This is the seventh year of EWAA competition.  However, originally, the company established in 1996 in London to provide artists from Japan and in the UK with opportunities to exhibit their works together and meet through various events that the company organize. Then more and more artists from Europe, USA and Far East, South East Asian countries wish to join us so that the name was changed to EWACC(East-West Artists and Culture Club, East-West Art Bridge)  and now there is no border of nationality and fields for our artists.
