Created to celebrate the power of photography in social media, these photo challenges highlight the creativity and speed that can be achieved with the compact and portable Canon EOS M5 Digital Camera. Throughout the campaign, Jamie and each participating photographer will be tagged and challenged by another influencer in the #TagYoureItprogram to complete their photo challenge within 24-hours. The game of #TagYoureIt continues when the previous individual tags the next participant on Instagram.

“The Canon EOS M5 Digital Camera is the perfect creative tool for the spontaneous nature of these photo challenges,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We hope that the photographic journey started by these influencers through #TagYoureIt lives on through their fans and followers who we hope are inspired by these photo challenges.”

A sample #TagYoureIt challenge could include creating and capturing a sample outfit inspired by the year you were born or making something inedible look edible and delicious.

"I’m honored to kick off the #TagYoureIt campaign as it really resonates with how I challenge myself every day to see the world differently,” said Jamie Chung. “I love to have fun with my looks and no matter what bag I’m wearing, the Canon EOS M5 is a great camera to pack when shooting for my channel since it’s lightweight and compact but still powerful.”

Canon announces winner for New Cosmos of Photography 2016 photo competition

Canon announces winner for New Cosmos of Photography 2016 photo competition
Canon announces the Grand Prize winner for its New Cosmos of Photography 2016 (39th edition) photo competition

TOKYO, November 14, 2016—Ms. Kim Sajik, for her work "Story," was declared the Grand Prize winner of Canon’s New Cosmos of Photography 2016 (39th edition) photo competition at a public meeting of the Grand Prize selection committee held at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum on Friday, November 11.

The New Cosmos of Photography accepted entries for the 2016 competition from April 20 to June 15. In addition to conventional photo prints, the range of eligible entries was expanded last year to include online digital works (stills and videos), attracting a record 1,723 submissions from individuals and groups both inside and outside Japan. From those entrants seven Excellence Award winners and 14 Honorable Mention Award winners were selected by the Excellence Award Selection Committee. The Excellence Award winners, as Grand Prize candidates, attended a public meeting of the Grand Prize selection committee held on November 11. Each candidate gave a presentation and faced questioning by the selection committee, after which the committee convened and chose Ms. Kim as the Grand Prize winner.

In addition to ¥1 million (approx. US$ 9,550) in prize money, Ms. Kim was awarded a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and EF24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens kit and the right to hold an exhibit of new work at the New Cosmos of Photography 2017 Tokyo Exhibition to be held in fall of next year. Details of the Grand Prize public selection committee meeting will be made available on the New Cosmos of Photography website in mid-January 2017.

The New Cosmos of Photography 2016 Tokyo Exhibition of Excellence Award winners, including Grand Prize winner Ms. Kim, and Honorable Mention Award winners will continue until November 20 at the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum.

The New Cosmos of Photography is Canon’s cultural support project to discover, nurture, and support new photographers who pursue new possibilities in creative photographic expression. The annual contest, launched in 1991, has been open to the public regardless of the age or nationality of entrants or the number or format of entered works. As such, the contest encourages the creation of original works that push the boundaries of photography’s potential and systematically assists and nurtures award winners through exhibitions and published collections of their winning works as well as through publicity on the New Cosmos of Photography website. To date, the New Cosmos of Photography contest has accepted 25,701 entries from both individuals and groups, and has turned out a great number of outstanding photographers who are enjoying widespread success around the world. As a result, the contest has come to be regarded today as a gateway to success for new photographers.

About the winning entry
On the concept of her submission, Ms. Kim said, " 'Where am I from?' I asked myself. As a Korean residing in Japan, I didn't know. From there, I started searching for my identity in the traditions of my people. In doing that, I didn't expect to find any new answers, but instead discover 'something' I already knew. This 'something' is all of the connections in me that give rise to a story."

Comments from the Grand Prize winner

After receiving the award, Ms. Kim revealed, "The work that I submitted this time is a concept I have been planning for ten years, so it was slow to take shape. It’s a work where I was able to face my true feelings upfront, without lying to myself. I’m happy that those feelings were carried through in my submission. I’d like to thank the people who looked at my work, and all the people who have been cheering me on until now."

Comments from the selection committee
At a public meeting of the Grand Prize selection committee, Ms. Kim was chosen as the Grand Prize winner. The following is a comment from Mr. Osamu James Nakagawa, a member of the selection committee who selected Ms. Kim’s work at the Excellence Award selection stage: "This time Ms. Kim’s selection for the Grand Prize was unanimous. With this entry she was clearly able to show us what lies at the core of why she makes art. It really conveys what it’s like to look at things from an 'in-between' point of view. I want her to continue producing excellent work that shines a light on Japan’s minority problem."
