Art of Osaka Photo Contest from the Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau
The photo contest has ended,
but continue to follow @art_of_osaka on Instagram!
The Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau has launched a new photo contest featuring the Art of Osaka.
Lasting until February 28, anyone can contribute to Osaka art and tourism.
Submitted photos will be gathered to create a large mosaic to be put on display at the Osaka City Museum of Fine Arts.
In collaboration with the Osaka City Museum of Fine Arts, the Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau has launched the Art of Osaka Photo Contest, featuring 5 locations centered around the museum in the Tennoji Area and running from February 1 through 28!
Through this contest, we aim to encourage people of all ages, but especially younger age brackets, to discover the gems within Osaka by stepping foot in specific areas and photographing spots and subjects that feel artistic to them.
Photographs posted during the contest period will be gathered into a large mosaic piece, and the completed work will be displayed in a free, open area at the Osaka City Museum of Fine Arts. With this work, our goal is to encourage people of younger ages who have fewer opportunities to visit art museums to go and see the work that they contributed to.
We are striving to spark more passion for Osaka and to revitalize of Osaka's tourism, which has been heavily impacted by the pandemic, by encouraging people of all kinds to spread interest in Osaka within their own circles and via word of mouth.
