How do you decide who gets a Portfolio account?
We don't have a formal application process to request invitations for a LensCulture Portfolio Profile account. We discover photographers in many different ways — by meeting them personally at portfolio reviews, conferences, workshops, festivals and exhibitions; by discovering their work through other photography magazines and websites, museum and gallery shows. Our editors judge several photography competitions, so we discover lots of new photographers that way. We also have an informal network of advisors around the world who introduce us to photographers whom they believe deserve some worldwide recognition. We are always looking for interesting work that we can publish on LensCulture and share with the world. So, chances are, if we see your work in any of these ways, and we think the readers of LensCulture could be inspired by your photographs, we will offer you a LensCulture Portfolio Profile account.
