55th Pentel ICAE (The International Children’s Art Exhibition)

The International Children's Art Exhibition (ICAE) is a prestigious event that gives children from all over the world the opportunity to showcase their creativity. Children aged 3 to 15 can participate in the competition. Drawings are judged for originality, clear content and cultural expression. About 100,000 drawings are entered each year. Every year from April to March of the following year, an exhibition is held in various regions of Japan.


  • Unpublished drawings with dimensions up to 54cm x 38cm are accepted for participation in the competition.
  • There is no set theme, which means children can let their ideas and imagination run wild.
  • Each child can only enter one drawing, and all submitted works become the property of the organizers and are not returned.


The contest is sponsored by Pentel. Winners receive medals and certificates. This is a great way for children to develop their artistic skills and gain international recognition for their talents.
