Deadline March 9th: LensCulture Portrait Awards 2014

Call for Entries: Portrait Awards 2014
Deadline: Sunday, March 9, 2014, 11:59 pm PST

“Photographic portraits are part of everyday life in almost all parts of the world. From fine art to spontaneous selfies, from hyper-perfect photoshopped portraits to seductive (and often fictitious) social media profile pics, to mobile phone snaps altered with digital nostalgia filters. Some are candid, some are staged, some are outrageous and silly, others are just plain beautiful.

We at LensCulture are on a mission to discover a full range of great 21st century photo portraits. We are open to everything. All points of view. All levels of expertise. All corners of the world. All ideas of portraiture.
