In an effort to preserve and advance the development of craft arts, the National Palace Museum is collaborating with the National Taiwan Craft Research Institute to present the winners of this year's National Crafts Awards. The awards were first established in 1992, under the title Folk Crafts Awards, as an extension of the International Traditional Craft Exhibition. This year, the Council for Cultural Affairs transferred authority over the competition to the National Taiwan Craft Research Institute, renaming tit with the present title. This year's debut of the new awards attracted more participants than any previous year. Forty-one winners were selected from a total of 263 entries, which included weavings and textiles, sculptures and engravings, ceramics, metalwork, and a variety of other crafts. In presenting the award-winning entries, the National Palace Museum hopes to enrich the realms of creative endeavor and art appreciation.
