Our mission is simple: to discover the best of contemporary photography and share it with the largest audience possible.
LensCulture is one of the most comprehensive and far-reaching resources for discovering contemporary photography talent around the world. We believe that recognition and exposure are essential for photographers of all levels to move forward creatively and professionally, and this belief underpins our ongoing efforts to share, celebrate and reward great photography.
Over 15 years, we’ve built a global online audience of more than three million photography makers, lovers and thinkers from 160 countries and we're proud to offer career-changing opportunities through our photography awards, exhibitions in leading cities, festival screenings, and books. With our online magazine, submission reviews and our free downloadable guides we aim to be the home of photography inspiration, advice and recommendations for our community because they are the beating hearts and curious minds at the centre of everything we do, and our goal is to help them succeed.
We are a small group of dynamic and diverse individuals who bring LensCulture to life through our shared passion for photography. As a contemporary online business, our team is distributed around the world. Many of us are active in the international photography community as curators, designers, portfolio reviewers, writers, educators, consultants, and of course, photographers.
