We encourage anyone, from anywhere, with a new perspective on the modern-day portrait to enter. 6 Winners, 8 Jurors' Picks and 25 Finalists will be chosen.
LensCulture is dedicated to helping all photographers move forward professionally. Through this competition, we will provide photographers from all over the world with opportunities for immediate exposure and meaningful feedback from a renowned group of industry professionals.
