We received the following announcement from Harry van der Krogt of the European Go Center
Announcement of the World Wide Iwamoto Awards 2015
The European Go Centre is happy to announce the World Wide Iwamoto Awards. In succession to the European editions in 2001, 2003, 2007 and 2012, the Iwamoto Awards now go global. Thanks to internet and social media, the world has become smaller, so we think it is time to invite people on a global scale to submit Go promotion projects.
These projects are collected in our public database. With this information everybody who is involved in the promotion of Go can find new ideas and inspiration for their own projects. You can have a look at our website at http://go-centre.nl/wp/home/iwamoto-awards/iwamoto-award-entries to see the submissions of previous editions of the European Iwamoto Awards.
The European Iwamoto Awards were much appreciated by the contributors of the projects, the EGF and the Nihon Ki-in. Therefore we want to extend the project and improve some features.
An international jury, with representatives from all continents will judge the entries. The best project will be awarded € 1.000 , two runners-up will both receive € 500.
You can find all details and the criteria for submitting projects on our website at: http://go-centre.nl/wp/26457/
African candidates are encouraged to submit proposals.
