    Copic Award is an international competition based on the concept of connecting with Copic artists around the world. All entries will be showcased in an online gallery, allowing participants to share their work with a wide audience and to view the work of other participants from different parts of the world.

    There are no categories nor specific theme. The Award has been purposely kept this broad to encourage imagination.

    The size of the artwork should be within L17″ x W12″x H12″ (L420mm x W297mm x H300mm) with the maximum weight of 11lbs (5kg). Each entry is limited to artworks that have not already been made public either through another competition or exhibition (excluding personal exhibitions or one’s own social media pages).

    This year’s panel of judges includes manga artist Mr Ito Ogure (also known by the name Oh! Great), designer Mr Kota Nezu, illustrator Ms Chiaki Harada, curator Ms Tomoko Yabumae (from the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo), and art director Mr Kei Matsushita.

    There is no entry fee.


    Open to anyone worldwide. Artworks must have been created using Copic products. There are no restrictions for nationality, age, experience, area of residence, etc.


    In addition to the Grand Prize, the Judges' Award, and the Future Generation Art Prize: Grand Prize, there are special prizes such as the Craft Award or Social Media Award. This year, there will be new prizes available, including the "Regional Award" and many more. The winner of the Grand Prize will receive a cash prize of 3,000 USD and a luxurious set of art materials, including a complete set of 358 colors of Copic Sketch.

    The "Future Generation Art Prize" is a special prize selected from applicants 18 years of age or younger at the time of entry, and 100 winners will receive a special edition Copic set.
