The acceptance period for New Cosmos of Photography 2019 (42nd competition) has expired.
Thank you all for sending us so many entries.

Photography has been around for more than 170 years. Over this period, advances in technology have expanded the domain of cameras from film to digital, from still images to videos.
And with the spread of the Internet, smartphones, social media, and other recent innovations, it is easy for anyone today to take photos and enjoy communicating through photography.

Given the changed landscape around photography, we decided to take advantage of the New Cosmos of Photography’s 25th anniversary and accept both printed works by postal mail or courier and digital works (still images and videos) through online submission.

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.
