Silent Manga Audition Contest 2022 now is over!

Silent Manga Audition Contest 2022: The Silent Manga Audition Contest 2022 hosted by manga Japanese publisher Coamix has been recently opened for entries inviting all manga creators to submit they best works this time on the themed “Moments of HASTE, RAGE, or SMILES”.

Short description

The Silent Manga Audition is an international manga competition hosted by manga Japanese publisher COAMIX Inc. Open to anyone worldwide, this contest invites you to submit a story told entirely through illustration, without the use of dialogue.

The theme of the 2022 edition is “Moments of HASTE, RAGE, or SMILES”. Organiser wants to see a short, dialogue-free manga that encompasses one of these key emotional representations.

Moments of HASTE, RAGE, or SMILES are the times when we express ourselves most naturally. During these moments our inner essence is exposed and we end up showing our true colors to society… with even serious consequences sometimes! Think about when YOU were in HASTE, at the peak of RAGE, or experiencing the most natural SMILES, and build up an original and entertaining manga around these key moments!

There are no limitations to what you can draw, as long as it’s an original creation that perfectly captures the theme. Study the theme and create an entertaining and easy to understand manga.

You can submit 5 – 17 pages in reading order from the right to left, monochrome only.

The legendary SMA judges will evaluate your artistic skills, your ability to build drama with an effective climatic twist, and your paneling/directorial skills.

Who may enter?

This competition is open to anyone worldwide.
