Chaves, a city in northern Portugal, is holding their 2nd international photo contest. They are accepting entries from April 20 to May 25, 2007.
Cash prizes will be awarded, as well as exhibitions of winning works in Chaves. Fifty finalists will be selected by an Admissions Panel comprising of leading photographers from various countries. The public will also be allowed to vote for their favorite.
I will be a member of the Admissions Panel representing Japan.

My latest images center on spring festivals, cherry blossoms, and Tokyo. My Photo Xplosion continues with images from all 47 prefectures now online, finally. Even with 14,000+ photos, it still barely scratches the surface. But it’s a start. I still have thousands more to put online and many more cities, towns, and villages to visit and photograph in the months and years to come.
Traveling around Japan is one thing, but sorting and putting all these images online is another. Certainly very time-consuming, but fun. It’s a personal and lifetime quest to learn more about Japan. And to share my accumulated knowledge, experience, and images with others at the same time.
Direct links to each prefecture’s images are now provided on the home page. If you want to use any photos, Contact Us. Enjoy!
