The results of the Manga Jiman 2012 Competition were announced at a reception held at London's Embassy of Japan on 8th February. The major manga-writing competition, now in its sixth year, continues to grow in popularity and unearth young, upcoming manga artists in the UK.
The first prize was awarded to Portuguese-born collaborators Sara Ferreira and Gisela Martins for their entry ‘I Love You’.
‘Moving House’, another collaboration but from husband and wife duo Susan and Steve Cook, received the runners-up prize while ‘Invidia’ by Katja Hammond was placed third.
