This new project allows you to submit photos easily whenever you wish and we have also expanded the range to make the contest available to people all over the world. This means we now accept submission from countries outside of Japan. This will create a shift towards a greater variety of work to show to the public than it has been seen so far.
In the near future, we intend to implement projects with specific themes.
Please go ahead and submit your photos.
