The New Cosmos of Photography is an international competition sponsored by Canon Inc.
The New Cosmos of Photography support photographers’ attempts to create still images or videos/movies or a fusion of the two, that go beyond previous photographic concepts and genres. We regard still images and videos/movies to be continuous and consecutive. We are hoping for brand-new video works that no one has ever seen before.
Therefore, we encourage entries of works that provide a glimpse of tomorrow’s photography and open up new scenes for photography and art.
