TOKYO INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL COMPETITION. Deadline: June 30, 2014.

The goal of the Tokyo International Photography Competition (TIPC) is to create a series of cultural and geographical bridges between some the world’s largest photographic communities. It provides a unique opportunity for photographers from across North America, Europe and Japan to present their artistic visions beyond their country’s borders and open up possibilities for cross-pollination and cross-border collaborations.

There are numerous competitions whose aim is to discover new photographic talent from around the globe, but many of these opportunities are often beyond the reach of those who do not speak a certain language or have a deep understanding of a particular culture. This has often been the case for Japanese photographers trying to enter foreign markets and for foreigners wanting to present and exhibit their work in Japan.

The highly celebrated launch of TIPC in 2013 was the first step of a three-year journey that will culminate with the launch of an international photography festival in Tokyo, starting in 2015. In August of this year, in addition to the second – expanded – edition of TIPC, The Tokyo Institute of Photography will present the first Tokyo International Portfolio Review, bringing together internationally-renowned editors and curators from around the world.

Nine internationally renowned jurors from around the world will review all the images submitted and nominate a diverse group of talented photographers whose work will be exhibited in Tokyo and Brooklyn in the fall of 2014, and Berlin in the spring of 2015.

THEME
Identity is the way we are defined and recognized by ourselves and others. Who do we relate to? How do others relate to us? Nationality, religion, and gender are some of the ways we place ourselves into collective groups; while unique characteristics distinguish us as individuals.

The Tokyo International Photography Competition invites you to explore this complex concept of “identity” in our ever changing world.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: JUNE 30, 2014
ENTRY FEE: $30 (USD) per series (up to 6 images)

EIGHT SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHERS – THREE REGIONS
A group of 8 photographers will be selected by other Jury to present their work in a group exhibition that will travel to Tokyo (JP), New York (USA), and Berlin (DE).

ONE GRAND PRIX WINNER
In addition to the group exhibition, one photographer will be chosen by the Jury to receive:

– All-expenses paid trip to participate in the Tokyo International Portfolio Review taking place in August 2014, in Tokyo, Japan.
– Double-page feature in PHaT PHOTO magazine.
– Special Feature in LensCulture.

Introduction by the Course Directors

“We believe that photography is something you can easily teach yourself, you do not really need a school for that. In fact, our students usually know their trade quite well. What you do need are people who support you and give you input, advice, and courage – in fact, this is maybe the single most important thing. Learning by doing, but hand in hand with a strong team of professionals and tutors, this is the concept of Professional Photography course at the IED Madrid.
Our invited lecturers have quite different working and teaching styles, according to their experiences and the fields they come from. The workshops will be held by professionals in the fields of documentary, fashion, portrait, product photography and advertising, but always with focus on creative techniques rather than pure camera work and technical knowledge.
This Master Program will provide the students with working tools that they can then implement in many environments. Furthermore, they can decide for themselves how much they want to dig into each field, and find their own way of working with (and around) photography.
What we want to teach to our students is a methodology, not technical details. The invited specialists in photography, publishing, postproduction, lightning communication theory will teach from their own point of view, and emphasize things that they find most important. This broadness and also its international spirit make the course something really special.”
