Recipients get free transportation to and two weeks’ accommodation in Kyoto, Japan, for a unique chance to collaborate with Kyoto’s master artisans. During the photographer's stay, the winner will be afforded an amazing opportunity to print exquisite collotypes of their best work. These will then be part of the Kyotographie 2018 exhibition. Photographers at all levels in their career are invited to submit monochromatic photographs for a chance to win this remarkable award. In addition to the grand prize, the jury will award honorable mentions to noteworthy competitors, whose work will be featured in the competition catalog.
