Portrait of America, in its inaugural year, is currently accepting submissions. The nationwide project aims to show the true face of modern America.

Amid the ongoing turmoil of the divisive presidential election, recent news, and the growing international refugee crisis, America is on the verge of enormous change and great disagreement with passionate beliefs on all sides of the discussion.

With uncertainty ahead, Portrait of America, seems now more relevant than ever.

Portrait of America aims to reflect on the unique history and diversity of our country through portraits of the people who live and work here – the people who define who we are and where we are going.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN AMERICAN?

Both working photographers and non-professionals are welcome to apply. Submissions are open to anyone with a camera who can show us the true face of America!

Show us what it means to be an American. Through your photographic images, we want to see the people, places, objects, and experiences that define America, to you. There are no restrictions to the subject matters you shoot. From family and friends, to selfies and landscapes, we welcome all subjects, all photographic styles, and all techniques. We simply want to see honest portraits that reflect the current realities defining our country.

The competition will select 100 winning portraits to be displayed on walls, bus benches and billboards across the country reaching millions of people. The winning images will be exhibited during the 2018 Los Angeles Festival of Photography and partnering photo festivals.

Images from the competition will also be included in the first edition Portrait of America book.

Both working photographers and non-professionals are welcome to apply. Submissions are open to anyone with a camera who can show us the true face of America!
