LensCulture Emerging Talent Awards 2023

LensCulture is seeking for the world’s top 25 emerging photographers for 2023 through their Emerging Talent Awards.

Since their beginnings, LensCulture’ve been searching the globe for early-career photographers who demonstrate great promise and a distinct creative vision; artists and storytellers who are ready to step into the spotlight and those who could be future leaders in our industry.

Winning photographers will be exhibited at a gallery in New York during The Photography Show, the premier international photo fair that brings together hundreds of galleries, publishers and collectors, as well as an ambitious program of exhibitions, conversations, artist book signings and curated fair events.

An opening reception will be held for LensCulture artists, invited media, photo editors and industry insiders for a night of art appreciation and networking during New York’s largest international art fair dedicated to photography.

In addition to a group exhibition in New York for all 25 Emerging Talents, and cash prizes for the 8 Jurors’ Picks (a total of $12,000 in cash prizes), there are many other benefits included in these awards.

There are absolutely no limits on age, location, or genre, so gather your best work together and share your work with us for the opportunity to kickstart your career on the world stage.

LensCulture is seeking entries from members of the global photography community who have yet to receive exposure at an international level, aiming at discovering fresh and inspiring visions from the next great image-makers.

Please visit the official website for further information.
