The nice folk at the Embassy of Japan in London kindly dropped us a line to let us know they have posted up the results of their annual Manga Jiman comics award, which, now in its sixth year, has become one of the fixtures on the UK comics calendar. This year the winning entry was I Love You by Sara Ferreira and Gisela Martins, with husband and wife team Susan and Steven Cook taking the runners up prize for Moving House, Invidia by Katja Hammond took the third spot and Dounia Chanchorle won the prize for most impressive manga by an entrant aged between fourteen and sixteen for her The Lady in White. As always there is an exhibition of the top entries (see the site for the list of the top ten) which is now open and runs weekdays until the 29th of March; the exhibition is free but as you need to enter the embassy to see it you will need photo ID. Congrats to the winners, and if any of you are posting your entries online to be read then let us know.
