Statement by Tsuyoshi Ito
Every year, the caliber of submissions for this award gets ever more impressive, and it is getting harder to choose finalists. This year brought a huge amount of talent and passion with entrants from all over the world. Though selecting our finalists was a difficult process, it was highly rewarding to see the creativity and beauty of the submitted works.
The deciding factor in my decision was the uniqueness of photographers’ visions. In reviewing submissions, I looked for work that expressed an unexpected and unusual point of view through the collotype form. This is the work that I believe has the most potential for collaboration with Benrido Atelier.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this round of judging and I look forward to seeing the decisions of the other jurors.
