Event Description

The Japan Media Arts Festival is a comprehensive festival of Media Arts that honors outstanding works from a diverse range of media - from animation and comics to media art and games.
The festival gives awards in each of its four divisions: Art, Entertainment, Animation, and Manga. It also provides a platform for appreciation of the award-winning and other notable works. Since its inception in 1997, the festival has recognized significant works of high artistry and creativity, and in addition to a yearly Exhibition of Award-winning Works has held other events, such as symposiums, screenings, and showcases. Last year, the 18th Festival received of 3,853 works from 71 countries and regions around the world, demonstrating its continuing evolution as an established annual international festival. Award-winning works are exhibited both within Japan and abroad through various projects and events organized by The Agency of Cultural Affairs which aims to develop and promote the creation of Media Arts by focusing primarily on the new generation of artists understanding/awareness/ appreciation of Media Arts.

We begin the 19th Festival on Tuesday, July 7, 2015 with our call for entries. Entries are sought from professional, amateur, independent and commercial creators across the globe. Works completed or released between Wednesday, September 3, 2014 and Wednesday, September 9, 2015 are eligible for entry in the four divisions - Art, Entertainment, Animation and Manga.
Through a rigorous judging process for each division, Award-winning Works will then be selected based on their artistic quality and creativity. In late November, we will announce the winners of the Grand Prizes, Excellence Awards, New Face Awards and Special Achievement Awards, as well as other Jury Selections. Award- winners will receive prizes from the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
