Regarding Japan Photo Contest result announcement - UPDATE

【Winner announcement】

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 taka@seinendan.org.au.

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.
