Photo Contest & Galleries

"Hanazono" by Jennifer Wright (2010)


The Center for Japanese Studies Photo Contest began in 2009 as a project that originally aimed to share the experiences of our students who have traveled, researched, and studied in Japan. Collectively, these photographs highlight the richness and diversity of Japanese society, helping to deepen the awareness and understanding of Japan and its people. Teachers and parents are encouraged to use these photographs as teaching instruments within their classrooms and homes.

2012 Photo Contest

The last contest held was in 2012. Winning photographs along with all photo submissions are available for viewing in the 2012 Photo Gallery.
