The Winners of the 22nd Fukuoka Asian Cultural Prizes 2011!

Archive Library-image1

As the Japanese gateway to the Asian continent, Fukuoka has played a pivotal role in cultural exchanges and interactions with the various Asian regions through the ages. Building on these attributes, the Fukuoka Asian Culture Awards were established in 1990 in order to contribute to peace and the creation of a broad cultural base, in addition to the mutual understanding and promotion of the superb cultures of the Asian region.
This year we welcome the 22nd edition of the Fukuoka Asian Culture Awards with the selection of three award winners in a class of their own. Official functions will take place in September and will include an awards ceremony and public forums. We are currently accepting registrations for these events at our home page. Please join us on this occasion.
