The LensCulture Exposure Awards 2018 aim to discover and showcase the world's best contemporary photographers! As we approach the Awards' 10th anniversary, this year's competition will celebrate a decade of helping photographers of all levels gain global recognition. The Awards will culminate with a series of international gallery and festival events, worldwide media coverage, and career-changing exposure for the jury's six winners, eight jurors' picks and 25 finalists.

Each of the winners, jurors' picks and finalists will gain access to the broadest exposure we've ever offered through a LensCulture award. Together with our audience of 2.8 million, we will celebrate 10 years of exposure as one of the largest contemporary photography communities in the world!

For the first time in our Exposure Awards, we are waiving fees for anyone who enters a single image. We truly want to discover the most talented image-makers—we believe that EVERY photographer deserves the opportunity for exposure and recognition without restriction. So, send in your best work today!
