Aspiring manga artists itching to show off their talent may find the recently revealed Shonen Jump Plus x MediBang manga contest to be the perfect opportunity, as first and second place winners will have their hard work published in none other than the legendary Shonen Jump Plus.
The contest has even allowed international artists the chance to participate thanks to digital painting software distributor MediBang, whose staff will translate entries so that Shonen Jump Plus editors can properly evaluate them.
Aside from having their worthy manga published for all to see, the first place winner will also find themselves 1 million yen richer (and the 2nd place winner’s entry will also be published), with 2nd and 3rd place winners being gifted smaller cash prizes respectively.
While the prize money and opportunity to bathe in the limelight of Shonen Jump Plus may be highly sought after, unlucky losing entrants may possibly be graced with the holy advice of Shonen Jump Plus editors, perhaps making the whole ordeal worthwhile for some – win or lose.
Those seeking to enter have until March 17th (as indicated by their requirements page) to submit their entries.
