The Eleventh International MANGA Award: Open for Applications Now!

We are pleased to announce that we will be accepting applications for the Eleventh International MANGA Award!!
The Japan International MANGA Award was launched by Then Foreign Minister Taro Aso in 2007 with the aim of honoring MANGA artists who have contributed to the promotion of Manga overseas and international culture exchange through Manga. Among 296 entries from 55 countries and regions, 14 works were selected last year, including one Gold Award work (from France) and three Silver Award works (from China, Italy and Vietnam).
Applications are open from March 17th to June 16th 2017. The MANGA Awards will be given to the best works and include a trip to Japan (generally for 10 days) by the Japan Foundation.
We look forward to seeing applications from MANGA artists overseas!
