We want to discover the diverse and creative ways photographers are pushing the medium and reinventing our definitions of art photography.
The possibilities are boundless—our mission is to celebrate all the techniques, methods, and stylistic approaches being used by artists from all over the world. For these new Awards, we’re happy to partner with The Aperture Foundation, and we’re excited to announce that selected work from the winners, jurors’ picks, and finalists will be exhibited at the world-renowned Aperture Gallery in New York City next spring!
What does art photography mean to you? Why does it remain important and relevant? How can it trigger appreciation of beauty, or a new way of viewing the world? We’re open to considering all types of photographic art—everything from printed art on gallery walls to sculptural objects, experimental processes, and totally new forms and formats.

By altering the original state of his family photographs, Antonio Pulgarin creates dynamic collages that act as the visual representation of his lifelong tension with machismo in Latin American culture.
Edgar Martins uses the social context of incarceration to explore ideas of presence, absence, and loss—as well as photography’s ability to represent a subject that is missing from the frame.
