Shin-Kong Mitsukoshi PHOTO CONTEST 2024
The Shin-Kong Mitsukoshi International Photography Exhibition has been held since 2007 with the aim of providing a stage for photographers to show their talent. Unlike most competitions, this event allows participants to decide their own photographic themes and tell a visual story with five images. Beyond a test of photographic technique, this approach also challenges the artists' subject selection, conceptual clarity, and communication ability. In addition to the prizewinners receiving generous awards, the prize-winning works will be displayed in a touring exhibition shown at Shin-Kong Mitsukoshi department stores in northern, central, and southern Taiwan, enabling even more people to appreciate the photographers’ visual stories.
