“In July 2015, Aperture Foundation will host its second open-submission exhibition for which all photographers are eligible. The theme for this year’s Summer Open is Black Mirror, and it will be curated by Michael Famighetti, editor of Aperture magazine.
Do we live in a world wilder than science fiction? The 2015 Aperture Summer Open borrows its title from the British television series Black Mirror, which imagines a dystopian near-future—a Twilight Zone for the age of the smartphone. The name Black Mirror refers to the omnipresent screens through which our lives are mediated today, and the show depicts a society in which technology ominously defines and shapes our relationships and each facet of daily life.
We’re more than thirty years beyond Orwell’s imagined 1984, and yet we continue to live in a moment of anxiety about what the future holds. Aperture’s Summer Open asks contributors to consider the future and the idea that we inhabit a world that is stranger, and in some ways more frightening, than that predicted by the authors of science fiction. What does it mean when our current reality echoes what were once outlandish fictional narratives? As today becomes tomorrow, what might the future look like in photographs? We seek a wide range of submissions, representing diverse subjects and approaches to photography, that are in some way engaged with questions about what the world has become and is becoming.”

“We know how hard it is to be a photographer today and that every break counts. That’s why we are again putting together 150 photographers and 75 of the most influential editors, curators, gallerists and book publishers for two days of private photo critiques on April 11 and 12.
And … wait for it … it’s free.
Applications are now open for the Third 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. This will be an opportunity for people in the photographic community to meet, trade ideas, help each other — and have fun.
Saturday, April 11 will be for all photographers 21 and older, each of whom will receive six private critiques. Sunday, April 12 will be solely for photographers 18 to 27 and will consist of four private critiques for each participant, as well as talks by Santiago Lyon, director of photography for The Associated Press, on building an editorial portfolio, and by the photographer Phil Toledano on the creative process, as well as a panel on working with galleries. You can find a list of this year’s reviewers at the bottom of this page.
We will screen all applicants and choose 100 participants for Saturday and 60 for Sunday. All kinds of photographic work — from fine art to photojournalism — are encouraged.
Please note: Photographers who attended last year’s review will not be eligible to apply this year. Photographers who attended two years ago can apply for this year’s review, but they must submit new work and expectations will be higher.
To enter, send us no more than 20 photos total, from one or two projects, using the form here. The files should be jpegs, 1200 pixels across and 72 D.P.I. The deadline is Feb. 11 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. We will inform those who are accepted by March 4, 2015.”

“The purpose of the Aperture Portfolio Prize is to identify trends in contemporary photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition.

Portfolio Prize – Guidelines
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.
