1st Kodansha Internation Manga Competition Winner Leaked

topThe winner of the 1st Morning Internation Manga Competition (MIMC) was decided in July. While Kodansha has not announced the winner, according to a leaked from Tokyopop, Rem, the artist of Tokyopop's manga Vampire Kisses, has won the competition with her manga Kage no Matsuri. The winner of MIMC will receive $5,000, as well as possibly having their work serialzed in Kodansha's magazine.

According to a flyer from Rem, Kodansha will publish Kage no Matsuri in the October issue of Morning2 magazine. Kage no Matsuri will appear on the cover of the magazine, and will also be getting a full page spread in the magazine.

Rem was the first winner of the TOKYOPOP Rising Stars of Manga Competition with her entry, Devil's Candy (story by Clint Bickham). She is also the artist of Tokyopop's manga adaptation of Vampire Kisses written by Ellen Schrieber. Her website can be found here.

The deadline for the 2nd International Manga Competition is December 31st 2007. For more information check here. Also, PWCW's Kai-Ming Cha has an interview with Eijiro Shimada, the editor-in-chief of Morning2, regarding the competition.
