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.
Your application must include the items listed below. There is no entry fee during the application process.
Who can submit:
Photographers worldwide producing work for journalism, media, editorial, advertising, fashion, entertainment, the music industry, fine art, book publishing, online/mobile media, private and public engagements, as well as NGOs and corporate companies are eligible to submit. Photographers represented by an agency will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
Photographers who do not have a website can contact us for a free trial account, which will be active until the results are announced via Newsletter and on the Website. The talent may choose to upgrade to a paid membership at any point.
