Let your talent bloom!
The goal of the MCPO AWARD

For a world where content changes at a dizzying speed.

The goal of the MCPO (Manga Contents Promote Organization) is to actively research,

domestically and internationally, new manga which has the potential for success, and promote it worldwide.

A contest for artists aiming at going professional, artists who want to test their own potential,

artists hoping to confirm the direction of current trends, artists looking for a challenge, or anyone looking to work in earnest.

Both professionals and amateurs are welcome to apply. (Teams are also welcome).

Winners will recieve critiques and advice from pros (Manga authors, illustrators, editors, designers, etc.)

Show us your potential. We're here to support your earnest efforts.

MCPO AWARD 2019 Executive Committee

What is the Manga CPO?

mangacpo-logo

Manga CPO is the official name of the Manga Contents Promote Organization.

It is a nonprofit organization that pursues new possibilities for manga and

aims to connect the world by creating new content. There are a variety of people

involved with the Manga CPO such as manga creators, manga researchers, illustrators,

and writers. They participate in events and international exchanges that are held by or

with Manga CPO to discover and develop the talent of the next generation.

What is the MCPO AWARD?

We think that the outstanding manga and illustrations that we have

are like “content seeds” that will grow in connection with animation, games,

and a variety of other media. The MCPO AWARD was created to find the

next generation of creators and produce new “content seeds”.

Our hope is that this contest will be the start of a content business

that goes beyond all borders. We look forward to your submissions.

The last thing that we’d like to say is a sincere thank you to MediBang

and all of the people who helped to make this collaboration possible.

Thank you very much.
