*【What is Fukuoka Prize?】*
The Fukuoka Prize was established by Fukuoka City, Japan, in 1990 as an
award presented annually to honor the outstanding work of individuals,
groups and organizations to preserve and promote the unique and diverse
cultures of Asia. The Prize aims to foster and increase awareness of the
value of Asian cultures, and to institute a broad framework for exchange
and learning among the people of Asia.  ( http://fukuoka-prize.org/en/ )
