Submission fee

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.
