For the first-ever LensCulture Art Photography Awards, we want to discover and highlight the diverse and creative ways in which photographers are pushing the medium and reinventing our definitions of art made with 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. We hope you will help us define what thought-provoking art photography can be in 2018!

We’re happy to announce that all selected photographers will be exhibited at Aperture Gallery in New York City’s Chelsea district. An opening reception will be held for artists, invited media, photo editors, and industry insiders for a night of art appreciation and networking. In recent years, Aperture Gallery has hosted exhibitions of work by Alex Webb, Martin Parr, Paul Strand, Mary Ellen Mark, Mickalene Thomas, Richard Renaldi, and many others.
