began when GATSBY, a men's cosmetics brand enlarging
its market share in Asia, wanted to support and encourage young people.
The awards, which are among the largest of the kind in Asia, seeks to
expand awareness of creative work being produced by the students who
apply. The awards process not only shares the work of young people both
from within Japan and throughout the rest of Asia, whose abundantly
powerful creativity and freedom of expression are already beacons to the
world, but also creates a forum for these students to know one another
and begin to collaborate.

Submissions are open to any novice artist, hoping to become a creative
or performance professional, and with an interest in and passion for
creation and expression.

There will be five entry categories for this 13th annual
event. Finalists will be invited to join the ceremonies in Tokyo's
Shibuya, in March of 2019, for the GATSBY CREATIVE AWARDS 13th FINAL.
That event will afford students with opportunities to interact at the
international level, through the medium of their creativity.
