                            Manga Illustration Contest


For the first time ever, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco is hosting a manga
(Japanese comics) illustration contest in conjunction with its Tezuka: The Marvel of
Manga exhibition, which will be on view from June 2 through September 9, 2007. (Visit
www.marvelofmanga.org for more information about Tezuka Osamu and the exhibition.)

Your artwork will be judged by a panel of experts, authors, and artists; and fabulous
prizes will be awarded during the museum’s fantastic Blast-Off! fanime event on July 7,
2007. Think you’re up for the challenge? Then read further for details!


CONTEST THEME

Forward to the Future! Tezuka Osamu’s future wasn’t
necessarily perfect, but his characters were always trying to
improve upon their pasts. What is your vision of the future?



ILLUSTRATION GUIDELINES
Black and white or glorious color, we want to see what you can do. And while you may want to draw your
favorite manga stars in a new way, we want you to get creative with your own original characters. Use
this as an opportunity to come up with the next wave of manga!

AGE CATEGORIES
The contest is divided into three age categories: Age 12 and under, Age 13–18, and Age 19 and over. It
is open to people of all ability levels and experience. As this contest is open to artists under the age of 18,
please no shunga (erotic pictures), hentai (pornography, literally: perversion), or extreme imagery. There
are plenty of ways to illustrate imagination without depicting blood, gore, or nudity.

SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY
Sending in your artwork is easy: simply log in to http://flickr.com, find us at
http://flickr.com/groups/marvelofmanga and upload your artwork. Make sure that all your information is
current, because we’ll need to contact you if you win. When submitting your entry, please also indicate
which age category you are competing in. The deadline to enter the contest is Friday, June 15, 2007.

JUDGING
The 10 best entries per age category will be posted on the website in early July, 2007.

PRIZES
There will be one grand prize pack for each of the three age categories, with each prize pack valued at
over $300! Winners will be contacted via email or mail and the prizes will be awarded during the
museum’s Blast-Off! event on July 7, 2007.
