Higashikawa, the “Town of Photography”, has dedicated to nurturing photography culture as the capital of photography through its unique events. The Higashikawa Portfolio Audition at the Red Brick Warehouse is another initiative to find new talents and further promote photography culture. Participating photographers will have a chance to discuss their works with our panel of judges. Judging process also involves the votes from everyone who attend the event in July 2017. The winner of the Grand Prix will be entitled to holding an exhibition at TOKYO INSTITUTE Of PHOTOGRAPHY (Tokyo), and publish a pictorial record.

By holding this event, we hope to see new talents emerging from Higashikawa, the town of photography.
