Fact is: I had to give away good money to fly to Japan, stay in Japan and, yeah, also leave Japan again. It was good money, for real, and I won’t regret it ever. But, hey, you could do something totally different. You could just get to Japan, for free, stay in Japan, for free, and, yeah, also leave Japan, for free. There’s only one small thing you have to do…
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan currently holds a global manga contest right now. “As part of the active use of pop culture in public diplomacy, it has been decided to establish the International Manga Award”, those responsible tell us. “The Award has been established to honor Manga artists who contribute to the promotion of Manga overseas.”
The contest ends June 17, so you might start now. Just create a manga and send it to them, it’s that easy. The winners will fly to Japan for about ten days – for free. Get all the information right here, read about the award here, and take a look at last year’s winners right here. Are you going to create the next “One Piece”? If you think you can, then you know what you have to do!
