Manga Jiman 2013 Exhibition

Home »  Blog Posts »  Manga Jiman 2013 Exhibition

Last year (2013) I entered the annual Manga Jiman competition (held by the Japan Embassy in London) and found out early on this year that I was shortlisted as a winner!

I wasn’t really expecting to win anything at all, mainly because I rushed my entry and pushed myself to finish it as the deadline drew to a close (I was really determined to enter this year no matter what)! I haven’t entered the competition since 2009 (in 2008 I placed 5th with my entry, “Dilemma”) so overall, I just felt good about submitting something after so long ;u;.

A couple of weeks ago,  I attended the opening ceremony of the Manga Jiman 2013 Exhibition at the Japan embassy and there I found out where I placed… 9TH!

What she says is the truth!.. Uh… but she doesn’t actually say this in the comic. I just edited this panel for added effect  (Image from my 2013 Manga Jiman entry “Portfolio of lies”).

My comic “Portfolio of Lies” placed 9th (yay)! That’s not bad for someone who wasn’t expecting to place. During the party at the embassy (that sounds posh doesn’t it?) I was very happy to hear that my entry was well received and that people genuinely enjoyed reading it (thank you everyone who gave me positive feedback, it gave me such a warm fuzzy feeling inside ;u;). I’ll try my best to enter again this year, hopefully next time round I will do even better ^_^. Congratulations to all the winners!

The Manga Jiman 2013 exhibition is currently open at the Japan Embassy in London until late April. More details, including a full list of winners, can be found on the Japan Embassy website (visit while you still can :D)!
