LensCulture and the legendary photography agency Magnum Photos have joined forces to launch one of the best new opportunities for photographers everywhere in the world to be recognized and rewarded for their talent.

You are invited to enter the inaugural Magnum Photography Awards. Our distinguished jury will select 12 Winners and 20 Finalists from Documentary, Street, Portrait, Fine Art, Photojournalism and Open categories. In addition, the jury will select 7 photographers as "Jurors’ Picks” and give out 5 "Student Spotlight” awards to young, up-and-coming talents.

Winners, finalists and top-rated photographers will gain access to an unprecedented level of international exposure and recognition from two of the largest organizations in the photo industry, with a combined audience of over 4 million.

Celebrate 70 years of Magnum Photos with us!

Since 1947, Magnum has served as an important collective of the visionary photographers who captured (and continue to capture) world-famous, iconic images that define and shape our rapidly-changing lives. It is often said that if you picture an iconic image, but can't think who took it or where it can be found, it probably came from Magnum.

LensCulture's dedication to helping photographers move forward has helped to jumpstart careers and inspire a community of over 1.5 million across the globe to share work, critique projects and engage with each other. That's why Magnum partnered with us: to facilitate more stories of discovery and success. Here are just a few examples from previous LensCulture winners & finalists:


“Magnum Photos is delighted to be working with LensCulture on this exciting new competition, which we hope will attract diverse photographic practices from all over the world. 2016 marks a significant juncture for the agency as we launch a new, stories-first website, in the lead-up to our 70th anniversary. We view this new Award as an opportunity for our dedicated audience — and the photography community at large — to share in our celebrations.”
                              — Martin Parr, Magnum photographer and President of Magnum


Don't Wait to Enter!   Deadline: Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Enter a series or 5+ single images in the Magnum Photography Awards 2016 and get a free submission review! We believe that every photographer who enters deserves thoughtful feedback on their work. We have recruited dozens of top photo editors, portfolio reviewers, curators, and other industry professionals to give you constructive feedback on your photography plus recommendations for improving your practice.

We are delighted with the continued feedback from photographers:

“I really have to say thank you (BIG TIME!) to the LensCulture team: first of all, for the submission review I received after the LensCulture Award—it really helped me to re-edit the 8 pictures for the World Press Photo Award submission, where I then won 2nd prize!” — Christian Bobst

“LensCulture is a wonderful platform for photographers and getting the review of my submission was worth the price of entry in itself!” — Allison Stewart

“I really appreciate the review - it was much more in-depth than I expected. I am particularly grateful for the links you provided. I will work on my series more according to your guidelines. Thank you once again” — Alicja Brodowicz
