Presented by the Benrido Collotype Atelier, the HARIBAN AWARD, now in its sixth year, combines a 150-year-old analogue technique with the new vision of digital-age photography.
Professionals and amateurs alike are invited to submit black and white photographs for a chance to win this remarkable award.
The winner will receive a expenses-paid trip to the ancient city of Kyoto for two weeks to participate in the production of collotype prints. In collaboration with the Benrido printers, the selected artist will produce a portfolio of eight museum-quality collotype prints of their winning photographs.
The artist’s collotype prints will be exhibited in a solo exhibition of their works the following spring, April 2020.
All finalists will receive a printed catalogue with accompanying text by the competition’s esteemed jurors.
You have this ability to have a relationship with an expert…to collaborate between an artist and a master printer… they will be able to benefit from the exchange of ideas and from the exchange of expertise.” — Simon Baker, Director Maison Européenne de la Photographie.
