Kido Prizes (version 9)

    Keywords: Culture & History

As soon as I posted this table, I found a [ext] complete list on the Japanese Wikipedia. What I'm going to do is translate that table (if I can), in its original format, to a page called "Kido Prize Winners", and then possibly request this article be deleted or merged into the new one. In the meantime there's no harm in letting it stay up. The notes section might also contain data not in the Jp. Wikipedia table.

(Very) incomplete list of players who have won Kido Prizes, compiled from various sources. The Kido Prizes of Go should not be confused with the film-making awards of the same name.

This article follows the prize ordering [ext] used in the Power Report, except when the same player won multiple prizes in one year, in which case their prize entries are placed together.

Kataoka Satoshi has apparently won a prize three times, but it's unknown when.
