Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts / Young Portfolio Acquisitions

Museum collection opportunity for artists under 35 years old.


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.

Through our last Young Portfolio 2018 (24rd), we acquired 151 works by 18 artists of 8 countries.

Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts calls for the submission of works for its permanent collection.

Target: People of 35 and younger. They can be professionals or amateurs from any country in the world. Previously published works may be submitted and any number of works, up to 50 prints, are admissible.
