I don't even know why I'm telling anyone about this opportunity the way I'm feeling today. Am wondering if EXPIRATION NOTICE is going to go on past Volume 4. It's not the hits we are getting, we get plenty, it's the amount of submissions and general support. Wanted to get a Women's Edition together for Volume 5 as we have had hardly any submissions from that quarter, asked other bloggers with a vested interest, perhaps I'm being naive here, coz not a sausage. Oh well perhaps I'm the only one over 35 who is sick, jealous and fucking bitter, about calls like this:
YOUNG PORTFOLIO '09 ACQUISITIONS
In an effort to preserve works by young persons enthusiastic about expressing themselves through the art of photography, the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (K*MoPA) issues an annual call for submissions to its "Young Porfolios" program.
This is not a contest. The single condition is that applicants must be 35 years old or younger. All photographers, professional or amateur and regardless of nationality, are invited to submit their published or unpublished works to be considered for induction into the Museum's permanent collection.
We strongly believe that there is no clearer signal or more direct means of support for the young photographer than the purchase of their work for a permanent museum collection. Our principal objective is to encourage and cultivate the precious sprouts of younger talents.
Prior judges include Moriyama Daido, Araki Nobuyoshi and Hosoe Eikoh. Applicants of all categories are highly expected. We look forward to receiving unique images showcasing the creativity of younger artists in the field of photography.Online Application:1 - 30 April 2009Young Portfolio '09:http://yp.kmopa.org/index.php?ml_lang=enKiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts:http://www.kmopa.com/index_e.htm
