Summary of how my photos of Tanagura Town have been used (As of March 2018)

I find it very important to reflect on the past like this because it changed my mind and made me believe that the paddy fields of Yashirogawa District is rather more popular than the Weeping Sakura tree of Hanazono.

 

 

As a Tanagura Supporters' Ambassador, Entry to the tanagura Town tourism photo contest is my essential objective every year so that I support local revitalization of Tanagura Town, Fukushima Prefecture. While I usually do not participate in any photo contests, thry are exceptional because they match my belief to influence and move people through photography on the context of local revitalization.

Following the two awards in 2015 won by the photos titled "When the sunshine through the foliage spread among the mist" and "This is why Yashiro rice is delicious!", I won the Evening Tanagura Newspaper Company prize by "Competing with the Lanterns" in 2017. Although I had recognized that the former two photos have been used in various places, what I did for them was only to share them on SNS when I recognized them.

I decided to summarize how my photos have been used because this process is very important in reflecting on how I have contributed to Tanagura Town as a Tanagura Supporters' Ambassador. It must be a hard work, but a scheduled termination of the term as the ambassador at the end of this month made me go forward. Please enjoy the photos.

And my review

While the photo of the Weeping Sakura tree of Hanazono appears a lot, the photo of the paddy fields of Yashirogawa District appears much more thanks to the collaboration with Yashiro Rice and Furusato Tax, I noticed.

I reckon that there must be few photos which have been used on media more often than these two because there are 10-20 photos winning awards every year. Although I wonder how they can use "Competing with the lanters" winning the Evening Tanagura Newspaper Company Award because this photo represents a very rare situation, I wisht that they can in any case.
