Enter a series in the Emerging Talent Awards 2016 and get a free submission review! We believe that every photographer who enters deserves thoughtful feedback on their work. That’s why we have recruited over 100 of the top photo editors, educators, portfolio reviewers, curators, and other industry professionals to give you constructive feedback on your photography plus recommendations for improving your practice.

This continues to be one of the most meaningful services at LensCulture and an important part of our competitions. We are delighted with the positive feedback we have received from photographers:


“Not in my wildest dreams did I expect such a positive response! Thank you! It gives me validation to continue on my Photographic journey, always being honest and true to what I see and feel. Besides this, it was also very encouraging and thorough in critique of each image. Also noted and appreciated were all the relevant and further reading links. Thanks so much.” — James Niven

“I am quite excited and encouraged with the kind feedback that has been provided. I would like to say a big thank you for the depth and detail with which you have looked at the images and offered your views.” — Rehan Zia

“I found the comments most perceptive, precise and accurate. I will certainly bear them in mind when resuming this project (or other projects of a similar stylistic profile). I appreciate the fact that the reviewer meticulously analysed all the technical details of the photos, as well as the general idea underlying the whole series. Thank you very much!” — Alicja Dybowska
