The Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (K*MoPA) issues an annual call for submissions to its "Young Portfolios" program. Selected works are purchased for the museum's collection and exhibited there in March 2013.
In an effort to preserve works by young persons enthusiastic about expressing themselves through the art of photography, the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts(K*MoPA) issues an annual call for submissions to its "Young Portfolios" program.
This is not a contest. All photographers, professional or amateur and regardless of nationality, are invited to submit their published or unpublished works to be considered for induction into the Museum's permanent collection. The single condition is that applicants must be 35 years old or younger. We look forward to receiving unique images showcasing the creativity of younger artists in the field of photography.
For more information, please go to "Call for Entries". Applications must be made via the website. The period for receiving submissions runs from April 15, 2012 to May 15 2012. The works submitted must be shipped to the museum in Japan.
There is a submission fee - see website for full details:
- For applications from Japan, the application fee is 2000 yen for applicants submitting one to 30 prints; for applicants submitting 31 to 50 prints, the application fee is 3000 yen.
- For applications from other countries, the application fee is US$15.
Selected works will be purchased by the Museum at prices from JPY30,000 to JPY100,000 per work. In the case of multi-image works, the selection committee may, at its discretion, choose to purchase only some of the images. Photographers (copyright holders) whose work is selected for acquisition will be requested to sign the purchase agreement prescribed by the Museum.
The “Young Portfolio Acquisitions 2012” exhibition is scheduled to open in March, 2013, at the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts.
