Manga in/as Essay competition: Interpreting Kurama Tengu

To demonstrate the expressive potential of manga, (based at Leiden University), is proud to announce its third competition ‘Interpreting Kurama Tengu.’

For its 3rd manga competition, we invite manga artists, cartoonists, students and scholars to offer graphic interpretations of the classic Japanese Noh play Kurama tengu.

Contributors may interpret this task as creatively, expansively, or parsimoniously as they like: style, genre, and length may all be freely chosen. Contributors are encouraged to give the Kurama tengu a Science Fiction twist but this is not a requirement.

The text (or part of the text) of the original Noh play may be used if desired but is not necessary. Euro 1000 in prizes, plus the best artist will be considered for commission for a follow-up project.

All entries will be used for academic, non-commercial products only.

Deadline: June 1, 2014
