About Aesthetica

Aesthetica Magazine is a destination for art and culture. In-depth features foreground today’s most innovative practitioners across art, architecture, photography and design. The magazine has national and international distribution and contributes to a total reach of 500,000+, with a significant online presence across the website and social media.

We believe a magazine is an experience. Each issue combines outstanding design, journalism and editorial coverage. Aesthetica is the place to find out about the latest news, reviews and practitioners. As an independent magazine, we bring readers the best new talent – artists who are contributing to the global dialogue on how art helps us to make sense of our complicated world.

Across the brand, we also produce a number of awards, exhibitions and events that are focused on talent development in art, photography, literature and film. The awards celebrate excellence from both new and established practitioners. These comprise the Aesthetica Short Film Festival, the Art Prize, the Future Now Symposium and the Creative Writing Award.
