Onna! Presents "Project Manga"

Onna!, a three-day festival of women's roles in animation and comics taking place October 8-10, 2005 in Newark, NJ, is proud to introduce "Project Manga"!

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 Onna!'s original Drama CD recording. Of course, Onna! will also have all the popular contests and games, from Music Video Contests to a whack-a-thon! Read more about Onna!s games and contests at http://www.onnafest.com.
