Entries for the Second International MANGA Award are invited until February29, 2008.

The Award was established in May 2007 to honor MANGA artists who have contributed to the promotion of MANGA overseas. In the First International MANGA Award competition was held last year, two Filipino artists, Elmer Damaso and Jhomar Soriano, creators of Ravenskull and Mr. Grieves respectively, ranked among the top 19 brilliant MANGA artists, having been selected among the 146 nominees from 26 countries and regions all over the world.

The Executive Committee members of the Second International MANGA Award include the Japanese Minister for Foreign Affairs and the President of the Japan Foundation among others.

The Golden Prize of the Second International MANGA Award will be given to the best MANGA from all the entries and the Silver Prize to the three distinguished works. In addition, the Japan Foundation will sponsor a ten-day trip to Japan for the winners to attend the award ceremony. Winners will also have the opportunity to meet with Japanese MANGA artists and visit publication companies during the trip.
