こどもによるこどものためのフォトコンテスト

こどもがまんなかPROJECT
ENTRY 2020.4.01.~2020.8.31.

What does the world look like from the eyes of a child?
The sense of excitement that comes from opening new doors
and exploring the world for the first time lives
on in children's first artistic creations.

ABOUT

The "Child-Centered Photo Contest" is an artistic photo contest by children, for children, held by the Child-Centered Project, a project promoted by All Japan Private Kindergarten Federation.
In this contest, which provides children with creative opportunities by letting them become photographers, children are free to take pictures of whatever they want, using whatever kind of camera they want, including smartphones, of course. The only rule is that the children themselves need to think about the theme, and to create art by taking photos.
This year's contest theme is "I love...".
This contest requires neither knowledge nor skills -- children just need to follow their hearts and create art from the world around them.
