Entry forms can be downloaded from the IMAF website on www.imaf.co.uk which has full terms and conditions of the competition.

According to Dr Andre Singer of IMAF, the 2004 competition attracted a very high standard of entries. “Entrants responded brilliantly last year. We were struck with the diversity of their work, showing traditional influences and extraordinary innovation. We hope to attract even more entries this year, to reflect the widening scope of Manga and Anime.”

Some of the best entries will be exhibited at the International Manga and Anime Festival which is to be held at London's County Hall in October.
