Since 2007 the Japanese Embassy in the UK have been running an annual competition Manga Jiman where you get to demonstrate your skills as a manga artist. The Embassy always takes the competition seriously hosting an excellent awards ceremony and offering generous prizes in conjunction with their sponsors such as return flights to Japan, laptops and digital cameras. 2018 was no different and as always the quality of entrants is high.

Last week at the Japanese Embassy in London they announced the winners. Elizabeth Garwood took first place with A.R.C - 01, Aamir Zaheer won second place with his entry Genie's New Lamp and third place was award to Karen Jiyun Sung with New Home.

You can see all the winners at the Japanese Embassy in the UK in London until Thursday 28th March 2019. It's Open weekdays 09:30 - 17:30, closed weekends. Entry is free, but photo ID is necessary to gain access to the embassy. If you're in London and have the time to pop in it's worth checking out the artwork to see the current crop of up and coming UK based manga artists.
