About the Fukuoka Prize#

The Fukuoka Prize is awarded annually to honor the outstanding work of individuals, groups and organizations in the field of research and arts and culture.

The prize was established in 1990 by Fukuoka City, which has played a significant role as Japan’s gateway for exchanges with the rest of the Asian region since ancient times. The prize which celebrates its 32nd anniversary this year, aims to foster and increase awareness of the value of Asian cultures, and to establish foundations from which people of Asia can learn and share with one another.

It has so far been presented to 118 figures who lead their respective fields. Past laureates include Professor Muhammad Yunus from Bangladesh, who also received the Nobel Peace Prize; and Dr. Nakamura Tetsu from Japan, who took the lead in medical services, land reclamation and social welfare for the sick and vulnerable in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
