About the cancellation of the International Filter Photo Contest 2020

Jun 29, 2020

Kenko Tokina Co., Ltd. (President: Toru Yamanaka) company, being the prospect of the end of the corona virus infection still unclear, and taking into account that there might not be the conditions for photographic activities as expected, decided to cancel the new edition of the International Filter Photo Contest planned for this 2020 year.

As this year's edition would have coincided with the 10th anniversary of the contest since its inauguration in 2009, by all means we planned an exciting edition but, as things never go as expected in such a situation, it was unavoidable for us to arrive at the final decision of cancelling the contest for the current year.

As for future editions, we will make an announcement in due time after careful consideration and depending on future conditions.

Thank you for your understanding and continuous support.
