For some, the human condition is interwoven with notions of ethical rights and wrongs; for others, it represents the painful knowledge of our mortality and the thirst for meaning in that which will inevitably be lost. Now in its third edition, the Tokyo International Photography Competition is inviting photographers worldwide to interpret the theme of the human condition.

With an expected audience of over 1.5 million people, The Fence provides unprecedented visibility and opportunities for photographers, so don’t miss out—submit here.
