Share your pictures to enhance a sense of solidarity against corona!


Many of us are still forced to stay at home or only accessible within our vicinity. Join our #neighborhoodphotocontest to show how we spend time uniquely under a quarantine/lockdown status due to this corona-virus mess.
Please share a sense of solidarity among creative photographers.

Marumi Photo Contest is a newly launched international photography project. Our goal is to interact with photographers worldwide and give them opportunities to express their work on an international stage.
Creative and highly motivated contributors can be nominated as our photo ambassador of the country in the future to offer them another incentive collaborating with us. The entry is completely free of charge, and open to all photographers worldwide.
