The Japan Media Arts Festival is a comprehensive festival of Media Arts that honors outstanding works in the four divisions of Art, Entertainment, Animation, and Manga, as well as providing an opportunity to appreciate works that have won awards. Since its start in 1997, the festival has given awards to art works of high artistry and creativity, while holding Exhibition of Award-winning Works in addition to other events, such as symposiums, screenings, and showcases. At the 15th festival last year, we received the most entries since the start of the festival, with 2,714 entries of work from 57 countries and regions from around the world. In this way, the Japan Media Arts Festival continues to evolve in becoming a well-established annual international festival.
For the 16th festival in 2013, applications will be accepted from July 12, 2012. The Exhibition of approximately 150 Award-winning and Jury Selected Works will be held at The National Art Center, Tokyo from February 13 to February 24, 2013.
To make the festival a great opportunity to give visitors a wide-ranging view of works in the field of contemporary media arts, the 16th festival will collaborate with both the facilities and other events relating to media arts through related national and global projects of the Japan Media Arts Festival. Through these efforts, the festival aims to continuously strive to be ahead of one’s time.
