European Iwamoto Awards

European Iwamoto Awards is named after Iwamoto Kaoru, the founder of the Go Centres in Europe and Americas.

The main reason for this contest is to follow Iwamoto Kaoru’s wish of spreading Go around the world. This contest does it in two ways. First of all, it motivates Go players to think about how Go could be promoted. Secondly, through the gathering and exchange of ideas it can lead to efficient popularization of Go in all European countries.

The contest has been organized in 2001, 2003 and 2007. In 2013 the 4th edition took place.
