This year’s theme is “Japan, New York, and Parade.”

Japan Day Art Contest began in 2012 when they first invited the public to submit artwork to create official posters, flyers, and programs. The contest resulted in many splendid entries of artwork. Therefore, they decided to make the art contest an important element of Japan Day @ Central Park.

Japan Day is accepting submissions for the official image and design for the upcoming event. The chosen artwork will be used for the event’s collateral materials including official poster, official program, and T-shirt. The winner will receive a round-trip economy-class tickets to Japan for two, provided by ANA/ All Nippon Airways and Brand Watches by Citizen Watch America.

About Japan Day

The year 2022 marks the 150th anniversary of the visit of the Japanese mission led by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Iwakura Tomomi in 1872. The Iwakura Mission’s visit led to the remarkable development of Japan-US relations including the establishment of the Consulate of Japan in New York in the same year. The purpose of the Japan Parade is to promote the country’s culture and the Japan-US friendship in a new way on this milestone anniversary to hand over the baton to the next generation.
