Presented by the Benrido Collotype Atelier, the Hariban Award, now in its third year, combines a 150-year-old analog technique with the new vision of digital-age photography. Professionals and amateurs alike are invited to submit monochromatic photographs for a chance to win this remarkable award. The winner will receive an expenses-paid trip to the ancient city of Kyoto to participate in the production of a collotype portfolio, which will be exhibited as an associated program of Kyotographie 2017.
Contest Prize & TERMS
