New Format for Dutch Manga Awards

After seven years of Dutch Manga Awards we decided to completely change the format. Previously we judged already material already published in print. Now we decided to start judging work not yet published.

The main difference is that instead of just publishing and then waiting for the outcome, artists will have to decide in advance to participate and send in their applications. Another difference is that we no longer make a difference between new talent or established artists: everyone can participate. 

Other differences are that the winners will be on display in the center the building throughout our festival. Also we set up the new Dutch Manga Awards in cooperation with AniWay Magazine and Hanabi Publishers.

The awards will consist of two contests: the short story award and the character design award. You can read all about the new Dutch Manga Awards at:
