Moments of HASTE, RAGE, or SMILES are the times when we express ourselves most naturally. During these moments our inner essence is exposed and we end up showing our true colors to society… with even serious consequences sometimes!

Think about when YOU were in HASTE, at the peak of RAGE, or experiencing the most natural SMILES, and build up an original and entertaining manga around these key moments!

We want to see a short, dialogue-free manga that encompasses ONE of these key emotional representations.
Let your imagination run wild with stories of any genre that utilizes HASTE, RAGE, or SMILES as their core.
The legendary SMA judges will evaluate your artistic skills, your ability to build drama with an effective climatic twist, and your paneling/directorial skills.

Winning an award in the SILENT MANGA AUDITION® is just the beginning of your manga journey.
We are looking to help the next big manga creators to make their debut in Japan…
And we have prepared special opportunities and projects to make it possible!

Invite your Friends!
Tell your friends about the SMA and invite them to the audition!
