      【What is Fukuoka Prize?】

      The Fukuoka Prize was established by Fukuoka City, Japan, in 1990 as an award presented annually to honor the outstanding work of individuals, groups and organizations to preserve and promote the unique and diverse cultures of Asia. The Prize aims to foster and increase awareness of the value of Asian cultures, and to institute a broad framework for exchange and learning among the people of Asia.  ( http://fukuoka-prize.org/en/ )
