9th Manga Competition of the Deutsch-Japanische Gesellschaft (DJG) Berlin in 2021


Every two years since 2005, the Deutsch-Japanische Gesellschaft Berlin (DJG Berlin – German-Japanese Society of Berlin) has organized a manga competition that is enjoying growing popularity nationwide. The theme of the ninth competition is “Distance and Proximity – 160 Years of Friendship between Germany and Japan,” and you are invited to submit your entries to the DJG by 31 August 2021.

You can find more information and a video on the competition on the website of the Deutsch-Japanische Gesellschaft.

The Senate Chancellery’s Division for International Relations is supporting the 2021 manga competition as part of the Berlin – Tokyo city partnership. We are looking forward to the awards ceremony on 26 November 2021 and the subsequent exhibition featuring the best works. In addition, the Deutsch-Japanische Gesellschaft Berlin will be hosting a manga workshop on 10 December 2021. These events will be held at the Red Town Hall, depending on how the pandemic situation develops.
