INTERNATIONAL MANGA AND ANIME COMPETITION 2005 IS LAUNCHED

The launch of the second International Manga & Anime Festival (IMAF) competition was announced today, and animators around the world are invited to get started on their entries for this exciting competition to identify the best in Manga and Anime talent.

They have until the end of September 2005 to work on their characters, storyboards or animations for a chance to win some of the $75,000 prize fund which will be split amongst new, original and talented animators, both professional and amateur.

This year the competition categories have been revamped to offer twelve category prizes, and there will be $30,000 for the best overall entry:

Closing date for entries is 30 September 2005, and a panel of experts will judge the competition entries.

This year, for the first time, a new award has been set up so that visitors to the competition website and the Festival will be able to vote in the People’s Prize.

Entry forms can be downloaded from the IMAF website on www.imaf.co.uk which has full terms and conditions of the competition.

According to Dr Andre Singer of IMAF, the 2004 competition attracted a very high standard of entries. "Entrants responded brilliantly last year. We were struck with the diversity of their work, showing traditional influences and extraordinary innovation. We hope to attract even more entries this year, to reflect the widening scope of Manga and Anime."

Some of the best entries will be exhibited at the International Manga and Anime Festival which is to be held at London’s County Hall in October.
