Only print subscribers to Aperture Magazine are eligible to win the Aperture Portfolio Prize.

The first-place winner will be featured in Aperture magazine, receive a $1,000 gift card to to purchase gear, and attend a New York exhibition. Each of the four finalists and the winner will be featured on and shared on Aperture's social media platforms. In Aperture's e-newsletter, which reaches subscribers worldwide, including photographers, critics, and curators, all finalists are announced. The Aperture limited-edition print program may also be available to the winner and shortlist.

A virtual portfolio review session with an Aperture editor will also be provided to all twenty-five finalists, which includes the winner, four runners-up, and twenty finalists. Artists will be able to receive thoughtful and constructive feedback on their work during these one-on-one sessions.
