Call for Entries! LensCulture is pleased to announce the opening of the LensCulture Exposure Awards 2015.

DEADLINE: Monday, December 21, 2015


**Entering the awards has a wide variety of benefits: **

Six winners and 25 finalists will be featured in a special exhibition at Somerset House in the heart of London as part of Photo London 2016. Six top winners will be awarded cash prizes. Winners and finalists will also be projected at some of the top photography festivals around the world. And their work will be published across LensCulture's platforms and channels, reaching a global audience of 1.5 million.

Everyone can benefit: ALL photographers who enter a series of images will be able to receive a written critical review of their submission from an industry professional. Plus hundreds of the top-rated photographers (in addition to the winners and finalists chosen by the jury) will have their work shared with our influential network of LensCulture Insiders. During the open call for entries, LensCulture editors select a few submissions each day to be highlighted in the online gallery on the website and in social media — giving global exposure to hundreds of photographers before the formal judging begins.
