Following careful consideration, submitted artwork will be selected for the following prizes: the Gold Prize, the Environment Minister’s Prize, the Silver Prize, the Bronze Prize, the NICKER COLOUR Prize, Honorable Mention, and the Organization Award. Winners will receive prizes that include a trip to Yakushima, a Natural World Heritage site.*1 In addition, all applicants will also receive an original canvas pouch.
Through such CSR activities, our company aims to contribute to the formation of an environmentally conscious society. We look forward to seeing your submissions.
