KIWA congratulates every prize winner and will notify them individually during the following weeks. Prizes will be sent after the exhibition, March 22 to 27, 2016.
KIWA, of course, thanks every artist who sent in prints for the exhibition. All printmakers will have at least one work in the catalog. The quality of works sent in was extremely high, making the judging day exciting and difficult. We wished we had more prizes to award.
Nevertheless, the exhibition in March will be fantastic, a rarity for international print exhibitions in Japan. Therefore, KIWA is serving the viewing public admirably. KIWA's name is known world-wide, thanks only to the high quality of the woodblock prints artists around the globe are producing.
