Tokyo international photography competition. Deadline: June 28, 2016

Open to photographers worldwide. Winners will be Showcased in Traveling Exhibition

Building on the success of last year’s critically acclaimed touring exhibition of the 2015 Tokyo International Photo Competition winners, presented in Tokyo, Japan; Guatemala City, Guatemala; New York City, USA; and Sydney, Australia (still on view for a few more days at the “Head-on Photo Festival”), the theme for the fourth edition is Origin.

Etymologically speaking, “origin” denotes “beginning”, “source”, “birth”, “rise” or “start”. Marcus Garvey, a renowned civil rights activist at the turn of the previous century, said “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where do we belong?

Since the dawn of time, cultures have shared origin myths, weaving an intergenerational chain linking the past to the present. From the Norse cosmology of nine home worlds unified by the World Tree Yggdrasil, to modern-day endeavors in genealogy and mapping one’s family tree, origin stories provide us with a sense and a place of belonging. Origins allow us to live in the present, with an eye on a future shaped by our collective past.

At a time of increased uncertainty and tension on both the interpersonal and global stages, photography’s role in helping us negotiate our daily existence has never been stronger. For our fourth edition of the Tokyo International Photography Competition, we ask you to capture Origin.
