The Prix Pictet Japan Award was created to celebrate early to mid-career Japanese photographers whose work carries strong messages on global sustainability. Supported by the Purnier Foundation the Prix Pictet inaugurated this special prize in 2015 in recognition of Japan’s status as one of the great centres of world photography. The Prix Pictet Japan Award is an award 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 selected theme. The two previous winners of the Japan Award are Kikuchi Tomoko (2015) and Shiga Lieko (2017).
