Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (K*MoPA)

Aug. 9Aug. 24, 2014

  • Aug. 9Aug. 24, 2014
  • Closed Monday(if Monday is a national holiday or a substitute holiday, it is the next day)
  • Admission:Free

We look for young photography enthusiasts, buy their works, and preserve these for posterity as part of our permanent collection. In all fields of art, works that attempt to transcend the age in which they are produced have always been criticized, ignored, or rejected. Even today, many museums collect only works by artists with established reputations. Yet surely it is the works of young people, who have yet to make a name for themselves and who struggle in the process of artistic fulfillment, that are our future asset, possessing the power to pioneer a new age. We decided to encourage these young people by collecting their works. Any photographer under the age of 35, amateur or professional, may submit work for selection, which is carried out once a year. Basically, there are no qualifications for applicants, regardless of nationality and gender, and works may be either published or not. We have great expectations regarding the courage and enthusiasm of young photographers.
