Japan’s only anime x different industry collaboration award event “Animono Zukuri Award” announced co-sponsorship with “Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2021 (Kyo Mafu)” to be held in September 2021. In addition to the anime commercials, collaborations, and design departments, a new “regional revitalization department” has been established, and entry acceptance will begin on May 17.

The “Animono Zukuri Award”, started in 2017 as an award to recognize these efforts, continues to be a hit with animated movies and TV anime series, and in recent years there has been an increasing number of collaboration cases between general companies and anime, manga, and characters being used for marketing.
More than 300 works have been submitted so far, and many excellent prize-winning works have been selected at the “Animono Zukuri Awards” held three times in the past.

The event was postponed last year due to the spreading of the novel coronavirus, but it will be held this year and co-sponsored with “Kyo Mafu” as the “1st Kyoto Animono Zukuri Award” at the “Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2021 (Kyo Mafu)”, which will be held in Kyoto City in September. Furthermore, from this year, 7 categories, including 6 categories such as animation CM, content collaboration, craft design category, and a new “regional revitalization category” with the theme of “regional revitalization x anime” have been selected.
In addition, the selection committee chairman Natsuno Takeshi and other selection committee members who have a deep knowledge of anime, manga, characters, and games have been appointed.

Entries for the “1st Kyoto Animation Monozukuri Award” will be accepted from May 17 to June 30, and the Grand Prix and prize-winning works of each category will be announced and the award ceremony will be held at “Kyoto Mafu” held in mid-September. The schedule is under development.

Animono Zukuri Award Executive Committee
Due to the spreading of the novel coronavirus, we postponed the “4th Animono Zukuri Award” last year, but this year, we have obtained cooperation from the “Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2021”, a comprehensive trade fair for content centered on manga and anime. With the cooperation of “Kyoto Mafu”, the “Kyoto Animono Zukuri Award” will be held in September at the same place.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused to the companies and related parties who entered last year’s “4th Ani Monozukuri Award”, but we hope that you will continue to support this award. Thank you for your consideration.

In addition, the works that have already been submitted will be considered as entry works for the “Kyoto Animobi Zukuri Award”. We will contact each company individually, but if you have any questions, please contact the secretariat.
