The Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (K*MoPA) invites all young photographers to send in your finest images.

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.  The Museum 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 Museum look forward to receiving unique images showcasing the creativity of younger artists in the field of photography.
