Based on the hit television show, "Project Runway", Project Manga will
give aspiring young artists a chance to pitch manga-style story and
art to a panel of publishing professionals, including Onna! Guest of
Honor, comic artist Paige Braddock. The panel will include
representatives from manga publishing companies - contestants will get
guidance and advice from people who are leaders in the manga and
comics industries. The winner has the possibility of being published
by an American manga company.
"Project Manga" is just one of the original games and contests
developed specifically for Onna!. You'll also have a chance to play an
English-language version of "Hyakunin Isshu", the classic Japanese
card game of verse-matching, or have the chance to participate in
