CWAJ established the Young Printmaker Award in 2005 as part of the 50th Print Show celebration to encourage the development of young artists. Eligible applicants are the artists selected at the Annual Exhibition of the Japan Society of Printmaking. Selected on the criteria of a project proposal, artistic potential and creativity, the recipient is expected to use the cash award of 500,000 yen within one year for a specific project.


In addition, the recipient has an opportunity to exhibit the award print at the CWAJ Print Show and is also allowed to exhibit a new print three years after receiving the Award. To our great pleasure, many of the past YPA recipients are flourishing in the printmaking world.
