2019 Aperture Portfolio Prize Shortlist

This year, Aperture's editors reviewed over 1,000 submissions during our annual Portfolio Prize competition. With a goal to identity contemporary trends in photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition, we are thrilled to announce this year's five finalists for the 2019 Aperture Portfolio Prize.

We are delighted to welcome these five finalists to our ranks of illustrious past winners and finalists, joining such artists as Ka-Man Tse, Natalie Krick, Eli Durst, Drew Nikonowicz, Amy Elkins, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Alexander Gronsky, Sarah Palmer, Louie Palu, Bryan Schutmaat, and many others. Our challenge is to now select one winner and four honorable mentions from this impressive group of finalists. The winning artist will be published in Aperture magazine, receive a $3,000 cash prize, and present an exhibition in New York.

The winner of the 2019 Aperture Portfolio Prize will be announced on Friday, April 19, and the finalists portfolios and statements will be featured on Aperture Online.
