About this event

The Embassy of Japan searches for the best comic-creating talent in the UK with Manga Jiman, an annual competition now in its 15th year.

The competition has two categories; Yonkoma Manga, a comic strip of 4 panels on one page with a fixed structure and Manga Jiman, a short story told across 6 to 8 pages. Entrants are asked to create an original story featuring a theme, with the theme for this latest edition being 'light'.

In Japan, 'manga' is all encompassing term meaning comics and Manga Jiman promotes talented artists who tell their stories in a wide variety of styles. Visit the exhibition to see their winning stories!
