The Prize is presented annually in each of the following three categories: Advanced Technology, Basic Sciences, and Arts and Philosophy. The Kyoto Prize is a rich and prestigious prize awarded by the Inamori Foundation, founded in 1984 by Kazuo Inamori, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Kyocera Corporation. This is the first time the award event has been held outside Japan and the US.
