Kido Prize Winners (version 36)

    Keywords: Culture & History

This is a translation of a [ext] table from the Japanese Wikipedia.

There's also the incomplete SL page Kido Prizes with some information on why the prizes were awarded.

The Japanese table includes a column converting Gregorian dating (eg. 1967年) to Japanese era dating (eg. 昭和42, ie. Showa 42). This has been omitted for the sake of space.

There are ten categories of prize listed. From left to right:

  • 1. 最優秀棋士賞 (Most Outstanding)
  • 2. 最多勝利賞 (Most Wins)
  • 3. 勝率第1位賞 (Winning Percentage)
  • 4. 連勝記録賞 (Winning Streak)
  • 5. 殊勲賞 (Outstanding)
  • 6. 敢闘賞 (Kiai Prize)
  • 7. 技能賞 (Technique)
  • 8. 女流賞 (Women's Prize)
  • 9. 新人賞 (New Star)
  • 10. 特別賞 (Special Prize)

The English prize names given are a combination of those on the aforementioned Kido Prizes article (in turn from the Nihon Kiin English site and the Power Report), Jisho dictionary lookup and a bit of guessing, with compression for space.

The 16th (1982) edition was the first in which no-one won a prize for the first time. This happened again in the 22nd (1988), 25th (1991) and 27th (1993).

In 1991, the prizes system was revised.

  • 連勝記録賞 (Winning Streak) was renamed to 連勝賞.
  • 殊勲賞 (Outstanding Performance)) was renamed to 優秀棋士賞 (Outstanding Player), to match 最優秀棋士賞 (Most Outstanding Player).
  • 最多対局賞 (Most Games Played) was added.
  • 技能賞 (Technique) was removed.

Later, in 1998, the 国際賞 (International Prize) was added.
