The AX3 - American Aperture Awards recognizes excellence and
honors advances in contemporary photography.
Photography is the driving visual force of our time. In still and movie form, images influence how we think, see and act. Whether by conjuring past times or transporting us to the farthest reaches of this planet, photographs expose our humanity.

The American Aperture Awards (AX3) is an international open call for photography possessing uncommon vision. This opportunity is open to photographers of all backgrounds who capture images that make the unknowable known. Our goal is to celebrate the most iconic photos taken by new and emerging talent, as well as professionals, from around the world and award their photographic insights.

It is with great pleasure and excitement that we announce the 2013 American Aperture Awards (AX3) winners! After reviewing over 1,100 entries from skilled photographers in 63 countries around the globe, our expert judges narrowed down the field to four major award winners and 51 winners in each additional category.
