Onna!, a three-day festival of women�s roles in animation and comics taking place October 8-10, 2005 in Newark, NJ, is proud to introduce Project Manga!
Be Discovered at Onna! will give aspiring young artists a chance to pitch a manga-style story and art to a panel of publishing professionals, including Onna! Guest of Honor, creator of Jane’s World, Paige Braddock. The panel will include representatives from manga publishing companies – contestants will get guidance and advice from people who are leaders in the manga and comics industries. The winner has the possibility of being published by an American manga company.
Be Discovered at Onna! is just one of the original games and contests developed specifically for Onna!. You�ll also have a chance to play an English-language version of Hyakunin Isshu, the classical Japanese card game of verse-matching, or have the chance to participate in Onna!�s original Drama CD recording. Of course, Onna! will also have all the popular contest and games, from Music Video Contest to a whack-a-thon!
