The contents of “Japan Grand Prix 2023” are the following two:
1) Free Sketch Competition

1) Concerning Free Sketch Competition
During the competition, the competitors become each other’s models.
The artworks are to be displayed on the walls on which each individual is given their own area.
On the final day when all the drawings are exhibited, the competitors take a vote on whose artwork is the best.

The choice of models is up to the competitor.
It is up to you to draw from live, from photo, both is allowed.
The choice of drawing materials is also up to the artist.
However, the materials should be contained within the space each individual is given.
The competitor can draw as many as one desires.
For example, a one-big drawing or two will suffice.
Numbers of small drawings are also acceptable.
Combination of big drawings and small drawings is fine as well.


Basically, you are free to use any materials you like, but as a rule, we prohibit the use of materials that emit a strong odor (oil paints, turpentine oil, paint or spray that smells strongly of paint thinner, etc.) since the rooms are indoors. If you wish to use painting materials that may stain the floor, please be sure to prepare your own sheets or other protective measures.
*If you wish to use pastels, pencils, or other materials that can be sprayed on a painting to fix it to the screen, please do so outdoors.
