Launched in 1991, the competition encourages entries from contestants around the world, irregardless of the age of the contestant or theme of the work. Previous winners have been supported through exhibitions and published collections of their winning works and the competition has come to be widely regarded as a springboard for new photographers. This year, the Grand Prize winner will receive JPY 1 million in prize money (about 8,500 euros) and a Canon camera, as well as the opportunity to host an individual exhibit.
