About the Project to Support the Nurturing of Media Arts Creators
It is an initiative by the Agency for Cultural Affairs that provides practical support to young artists for their creative activities, and also invites artists from overseas for an artist in residence program.

Creative Support for Young Japanese Creators offers various forms of support for young artists whose works have won awards or have been selected for Jury Selections in the Japan Media Arts Festival, including production fees, specialist advice, technical support as well as opportunities to present development results, so that aspiring artists can develop their ideas into actual works.

Also, the Residency Program for Overseas Media Arts Creators invites young artists around the world for an artist in residence program, allows them to experience Japanese creative culture and provides an opportunity to interact with Japanese creators to promote international exchange.
