A Message From the Director of the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts and an Explanation of the Measures Taken to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

With the whole world facing the threat of COVID-19 we would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt sympathy to the victims and offer our deepest condolences to their families. We would also like to wish those who are currently struggling against the disease our hopes for a rapid recovery and furthermore, to express our sincere gratitude and respect to all those in the medical profession who are devoting themselves, night and day, to the struggle against this pandemic.
I hope that everybody will refrain from making unnecessary trips outdoors and do what they can to avoid infection, not only for their own sake but also for the sake of society and future.
The Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (KMoPA) will remain closed until further notice.

• Information Regarding the Virtual Museum/Exhibition
The first guiding principle of the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts is ‘Affirmation of Life.’ We want to empathize with all life through photographs, and hope that as many people as possible are able to experience the life that a photographer instills into their work. In the present situation we asked ourselves what the museum could do for the people and we decided to carry out various events on our website to allow everybody to come into contact with and enjoy the world of photography through social media.
1. Exhibit of all the works from the upcoming ‘2019 Young Portfolio Exhibition’ on the ‘YP Database.’  (search for the year 2019)
The pubic will be able to access a database of all the works in the (forthcoming) exhibition. We hope that through it, you will be able to experience the enthusiasm of young photographers from around the world.
The above address also allows access to all the works selected for the Young Portfolio since the museum was first established 25 years ago.
It presents works by young people from around the world over the last quarter century, offering a glimpse of the changing times, the variety of different cultures that exist and the individuality of the photographers.

2. The ‘Video Page’ showing the ‘‘2019 Young Portfolio Exhibition’
Sadly it is not currently possible for people to visit the museum in person so we have captured a view of the YP exhibition in three videos to allow people to experience the atmosphere of the event. In addition, various other videos produced in the past are also available for viewing.
We invite you all to visit this site as we pray for the day when the world will be able to overcome this crisis.

• Regarding Submissions for the ‘2020 Young Portfolio’
1. For people living in Japan and in countries where international postal services are still available: As it is still possible that mail deliveries could suffer long delays, the final date for entries from these countries has been extended.
Special measure for this year only — Entry deadline to be extended from April 15 to May 31 (6-week extension)
2. For people living in the 126 countries and regions where international postal services have been suspended: Facilities have been established to permit data submissions.
