The Japan Fine Arts Exhibition 日展, Nitten Nihon bijutsu tenrankai claims to be the largest combined art exhibition of its kind in the world, attracting a great number of fans and art critics The exhibition consists five art categories: Nihonga and Western Style Painting, Sculpture, Crafts and Calligraphy During each exhibition, works of the great masters are shown alongside works of the new but talented artists

The Japan Fine Arts Exhibition decided not to award any of the top prizes in any of the 5 sections for 2013, following the revelation of fraudulent judging in the calligraphy section of the fiscal 2009 show It was the first time since 1958, when the organization became a nonprofit corporation, that none of the prizes were awarded
