What is SMA?

Established in 2012, the SILENT MANGA AUDITION® is an international manga contest that aims to discover and support the future stars of global manga. 

Organized by COAMIX Inc., Japan and lead by CEO Nobuhiko Horie (ex-chief editor of ‘Weekly Shonen Jump’ and ‘Weekly Comic Bunch’), this pioneering event has grown to become one of the biggest, and most successful manga competitions in the world. With Tsukasa Hojo (creator of ‘Cat’s ♥ Eye’ and ‘City Hunter’ ), Tetsuo Hara (‘Fist of the North Star’, ‘Ikusa no Ko’), Ryuji Tsugihara (‘Yoroshiku Mecha-Doc’ and ‘Restore Garage 251’), and Jun Tomizawa (‘Commander Zero’ and ‘Koroshiya Menkichi’) joining Mr. Horie on the judging panel, the SILENT MANGA AUDITION® is leading the way for international manga, attracting participants from over 100 countries worldwide.
