Prix Pictet Japan Award
The third cycle of the Prix Pictet Japan Award takes the theme of Fire & Water. Photographers were nominated by a global network of nominators and after a rich debate the jury arrived at a final shortlist. On 16 December 2023, an award of ¥1,000,000 will be presented to the photographer who, in the opinion of the independent jury, has produced a series of work that is both artistically outstanding and presents a compelling narrative related to the theme.
The two previous winners of the Japan Award are Kikuchi Tomoko (2015) and Shiga Lieko (2017).
The portfolios of the eight shortlisted artists will be presented in a finalist’s exhibition at the TOP Museum, Tokyo, from 17 December 2022 – 22 January 2023.
