Introducing The First AAP Magazine
Introducing The First AAP Magazine
Our first printed issue of AAP Magazine will feature the best projects showcasing the theme Light. Light is what allows us to see. It is what shapes and colors every object, creates depth, mood and mystery. Daylight, candlelight, inner-light, traffic light...

Play with light!


Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.
-- George Eastman

Where would the photographer be without light, the basic tool of all photographers? From the blackest night to the brightest day, the deepest shadows to the starkest highlights, send us your images that illustrate your understanding and response to light! This can be natural light or artificial light, everything from an ode to Josef Sudek to a nod to Joel Meyerowitz and his wonderful mixed lighting color photographs. The time of day and type of light often determine the mood and the feeling of the photograph. Send us your images, both where light may not just influence the pictures, but where it may also be the subject solely.

Be inspired. Be curious. Be fearless. We are ready.

Whether in portrait, landscape, fashion, street or any other form of photography - classic or experimental: We're open to all genres and we want to publish your best work in our first issue of AAP Magazine.

Winners will receive $1,000 in cash awards, their winning image(s) or full portfolio published in AAP Magazine Vol.1, extensive press coverage and global recognition.
