Japan Media Arts Festival

The Japan Media Arts Festival
Awarded for "Outstanding works in the four divisions of Art, Entertainment, Animation, and Manga"
Country  Japan
Presented by Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan
First awarded 1997
Official website [1]

The Japan Media Arts Festival is an annual festival held by Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs since 1997. The festival for a nominal year was usually held during February or March next year, rather than at the end of the nominal year. For instance, the 2010 Japan Media Arts Festival, where award-winning works for Year 2010 were exhibited or screened, was actually held in February, 2011.

During the festival, awards are given in four categories: Art (formerly called Non-Interactive Digital Art), Entertainment (formerly called Interactive Art; including video games and websites), Animation, and Manga. Within each category, one Grand Prize, four Excellence Prizes, and (since 2002) one Encouragement Prize are awarded. These are sometimes also called Japan Media Arts Awards. The Awards are considered the most prestigious awards in the field of art, entertainment, animation, and manga.
