The Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (K*MoPA) invites all young photographers (under 35) to send original works. From the several thousand works that arrive each year, approx. 300 works are bought for the collection.
This invitation is not a call to a contest where pieces are judged, then ranked. Rather, it is the Museum’s wish to collect works by young and emerging photographers for its permanent collection. We believe that there is no clearer signal or a more direct means of support for the young photographer than the purchase of their work for a permanent museum collection. This is why the Museum acquires work by those promise to be our future photographic visionaries. The rules and conditions are listed below.
