The 21st Japan Media Arts Festival’s Award-winning Works and Special Achievement Awards have been chosen.
For the 21st Japan Media Arts Festival, we received a number of 4,192 works from a record 98 countries
After a rigorous review by the jury, each division selected winners of the prizes（Grand Prize,
Excellence Award, and New Face Award）. Also, the winners of the Special Achievement Award which
commends those who have made exceptional contributions to the field of Media Arts were decided as well.
Two exceptional works from the Animation Division are awarded the Grand Prize this year; a delightful
surprise that last happened 16 years ago at the 5th Festival held in 2001.
