Stuart Poore, Director of Sustainability at Canon Europe said: “The Miraisha programme truly embodies our corporate philosophy of Kyosei: living and working together for the common good. In just two years, it has already achieved impressive results and had a major impact on the lives and businesses of participants; more than 140 photographers have received work with a paid commission and more than 20 have received awards and recognition for their work.”
