This is to celebrate the 100th "TEZUKA MANGA CONTEST" which is a tradition of "Weekly Shonen Jump" magazine, published by Shueisha Inc. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, hereinafter Shueisha).

Since the launch of MANGA Plus, an overseas manga service and web service operated by Shueisha since January 2019, MediBang, which cooperates with the operation, has noticed an increasing number of manga readers worldwide. We wanted to respond to Shueisha's desire to create a new manga for the world, and the creator's desire to be evaluated by the "Weekly Shonen Jump". MediBang, who has experience in organizing contests, has accepted commission to host the "JUMP TEZUKA MANGA CONTEST 100th Anniversary - Oversea Department Special Award" on ART street.
