Young Portfolio is a program organized by the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (K*MoPA) to support young photographers from around the world by exhibiting and acquiring their works for our permanent collection.
Anybody under the age of 35 is welcome to submit their works. We are looking for works by devoted photographers who are passionate about their creative efforts.
It is not a contest in which people are only eligible to win a prize once. Multiple submissions may be made up until the age of 35. We hope that by selecting works by the same young artist on a regular basis, we will help build their confidence.
Young Portfolio is unique in that it invites the wider world to recognize the true value of these young artists’ abilities while simultaneously preserving their work for posterity.
Ever since the opening of the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts in 1995, the museum and its “Young Portfolio” (YP) program have received support from the Shinnyo-en as part of its philanthropic activities. Now, in order to open the door to an even greater number of young photographers, it has been decided to waive the application fee for the “2022 Young Portfolio.”
◾Selected works will be purchased by the Museum at prices from JPY30,000 (about €228 Euro) to JPY100,000 (aprox. €764 Euro) per work.
◾Exhibition Oct-Dec, 2022, at the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts.
