Miki Jun Award is an annual award given by Nikon for the best photo show at the Nikon Salon by an artist under 35 years old. The Miki Jun Award was established in 1999 by the Selection Committee of the Nikon Salon. It is named after the documentary photographer Miki Jun.[1]


The prize consists of the "Infinity" trophy, by Asahiko Yamada; ¥300,000; and a Nikon D300s with zoom lens.
