Submissions are closed.
Submission to Visura Grants and Open Calls is free for our members. While we encourage new members to join Visura (review costs), we actively discourage photographers from joining for the sole purpose of applying to a contest.
We believe in a better model and we seek to create an alternative to the status quo of pay-per-contest.
We want to focus on your projects.
Long-time National Geographic Senior Photo Editor Elizabeth Krist will select 10 photographers from the open call and feature one project a day--publishing two images representing the project--on Visura’s Instagram feed to highlight the photographers’ images, work, and visions.APPLICATION PROCEDURE
