Agency for Cultural Affairs Reinstates Support for Nitten

years:September 2015

The Agency for Cultural Affairs has decided to reinstate support for the Nitten exhibition, which is run by the Nitten, in the fiscal year 2015 and to reintroduce the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Award, following the revelations of organizational corruption in the award of the Calligraphy section in 2013. The Agency also informed the Japan Art Academy that the selection process should return to normal from the fiscal year 2015 though it had requested that former Nitten judges be excluded from the candidate pool of new members.
