LensCulture Emerging Talent Award

Open calls | 19 May 2014 - 22 June 2014

LensCulture’s Emerging Talent Awards 2014 is an international competition to showcase outstanding emerging photographers — from all cultures, all points of view, with no age limit.

LensCulture's aim is to discover and share the best of contemporary photography. New and emerging photographers often make the freshest, most exciting work — but it’s hard to gain attention when you are relatively new and not widely known. That’s where LensCulture aim to make a big difference. LensCulture reaches an audience of more than 500,000 — and with these awards, they want to highlight many emerging talents who deserve worldwide attention.

The competition is open to all genres of photography. All points of view. All corners of the world. If you are a photographer beginning to seek global recognition, Apply.

Emerging photographers, regardless of their age, are encouraged to enter. We consider an “emerging” photographer as anyone who has not yet received significant international recognition. Currently enrolled students or 2014 graduates can enter the competition with a $20 discount on entry fees. There is not a separate student category, just a discounted fee for students. All entries are treated equally. Please see the FAQ for more details.

Please submit up to 10 photographs that work well together as a series — either as a visual narrative, or images that work well together in theme or style. Edit your selections carefully: winners will be judged on the strength of their submissions as unified groups of photos, not as individual photographs.

Deadline 22 June 2014
