We have just finished reviewing 295 applications.
Six finalists will be selected from this pool.
We had a meeting yesterday with the project owner, the manager of Hirono Town, and he reaffirmed that we will choose the artists based on their talent, potential, and future prospects.
The finalists will be chosen on November 5, Japan time.
We will inform you by email ASAP.
Finalists and invited artists will be announced on the evening of November 9 or the morning of November 10 (Japan time).
Once again, thank you very much!
