《Open Call》The 10th International Projection Mapping Competition【1minute Projection Mapping in TOKYO 】

~Entry for participating creators is now open!~

1minute Projection Mapping in TOKYO will be held again this year.
This is an international competition planned by Projection Mapping Association of Japan for competing projection mapping works of 1 minute to 1 minute and 59 seconds.
Creators from all over the world are invited to submit their video works. 

This year’s competition will mark the 10th anniversary. The theme of this memorable edition is, 

LIFE / 命・暮らし・人生

The development of modern technology has enabled us to overcome many obstacles, increase our life expectancy, and change the way we work and live.
On the other hand, however, the world is still in the grip of sad news as another conflict has erupted this year, in addition to the still-unresolved COVID-19 outbreak.

Our views of life, death, and work style have changed dramatically.

In an era when people’s minds are shaken both mentally and physically, we are looking for works that include messages, visions, and questions about “LIFE” as envisioned by each creator.
