Finalists announced for the HYPER Kawaii Contest

We’ve had many, many fabulous entries to this year’s first ever HYPER Kawaii Contest and we’ve had a really difficult time whittling them down to the finalists over the past few days. We are delighted to be able to now announce the eight finalists, whose super-kawaii entries will be on display for all HYPER JAPAN visitors to see and vote for at Festival 2019.

All eight of the HYPER Kawaii Contest finalists are announced below and will be displayed in a dedicated kawaii contest area of the HARAJUKU Kawaii Zone at HYPER JAPAN Festival 2019.
Visitors can view all of the finalists at their leisure and will be able to vote once for their favourite all weekend.
The winner will be the entry which receives the most votes at Festival 2019 and will be announced in the days following the event.
We promised some kawaii prizes for the winner of the HYPER Kawaii Contest and we are thrilled to announce that the winner will receive a fabulous selection of kawaii prizes and presents courtesy of our very generous sponsors Kawaii Box, whose monthly kawaii delivery service brings a little parcel of happiness to doorsteps around the world every month and Lomography, who are kindly giving away one of their fantastic instant cameras as one of the prizes so the winner of the HYPER Kawaii Contest can continue capturing their kawaii creations on film.

The finalists are all so amazingly kawaii I’m sure it will be really hard to choose which one you want to vote for, but take a look at the finalists below see if you have a favourite!

Yeah baby, I like it raw ?? After visiting the #hyperjapan festival last year I had to take part in their #hyperkawaiicontest showcasing original, handmade, Japanese kawaii inspired work. For me, the highlight was the Japan food show so here’s my little handmade polymer clay sushi friends, hand painted and varnished on a charm bracelet. I just wished I’d made my favourite sushi, a dragon roll. I’ll definitely be wearing it when I visit the show this year. It was inspired by my original artwork ‘Yeah baby, I like to raw’ and my favourite is the cheeky little egg roll, tamago, with his geeky smile hiding at the back, up to no good, I can imagine. Which one is your favourite? ?? . . . #sushi? #sushitime #sushimania #sushisushi #sushiart #sushiaddict #sushilove #polymerclay #polymerclayfood #cuteclay #claycharms #kawaiicharms #cutecrafts #kawaiiclay #polymerclaycharm #handmadecharms #polymerclayjewellery #kawaiicute #kawaiiartist #kawaiiart #kawaii #kawaiifood #createmakeshare #sharinghandmadelove #bestmadehandmade #capturemycraft #makersofinstagram #makersoninstagram
