AIR in Kyoto 2018 and EWAAC in Kyoto 2018

Entry deadline : 10 March, 2017

Because foreign artists are selected for AIR in Kyoto or exhibitor for EWAEE in Kyoto, they need time to prepare by getting permission for a long holiday from their employers or purchasing discount return air ticket in off peak season or avoid to make any commitment in this period etc so we will call and select artists early which will enable them to make their plan in advance. So if you take membership now you can apply for four events in Kyoto (Air 2017 / 2018 and EWAEE 2017 and EWAAC 2018) and you will have better opportunity to be selected. All members can enter up to three works for free. If you are selected, then discounted exhibition fees apply.  However, if you are not selected you do not have to pay any for exhibition fees.  All finalists for EWAAC London will not need to pay any exhibition fees because our sponsor will pay.

Important: From 2018, applications for artists for AIR in Kyoto and EWAAC in Kyoto will be organized at the same time and all residents for AIR in Kyoto will be selected from entrants of EWAAC.
