For example, the Special Group Exhibition in Kyoto has suddenly come up and must select quickly so there is no time to pre-select. However, any Premium Members are guaranteed with their quality of works because they have already passed the difficult 1st selection made by our judges. 2) We are not discriminating with other artists but we like loyal artists so we provide them with various benefits to stay with us. So we give opportunity to apply or renew the membership at the beginning of the year (January 1- February 28) before start to call for entries in March. So after March all artists are same. 3) Also even artists who passed the 1st selection of EWAAC in the past, if they do not apply for premium membership for 3 consecutive years then they will lose eligibility of applying for premium membership because we regard they will no longer interested
