of Aperture’s experienced editors and curatorial staff. This year, the jury includes Chris Boot, executive director; Annette Booth, director of exhibitions management; Charlotte Chudy, editorial assistant of books; Brendan Embser, managing editor of Aperture magazine; Michael Famighetti, editor of Aperture magazine; Annika Klein, assistant editor of Aperture magazine; Taia Kwinter, managing editor of the book program; Amelia Lang, associate publisher of the book program; Samantha Marlow, associate editor of books; Lesley A.
