10th DAYS JAPAN International Photojournalism Awards: Defending and Advocating Dignity of Human Beings and Nature
The monthly photojournalism magazine DAYS JAPAN was launched in March 2004 in response to the burgeoning demand for quality reporting from the world's many war fronts and conflicts that claim so many lives today.
The world-class photographers who contribute to our publication do their work at great peril, many risking their lives for their shots. Regardless of how the photos are taken, DAYS JAPAN aims to always tell the truth from the perspective of victimized civilians and not of those exercising authority through military or other power.
DAYS JAPAN invited photographers and journalists worldwide to participate in the 9th DAYS JAPAN International Photojournalism Awards in 2013.
Many distinguished works were submitted from around the globe, and we would like to thank all those who sent in entries.
We are now accepting entries for the 10th DAYS JAPAN International Photojournalism Awards contest to be held in 2014.
Submission requirements and application forms available here: http://www.daysjapan.net/e/award2014_10/index2.html
Photographs must have been taken in the two-year period between January 2012 and December 2013.
Submitted works may be a single photo, photo essays or portfolios.
Please make sure that all works include a short biography (about 100 words) of the photographer and that the application form includes: title of work; captions (maximum 50 words per caption); location; date of shooting; whether the originals were shot on film or taken by digital camera (if taken by digital camera, also include the file size of digital data); along with the photographer's name, address, e-mail address and telephone number.
Please submit the photographs in digital files or prints.
Works will be judged as a whole set, regardless of submission as a single photo, photo essay or portfolio.
