About Competition

Presented by the Benrido Collotype Atelier, the HARIBAN AWARD, now in its seventh year, combines a 160-year-old analogue technique with the new vision of digital-age photography. Professionals and amateurs alike are invited to submit black and white photographs for a chance to win this remarkable award. The winner will receive a trip to the ancient city of Kyoto to participate in the production of collotype prints and will be exhibited in a solo exhibition the following spring.

“You have this ability to have a relationship with an expert…to collaborate between an artist and a master printer… they will be able to benefit from the exchange of ideas and from the exchange of expertise.” — Simon Baker, Director Maison Européenne de la Photographie
