2020 Young Printmaker Award
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.
CWAJ現代版画展が50周年を迎えた2005年に、版画界への謝意と未 来を担う若い版画家への期待をこめて、ヤング・プリントメーカー賞を創設 しました。応募資格があるのは、版画学会主催の全国大学版画展の前 年度優秀賞受賞者です。受賞作を含めた数点の作品と賞金活用の企 画案をもとに、将来性と独創性に重点を置いて審査し、毎年1名に賞金 50万円を授与しています。
I received the Young Printmaker Award in the midst of the COVID pandemic and I had no prospects of making a living. I was able to purchase a press machine with the award money and could conduct research for my production and thesis. It is also very encouraging to have the opportunity to exhibit my work at the CWAJ Print Show three years after winning the prize.
I was inspired to create night scenes when an acquaintance said to me, “It’s hard to pass by the highway near my ex-girlfriend’s house.”I realized that the same view can look different depending on the memories of the time and who you are with. I have experienced many things thanks to this award. The night views I saw three years ago and the ones I see now seem to have changed.
