We put a great amount of effort into this work during our final year at university;
it’s a very emotional reminder of my time as a student.
I’m truly thankful for being given the opportunity for so many people to see it. (Sato)

But I’m even happier that so many people enjoyed seeing something that we had so much fun making.
Thank you very much for this. (Sakamoto)

Matsumoto Toshio Prize
Tohoku University of Art and Design
This is a work that is given significance when it is seen by many people, so to receive this award makes me tremendously happy. As the content and expressions are that of a minority, there were so many barriers, but I am glad that I believed in myself and continued to work on it. I hope that this work serves to help some people, even if it is only a few. Thank you!
Battle for A Sunny Day
Tokyo Zokei University
I made Battle for A Sunny Day as my university graduation project; however, I was unable to find any opportunities to have it screened outside of school, so to have so many people view it here makes me extremely happy!
I’m going to keep persevering under the motto of making movies to entertain people.
Kyoto Seika University
I never dreamed that I would be nominated or win an award at ISCA, so I am very happy to receive the 2nd prize.

I hope to keep making movies in some form in the future, so I would love for you all to watch them.

The rumor of Hamasyuku Coast
Nihon University College of Art
I am truly happy to receive this award. I would like to express my deepest thanks to the teachers, my friends, and my mother, who all supported me. In addition, I have to give my heartfelt thanks to everyone at the ISCA who gave me this opportunity. Thank you.
With so many digital works receiving prizes, having my analog work standing all alone made me think so many things. This experience makes me want to do my absolute best in future productions.
Thank you so much for nominating our work.
I applied to the ISCA in the past to enter another work but was not selected, which was a rough experience.
I am so thankful that my final work as a student was recognized.
Although the award carries my name, it is the result of a great deal of assistance from members overcoming together the difficulties in making my work. I thank those members sincerely.
WASABI MELON /Shigeaki Takashiro
I am so proud to have my work selected alongside so many other wonderful ones. I poured my current abilities into this for 4 months to create it, hoping to produce something that utilized what I had learnt through my time as a student. I am truly happy to have my work recognized by other people at this kind of event, and feel that I still have so much room for improvement. Thank you to my teachers, mentors, and friends, not to mention my family, who have all given me their support. I’m going to work hard during my remaining time as a student to create new content.
Yubi Tone （Ubiquitous - Tone）
It is an honor to receive this award. Mixing with so many amazing creators of the same generation has given me incredible motivation.
In my normal work in research, I rarely have the experience of finishing a piece of work and “closing” a project; I feel that this award is an acknowledgment that includes potential for the future.
For the works (particularly video works) of others, it has been exceedingly important for them to be “closed” so they can stand as finished products that have created a world. I too am going to work hard with the goal of making content that will change the world, so I hope that I will continue to receive your support.
University of Tsukuba
Thank you so much for this phenomenal award. After having my work presented at a location as stylish and beautiful as Grand Front Osaka, and then to be told by the judges that the quality of a person can be felt through that person’s work, I really feel that Osaka is a truly amazing place. I’ve taken the feedback from everyone at this event to heart, and I will give my best effort when making content in the future.
Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences
Thank you for this terrific award as well as the great opportunity to discuss these works with so many people through this event. I also sincerely thank everyone that gave me their support when I was making this content. I am not going to rest on my laurels after receiving this recognition; my intent is to continue updating this work in the future. Thank you very much.

This production has provided many points for reflection, and I intend to apply this opportunity so that I can succeed in the future.
Thank you so much.
World of Light
ECC COLLEGE OF COMPUTER AND MULTIMEDIA
I am overjoyed to get this result.
As I have been able to receive many opinions that are completely different from what I would get at an ordinary game expo, it has been extremely informative.
There were many opinions around sensory parts such as concept and quality of feel, which were particularly interesting.
As we have never had an experience like this before at game contests, we want to utilize it as we create games in the future.

ASO BUSINESS COMPUTER COLLEGE
Thank you so much for this reception.
Casha-Line is an original concept and there were many difficulties making it, so to have so many people actually experience it, enjoy it and say that it was interesting is tremendously touching.
When I look at it, I think that there are parts of this game that are difficult to understand and enjoy, so I will strive to make something that is intuitive and easy to understand next time.
