Regarding Japan Photo Contest result announcement - UPDATE
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Japanese photo contest, as part of our e-Matsuri:Brisbane.
As previously announced, we decided to conduct a separate judging system. We organised a panel of three judges, who we believe to be impartial and fair, to choose the winners of the competition (names and titles of judges are shown as below).
We have finalised the judging process over the weekend are now delighted to announce seven winners in 5 different prize categories.
All winners will be contacted by the organisers soon.
Thank you again to all participants and if anyone has any further enquiries with regards to this photo contest, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

🥇Grand Prize: KIOSK 🚅
Review：This photo makes you feel a little strange in a positive way, with a feeling of rush before getting on the Shinkansen mixed with quiet serenity.
（Ms Chieko Masuda, Acting Consul-General of Japan,Brisbane）
🥈Second Prize: Himeji Park Garden 🏯
Review：The Japanese garden and the age-old wooden bridges, moss and trees combine to create a sense of tranquillity and wabi-sabi.
（Mr. Nao Hirano, President of Japanese Community of Queensland）
🥉Third Prize: Shinjuku Godzilla 🦖
Review：The size of Godzilla is very well represented in the contrast with the streets of Shinjuku.
（Mr Tomohiro Koyama, Vice-Consul for cultural affairs ,Brisbane）
🏅Fourth Prize: Amateur Hour 🍙
Review：The rice balls look very delicious and have perfect form. Also, the two rice balls somehow look like two people who are close friends. It makes me smile.

e-Matsuri:Brisbane has been organised by the Matsuri Brisbane Committee, on behalf of Brisbane Seinendan Japanese Community (BSJC) in response to the unfortunate cancellation of Matsuri Brisbane 2021.
To honour the substantial efforts made by participants for Matsuri Brisbane 2021, and in appreciation of the support and understanding from everyone who wanted to attend, the idea of an e-Matsuri:Brisbane was proposed.
This provides a vehicle to bring together the spirit of Matsuri in a different shape and form this year. It’s important to note that e-Matsuri:Brisbane will not be exactly the same as Matsuri Brisbane itself, nor is it intended to replace it either.
We are committed to keeping the festive spirit alive, so e-Matsuri:Brisbane will be delivered to you in two different styles this year.
A Huge thanks🌸 to everyone who attended, participated, helped and sponsored at our very first event e-Matsuri:Brisbane.🥰😊 We couldn’t make this happen without wonderful support and attendee’s smiles.😊
All the funds raised from the e-Matsuri:Brisbane will be used toward Matsuri Brisbane 2022.🥁
We would be delighted if you could tell us your experience of e-Matsuri:Brisbane to improve our future Matsuri Brisbane.🥋
Your feedback helps us to make Matsuri Brisbane better!
Once again, thank you very much for your continuous support.🙇
