About the event

The Kogei World Competition in Kanazawa is an international competition that showcases new innovations in craft (kogei). The competition calls for entries that utilize craft techniques to create expressive works of art characterized by outstanding concepts or ideas. The theme for the competition is “Craft Visions.” We look forward to works that discerningly capture the essence of contemporary expression from the perspective of craft. The competition will encourage the bold participation of young artists by newly offering a Next Generation Award for entrants under 35. Applicable genres and materials include ceramics, metal, textiles, lacquer, dolls, wood, bamboo, glass, leather, enamel, paper, and others. We look forward to receiving entries that usher in a new era.
