The 19th Japan Media Arts Festival Exhibition of Award-winning Works

Overview

The 19th Japan Media Arts Festival’s Award-winning Works and Special Achievement Awards have been chosen.
The Japan Media Arts Festival is a comprehensive festival of Media Arts (Media Geijutsu) that honors outstanding works in the four divisions of Art, Entertainment, Animation and Manga, as well as providing a platform for appreciation of the Award-winning works.
For the 19th Japan Media Arts Festival, we received a number of 4,417 works from 87 countries and regions. After strict jury screening, every Division selected the winners (the Grand Prize, the Excellence Awards and New Face Awards), as well as the winners of the Special Achievement Awards, those who have made exceptional contributions to the field of Media Arts.
The Exhibition of Award-winning Works will be held from Wednesday, February 3 to Sunday, February 14 at the National Art Center, Tokyo and other venues.
Through this exhibition, film screenings, a program of symposia, talk events and workshops, we gather diverse artists and creators from Japan and abroad, and present myriad forms of contemporary expression.
