The Photo Contest is open to all residents of the GTA (including City of Toronto, Halton Region, Peel Region, York Region, and Durham Region). Those residents of the GTA that have spent no more than 90 days in Japan on leisure in 2018 are also considered eligible.

Please refer to the Japan Photo Contest Rules for further details.

The contest is open for entries from May 12 to June 30. You will need to follow the Instagram accounts of the Consulate-General of Japan in Toronto (@JapanConsToronto) and share your entry using the hashtag #JapanCanada90.  You will also need to follow Canon Canada (@CanonCanada) .

There are the Youth (under 18) and General categories so please choose the appropriate one to enter.

A Grand Prize will be awarded to one work selected from among all the entries in both categories. As well, first, second and third place entries as well as four judges’ picks from each categories will be awarded prizes. (Thus, a total of 15 entries will be awarded prizes.) In addition to the prizes and accompanying certificates, the winning entries will also be exhibited in a public venue. Details on the prizes are here.
