How do I know if I'm an emerging photographer?

All entrants must be 18 or over; otherwise it doesn't matter how long you've been shooting or how old you are. As long as you're not represented commercially by an agent and your fine art work is not represented by a gallery we will consider you for this contest.

How long does it take to enter?

It takes less than 5 minutes to enter as long as you have the information ready including bio, images and payment info.

I'm having a problem uploading my images.

Please check to make sure your images are at least 760 pixels on the shortest side (larger is fine). If you still are having problems submitting, please email zolton@featureshoot.com.

What type of work is eligible?

All photo-based work is eligible be it film, digital, tintype, camera-less, etc.

How many photos may I submit?

Up to 5 photos will be accepted per entry. Photographers may submit multiple entries.

Can I submit multiple projects?

Yes, you can submit as many projects as you like, but you should submit each project separately. You may submit up to 5 photos for each project.

Can you tell me if the up to 5 images submitted need to be all part of a related series, or can they be 5 different images?

They can be part of a related series or 5 different images.  However, we would advise against sending unconnected singles (e.g. an editorial portrait, a fine art still life, a monkey at the zoo, a mountain landscape).

Can two photographers submit as one entry?

Yes, if you are working as a team, please make sure to note this in your bio.

Is there a fee to enter?

Yes, there is a US$35 fee to enter up to 5 images. Entries are open until November 13, 2019.

How does the People's Choice Award work?

Every entry will be made public on The Emerging Photography Awards website here. At that point, you will be able to share your entry with your network and they can "vote" by clicking the heart button underneath your entry. The photographer with the most votes at the end of each fortnight will receive a year-long subscription to Aperture Magazine.

Do I have to have a website to apply?

No, you do not need a website to apply, but it is helpful. This is a contest for emerging photographers, so the quality of your work will be judged on the images you submit, not your web presence.

When is the exhibition of winning work?

The one night show at Aperture Gallery in New York will take place in January 2020.

How will the work be printed and displayed?

Feature Shoot will be responsible for all costs relating to printing, installing and overall display of the work at Aperture Gallery.

When will the winners be announced?

Winners will be announced in late November 2019.

I have a question about entering not listed here. How do I get in touch?
