Japan Media Arts Festival, Japan
The 18th Japan Media Arts Festival is on in Tokyo 4-15 February. The festival includes the Exhibition of Award-winning Works, a reflection of the “here and now” of Media Arts, and a concurrent program of 150 events.
The Japan Media Arts Festival is a comprehensive festival of Media Arts (Media Geijutsu) 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.
The exhibition presents the Award-winning Works from the four divisions of Art, Entertainment, Animation and Manga, chosen by the jury from among a record number of 3,853 entries from 71 countries and regions. The winners of Special Achievement Awards will also be shown. The Award-winning Works, selected after a rigorous judging process, reflect the most recent trends in their respective fields.
