The Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (K*MoPA) invites all young photographers to send their finest images.
This invitation is not a call to a contest where pieces are judged, then ranked. Rather, it is the Museum’s wish to collect works by young and emerging photographers for its permanent collection.
