For photographers who are establishing themselves or just starting out, Emerging Photographer is the perfect opportunity to get a foot in the door of the industry. The magazine is sent out twice a year to the most important creatives in advertising, publishing and more, and is also distributed to major photo festivals and photography events throughout the year. The digital edition on issuu.com has been named a "Featured" publication twice, leading to 32,000+ reads and over 1,400,000 impressions.
Our jury, made up of editors from Emerging Photographer, PDN and Rangefinder, pore over every entry to select the group of photographers who will be featured. It’s always a long, spirited debate over the course of several days, and we are incredibly proud of the caliber of photographers featured in each issue. Every photographer retains his or her copyright, providing us limited licensing usage for the issue and promotion of Emerging Photographer.
The best work to enter is a cohesive series or collection that represents your voice and aesthetic. Tell a story with your work and be careful with your edit, selecting complementary images ordered in a way that makes sense.
