Photographers seek recognition and participate in many different type of contests to get more exposure but what are the contests or the magazines out there that actually publish portfolios in print publications? Check out the list we have created for you.
S›N MAGAZINE is an independent quarterly visual publication that runs parallel to an innovative digital platform. Founded and created in 2010 by three photographers, Bethany Grace, Emily Tebbetts and Julia Wang.
Limited edition copies of each issue are available through Blurb, featuring fashion photography from photographers, stylists and designers around the world.
OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHER is a national magazine published 11 times per year for enthusiasts with a special passion for nature, travel and outdoor sports. We take a fresh look at the modern photographic world by encouraging photography as part of a lifestyle associated with outdoor recreation.
Each month AAP Magazine gives photographers a chance to be published in a printed magazine on a specific theme. Photographers need to send at least three images and a blind jury chooses the winners.
Just follow the instructions to submit your work and wait for a response.
Communication Arts has six juried competitions that cover the entire field of visual communications. With winning entries published both in print and online, art and creative directors, graphic designers, Web designers, copywriters, photographers and illustrators find these competitions a priority for worldwide promotion and a valuable resource for potential clients and colleagues.
Submission is open to all photographers internationally. Each new theme for submissions will be announced in the current issue, and after that on our website and on our Instagram page. All processes, formats, techniques and experience levels are welcomed. Color work should be converted to black & white. Please follow guidelines closely.
We encourage a broad, unusual and creative interpretation of our theme. There is no need to be literal, but do have images relate to the theme.
Images are chosen by artistic vision, overall excellence, how they relate to the theme, how well they reproduce in B&W and the whims of fate. All are subjective.
