The JAPAN PRIZE was established in 1965 by NHK, Japan’s public broadcaster. Its aim is to improve the quality of educational programs around the world and contribute to the development and fostering international understanding. In 2003, The JAPAN PRIZE established the Proposal Division which helps to support production of TV programs for countries and regions in need. Also, in 2008 it evolved into an international contest for educational media for all kinds of audio visual materials to respond to rapid changes in the new media landscape.
