Shonen Jump Plus Manga Contest
Shonen Jump Plus (a free digital publication in Japanese) and MediBang (which “provides free digital painting apps and software to illustrators and comic book artists worldwide”) are holding a manga contest to discover new artists. Unlike other manga auditions, this contest is set up to translate English, Korean, and Chinese submissions into Japanese for review by the editors.
Entries will be accepted through March 3, 2016. Enter through MediBang’s site. They’re looking for completed one-shot comics under 50 pages. On the bright side, “entries that don’t win may also receive feedback from editors.” On the not bright side, “The possibility of no winners being chosen exists.”
