"Worry For The Fruit The Birds Won’t Eat is an exploration into the world of the unseen through the optics of light, chemical interaction and the experiment of how to photograph something invisible to the naked eye.
Each photograph has been taken over five times, represented and rephotographed under plates of glass, left out to catch the skin and hair particles of those who pass through the spaces in which they lay. Negatives are sunk in polluted water and dried, the microbes eating away at the negative itself, making the invisible visible. This process creates a galaxy like impression on the film, another world is created. This process has revealed the traces of the invisible, the memory of the past and the presence of the photographer, subject and light."
On our 10th anniversary, KLPA2018 will be awarding our highest prizemoney of $5,000, The Grand Prize, to one photographer in either the Single Images or PhotoStory category, as selected by our panel of judges. Enter now at www.klphotoawards.com

"Japan entered a period of rapid economic growth after the war, the population of Tokyo which became the center of the economy increased significantly. For this reason, a huge estate that has 300,000 people living in it was planned, and the construction of "Tama New Town" in the western part of Tokyo began in the 1960s. At the time, the housing complex was a modern dream of an idyllic life. Today's aging populuation is the biggest challenge. Here, I think the problems of modern Japan are condensed."
We are featuring entries that have caught our team's eyes.
"Mother explores the emotional and psychological terrain surrounding the ending of relationships and the loss of personal identity. As a victim of a tattered family scarred by emotional trauma, I use photography as a means to reconnect with my mother and respond to a relationship that was non-existent for over two decades."
To celebrate KLPA's 10th Anniversary, and to acknowledge the support we receive from our followers over the years, we are awarding a special GRAND PRIZE of $5,000 to one ultimate photographer - our highest prize money to be awarded - in addition to our unique commissioned trophies, extended exposure and printed features by our media partners.
In recognising diversity and rewarding effort, this edition of KLPA chooses specifically to highlight the importance of good storytelling in photography, within the contemporary portraiture genre where so many emerging photographers have been photographing recently - project work or the photo story. Special emphasis will also be given to photographers who push the boundaries of conventionality, to producing imaginative, fresh, visually arresting portraits and personally driven and well-researched stories.
KLPA2018 will be a completely OPEN contest - with no theme to restrict your creativity, no boundaries to hold you back.
WHY ENTER? - Your work will be seen by our select panel of judges, who are committed to promoting and sharing new photography within their related industries, and our finalists will also be featured by our media partners through online portals, print and social media, as well as in future festivals.
