Our foundation selects researchers who are conducting or planning research, studies, or actual practices and activities related to traditional woodcut printing techniques in the five categories of Research, Techniques, Drawings, Materials and Publicity and provides subsidies, the amount of which is determined each year.

Application guidelines for subsidies are now available

The Adachi Contemporary Ukiyo-e Award

The Adachi Contemporary Ukiyo-e Award is organized as part of the foundation’s subsidies projects in the category of Drawings (drawings that woodcut prints are based on). The contest for the best drawing is open to the public and financial incentives are given to two to five winners each year. In addition, woodcut prints based on the awarded works are produced and unveiled.
