Want to try your hand at competing with your manga? Try one of the contests below!
Silent Manga Audition (usually around the end of March) – This annual contest gives out the top prizes including $5,000 for the grand prize winner and recognition by current manga creators in Japan. As the title says “silent”, this manga has one definite rule: there should be no dialogue in your manga.
