11th Entertainment Division Critiques
[Critique by work category] Visual Image
Innovativeness became one of the key criteria for judgment during the screening sessions for the Entertainment Division this year. It is thought that this also served as an occasion during which to consider what kinds of new forms of visual expression are now possible. The Japan Media Arts Festival is unique in that it judges a wide variety of entertainment works, such as visual images, games, websites, and toys, but all of which can be said to belong to the ' Entertainment' genre; it is one of the benefits of this festival that it allows us to discover new value in artwork.
