The Museum of Arts and Crafts ITAMI endeavors to broaden the culture of jewellery, where it houses ITAMI College of Jewellery that aims to foster professional jewellery artists, besides holding numerous jewellery exhibitions.

As a result of such effort, the recognition of ITAMI = jewellery is now widely spread not only in Japan but also abroad. The organizers received 1,132 pieces of works from 339 artists including 138 applicants from 19 countries, resulting to 97 selected artists out of which 8 had received prizes after strict examination.

Among those from diverse backgrounds, the works awarded with prizes as well as those selected demonstrate careful consideration towards the relationship with body, nature and social environment.
