The Kanagawa Culture Award / Sports Award has been co-sponsored by Kanagawa Prefecture and Kanagawa Shimbun since 1952. Every year, it strives to improve and develop the culture of Kanagawa, and for individuals or groups whose achievements are remarkable. The "Kanagawa Culture Award" is presented, and the "Kanagawa Sports Award" is presented to individuals or groups who have made outstanding achievements in sports. In addition, since the 50th edition, the "Kanagawa Culture Award Future Award" has been presented every year to younger generation individuals (or groups) who are highly expected to play an active role in the future.

The presentation ceremony was held at the Kanagawa Prefectural Office on Tuesday, November 3rd, "Culture Day". This year, in order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection, we held the event on a smaller scale, such as by inviting only those involved.
