The results of the Manga Jiman 2015 Competition were announced at a reception held at the Embassy of Japan on Friday 18 March 2016. Now in its ninth year, Manga Jiman continues to grow in popularity as a comic-writing competition which unearths the brightest talented artists in the UK. Entrants aged 14 or over created a short story based on the theme of ‘bright young things’.

The first prize was awarded to Luca Fruzza for his entry ‘Sonnegarten’. ‘#1’, by Alex Brennan-Dent, received the runners-up prize while ‘Once Upon A Lunchtime’ by Katja Hammond was placed third.
