The Japan Media Arts Festival is a comprehensive festival of Media Arts (=Media Geijyutsu) 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 15th Festival received a record 2,714 entries from 57 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 promote the creation, development and understanding/awareness/appreciation of Media Arts.
Works must be completed or released between October 5, 2020 and September 3, 2021.
While an unlimited number of entries may be made, the same work may not be entered in multiple divisions.
