Japan Expo Paris - July 14-17, 2022 Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center

Artistic Envelope Contest

This year again, try to win your ticket for Japan Expo by participating to the artistic envelopes contest! This year's theme: the phoenix, just like the theme of our 2022 edition!

Posted on


If you feel like an artist, don't miss the envelope contest! Following the poll on our social networks, the theme you chose is: myths and legends of Japan, with a touch of "Japan Expo"! 

Only one condition: at least one of this year's guest, animation or our mascots (Chibi Dino, the Geisha, the Samurai or the schoolgirl) must also appear in your artwork! For the rest, "sky is the limit"!

We are waiting for your works impatiently: try your luck to win your entrance to Japan Expo. Two winners will be selected, and each of them will win an entrance to the festival.


The rules are simple: you must decorate an envelope you own way (drawing, collage, fabric, painting) and send it to us.


Myths and legends of Japan, with a touch of "Japan Expo"! 

The envelope must also represent at least one element of the program of this and/or one of the mascots of Japan Expo (Chibi Dino, the Geisha, the Samurai or the schoolgirl).

You must decorate the front of your envelope, meaning the side including our address and the stamp. The back of your envelope can remain blank. Let your imagination take over: originality will pay off!

The envelope must remain as it is (do not put it in another envelope).

All formats are accepted (standard size, handmade…) as long as it is an envelope.

Send your work to the following address:
Japan Expo
Concours d'enveloppes artistiques
14 place Georges POMPIDOU
93160 Noisy-le-Grand – France

Do not forget to include in the envelope a piece of paper with your personal details: name, surname, age, email and postal address and/or write them at the back of the envelope.


You have until June 27th, 2022.

Letters sent after this date, post office's stamp as proof, will be considered non-admissible.


The 2 winners will get a free access to Japan Expo 20th Impact, which will be available on a day of their choice (Thursday, Friday or Sunday) and be sent to the address indicated in their entry after the contest closing date.

Good Luck!


Q. : I’m afraid my envelope will get damaged during its journey.
