The Japan Media Arts Festival Executive Committee is now accepting entries for the 22nd Japan Media Arts Festival. All artists around the world, without distinction as to professional, amateur, independent, or commerical, are invited to submit their works to the four divisions: Art, Entertainment, Animation, and Manga.
Eligible works are completed or exhibited within a year before the deadline (October 6, 2017 - October 5, 2018).
From each division, the jury commitee will select winners of the Grand Prizes, Excellence Awards, and New Face Awards. All awards including Special Achievement Awards and Jury Selections will be announced in March 2019. Each of the winners from the four divisions will receive a trophy and prize money up to 1,000,000 yen, and also win an opportunity to present their works at the Exhibition of Award-winning Works in Tokyo in June 2019.
