"ECHO, Let’s look at the traces we leave and the echoes in our world."

The KYOTOGRAPHIE School Competition 2021 was open to all schools in Kansai, and to students from grade 1 to 8.
After learning the base of photography using our school tutorial, children were invited to explore their own interpretation of the word «ECHO» in a photograph.
We received 463 pictures from local and international schools and selected 51 for the exhibition (1-4 in each class).

We want to express our deepest thanks to all the teachers who, despite the regulations and restrictions link to the sanitary situation, have continued to teach photography, making everything possible for their class to be part of the competition.
