77 Star, the Japanese company that’s being bringing otaku-culture education & training to Singapore, has another programme up the sleeves: The First Manga Artist Challenge Contest (マンガアーチスト チャレンジコンテスト)!
77 Star has tied up with publisher Shueisha (集英社, the people behind Shonen Jump and the rest of the Jump-series manga) to discover new manga talents. The chosen ones will have their manga published in one of their monthly/weekly anthologies. For those in Singapore, wanting to break into the Japan manga scene, this is a great opportunity.
