Winners of the 2nd Hokkaido Digital Photo Contest
What is Hokkaido Digital Photo Contest?
We are looking for works taken in Hokkaido with the theme of "the unique scenery of the land formed by the nature, life and agriculture of Hokkaido", observing the "Biei rules" of Biei's photography manners.
Please strictly keep out of the farms and private lands.
Brochures for the shooting manners and rules have been created and being distributed.
On February 1, 2018, NPO Biei-cho Photo and Video Association, tourism organizations, commerce and industry, agricultural organizations, and agricultural workers came together to launch the `` Biei-machi Shooting Rule Development Committee '' in Biei-cho and started working to create shooting rules.
Various opinions by each stakeholder were exchanged for two months, and the shooting manner rules for maintaining the farming and landscape of Biei on the hill were completed. Afterwards, we have created a brochure to introduce the shooting manner rules and it aims to enlighten everyone who take photos and videos in Biei. Your cooperation is much appreciated. It is also available in multiple languages for the visitors from overseas.
