In this seminar, Swanson will demystify new markets within today’s diverse photography marketplace and assess the role photography plays within them. She will discuss how to identify new buyers of images and the most effective approaches when introducing oneself and considerations for which artists must be mindful when taking their artwork across multiple markets.

Call for Submissions: Fourth Annual New York Portfolio Reviews
Deadline: Thursday, February 4, 2016 at 11:59 PM EDT
Submission Fee: NONE
“Applications are now open for the Fourth Annual New York Portfolio Review, sponsored by the New York Times Lens blog and the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism. And it’s free — because we think that it should be the quality of the work that matters, not how much money you have.
This will be an opportunity for people in the photographic community to meet, trade ideas, help each other — and have fun.
Saturday, April 2, will be for all photographers 21 and older. Each participant will receive six private critiques. Sunday, April 3, will be solely for photographers 18 to 27 and will consist of at least four private critiques for each participant, as well as workshops on how to best present, promote and publish your photographs. We will screen all applicants and choose 100 participants for Saturday and 50 for Sunday. All kinds of photographic work — from fine art to photojournalism — are encouraged.
To enter, submit no more than 20 photos total, from one or two projects. The files should be jpegs, 1200 pixels across and 72 D.P.I. We will inform those who are accepted by March 1st.
Please note: Photographers who attended last year’s review are not eligible to apply this year. Photographers who attended two or three years ago can apply for this year’s review, but they must submit new work and expectations will be higher.”

“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 Portfolio Prize is open to Aperture Foundation Members, who also enjoy invitations to special events, exclusive discounts on Aperture publications, and opportunities to meet and engage with artists and leaders in the photo community.
First prize is $3,000 and an exhibition at Aperture Gallery. The first-prize winner and up to five runners-up will be featured on Aperture’s website, accompanied by a brief statement written by Aperture staff. All winners 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. Winners will also have the opportunity to participate in the Aperture Foundation limited-edition print program.
When examining competition entries, Aperture’s editors and curatorial staff will consider the following criteria:
- Is the work new, i.e., created in the last five years?
- Is a theme or topic carried throughout the portfolio in a consistent manner?
- Do the individual images have strong composition and strong 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?”
