For the 7th Edition of the Tokyo International Photography Competition, we invite photographers around the world to submit their photographs addressing the causes and effects of climate change that threaten both our planet and the human race.
The 7th Edition’s Topic Is Turbulence
Over 85% of wetlands have been lost. Roughly half of the world’s coral is gone. At least 75 million acres of primary or recovering forest areas have been destroyed in the last ten years.
Rising sea levels, superstorms, melting polar ice, disappearing islands, wildfires… the list goes on. It is undeniable that the earth is changing rapidly as human population and consumption continue to grow. Today, with the threats of human-induced climate change comes a time for conversation and a need for transformative changes.
We need to talk about climate change now, and the first steps we can take to slow down the environmental costs — starting with everyone agreeing that climate change is very much a real and imminent threat.
Open to all amateurs and professional photographers worldwide. Entrants must be at least 18 years of age as of the date of entry.
Winners will be selected on or about March 25, 2020, and notified via email no later than April 8, 2020.
Winners’ names will be available online at tokyophotocompetition.com no later than April 17, 2020.
Selected photographers will be invited to have an exhibition of their work at the Tokyo Institute of Photography in Tokyo, Japan; the United Photo Industries Gallery in Brooklyn, New York; Wonder Photoday in Taipei, Taiwan; and the PhotoIreland Festival in Dublin, Ireland.
$40 per set of 5–10 images. There is no limit to the number of entries allowed per person.
