kanazawa marathon 2023

Yassan will participate as a jury in the Kanazawa Marathon 2023 GPS Art Contest, an online event of the Kanazawa Marathon.
The GPS Art Contest was well received last year and will be held again this year. GPS Marathon and GPS Art, which became popular due to the Corona Disaster, are showing signs of taking root as a cultural phenomenon. Moreover, this year’s contest is open to everyone! Please submit your GPS artwork.

Now, the subject of this contest is ……

Let’s feel and draw Kanazawa!

Please draw GPS art that makes you feel “Kanazawa” or “Ishikawa Prefecture” in your area.
If you have something that gives a sense of Kanazawa, you will receive more points in the jurying process! Not only the motif of your GPS art, but also the attached photo information will be considered for judging points. We are looking forward to seeing your love for Kanazawa.

I hope you will enjoy GPS art as a result of this competition…. Please give it a try!
