Each year since 1999, the editors of PDN have selected 30 emerging photographers who represent a variety of styles and genres and have demonstrated a distinctive vision, creativity, and versatility. This year, the editors reviewed the work of more than 300 photographers from around the world. To be considered, the photographers must have been shooting on their own professionally for five years or less. Most were nominated by photo editors, art directors, curators, educators, and fellow photographers around the world, and some were invited by editors based on work seen in promotions, portfolio reviews, or photo contests.

Profiles on each of the 2015 PDN’s 30 photographers are featured in PDN’s April 2015 issue. Thanks to support of the PDN’s 30 sponsors, PDN will also hosts six panel discussions on career strategies for emerging photographers at photo schools, workshops, and festivals around the U.S. throughout the year.
