THEME SUMMARY

At this time, when everything is constantly changing, how do you see the “now”?
This word, “now”, is defined as anything that falls between the past and the future. It may be the fleeting moment in your everyday life, the newest items, events, a state of mind or emotion. It can be understood in many ways. We would like you to show us your “now” interpreted through photography.
[Submission Period] from August 1 to September 30
