Notification of delay in delivery of 80th International Photo Salon prize medals
April 27, 2020
The novel coronavirus pandemic has caused many countries to take measures such as stopping acceptance of inbound postal items as well as considerable suspension and reduction of flights from/to Japan. Accordingly, postal transportation performance has significantly declined. Therefore, acceptance of international mail items, mainly EMS and parcel-post/letter-post items by air and SAL, are temporarily suspended.
Prize medals which could not be dispatched to their destinations have returned from the delivery offices to the senders in order. We shipped all medals and prizes in early April, but about 80% of them were returned to us. The returned medal will be re-shipped after Coronavirus has settled down and international mail has resumed.
We are very sorry to keep you waiting.
Thank you for your understanding.
