Sharpen Your Pencils – Shonen Jump Launches Multi-Language Manga Contest

Sharpen Your Pencils - Shonen Jump Launches Multi-Language Manga Contest

Exciting news, comic artists! Shonen Jump has launched a contest awarding winners with not only a nice chunk of change, but also the chance to have their work published in Shonen Jump. Can you imagine seeing your name and work next to mega behemoths like One Piece and Dragonball?!

Artists looking to participate are asked to submit original, one-shot stories that are either 15, 19, 31 or 45 pages in length. The contest is open to submissions in three languages – English, Japanese and Chinese.

I only occasionally dabble in artwork these days, but contests like this really make me want to use the ol’ Wacom for something other than logos and photo restorations. The idea that something I wrote or drew being looked at by the editors of the world’s most popular comics… It makes a person’s heart flutter doesn’t it?

The deadline for the content is October 1st, 2013 and winners will be announced in November, with their works available to read come December. For now you can read all the ins, outs, whos and hows on the contest application page, and don’t forget to spread the word.
