This month, grab a camera (any one will do!), get out of the house, and take as many artistic shots as you can of your neighborhood, your city, or wherever in the world you happen to be! This year, we are looking for photos of all things MADE: human-made, machine-made, nature-made, home-made.

As always we encourage photographers to use any camera they have, even if it’s just your smart phone. Photos can be from anywhere in the world. All we ask is that you submit photos taken after the themes were announced. Interpret each theme how you like and send us as many as you want!

Email us your largest photo files labeled with your name and the theme (example: nature-made1_your_name.jpg) to

Photos remain copyright of the photographer and photographers are given credit on all promotional material. For unbiased judging by those in attendance, photos must NOT have watermarks or timestamps. Also, do NOT send us square or panoramic-shaped photos as all photos will be printed on A4-sized photo paper.

Winning photos are chosen by the public and prizes awarded to photographers in attendance of the exhibition on November 20. Winners will receive a commemorative photo book and T-shirt courtesy of Gekka T-shirts. Gekka is a locally owned brand that makes hand-drawn designs, high-quality clothing, and donates a portion of their proceeds to the children’s charity, Ashinaga. Ashinaga provides financial and emotional support to children around the world who have been orphaned.

Whether you’re a photographer in the event or not, come to Pinebrooklyn Gallery on Sunday, November 20 for a visual and artistic feast! Meet the photographers, vote on your favorite shots, and enjoy the fun at Japan’s funkiest community-art event. Amazing photos, a rooftop café, great music, and a few surprises await.
