The Cultural Affairs Bureau of Taichung first promoted the Da Dun Fine Arts Exhibition as a local exhibition in 1996. By April 2002 it had already grown into an internationally recognized annual event and become a globally important art exchange platform.
To ensure a fair and objective competition, the organizers invite experts and scholars to form jury committees. The exhibition entails planning, collecting submissions, judging, and finishes with an awards ceremony. In the end, a total of about two hundred exceptional works of art are awarded prizes: the top three prizes, awards of merit and short-listed for the eleven fine arts categories. Every first prize winner in each category is also automatically enrolled in competition for the five limited, Da Dun Prizes, which represent this exhibition’s ultimate honor.
