    Sponsored by Canon, the New Cosmos of Photography contest aims to discover, nurture, and support talented new photographers attempting to redefine the boundaries of creative photographic expression.

    The contest encourages creative endeavours that pursue original, unfettered photographic expressions and push the possibilities of photography.

    Photographic works are defined as image data taken with any device, including smartphones and digital cameras, capable of taking still images or videos. Photographic works that have been processed or manipulated with camera apps, image editing apps, or other software are acceptable. Both color and black and white works are accepted. Images taken with film cameras and converted to image data with a scanner are acceptable as well.

    Both individuals and groups may enter the contest. Entry by groups, however, is restricted to groups that plan to continue activities as a group in the future.

    Each applicant (individual or group) may enter only one work. The same person may not enter simultaneously as an individual and a group.

    The image size should be 1200 x 1600 pixels or larger (recommended). The recommended file format is JPEG with a resolution of 72 dpi. The color space standard used in the judging process is sRGB.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    Open to both professional and amateur photographers. There are no restrictions on nationality, age and gender. Persons under the age of 16 cannot enter the contest without the consent of a parent or guardian.
