Also, thank you to everyone who applied and participated in the popularity vote.

Grand Prize: “Let’s play again” (Naoki Shimada)


[Comment from Toshiyuki Arai, representative judge from Arai Photo Studio]
I had the impression that there were many works of particularly high artistic quality this year compared to previous years.
I feel like the judges’ evaluations are also mixed.
Among them, the works that incorporate a variety of materials and points have won awards. I am always amazed by how you capture the art that we know well. I look forward to participating in this judging committee every year.


We are planning to exhibit the winning works of the photo contest as follows.
