Vietnamese artists are being encouraged to enter the Sixth International MANGA Award, according to the Japanese Embassy in Hanoi on Thursday.

The Golden Prize will be given to the best entry with three entrants receiving the Silver Prize.

In addition, the Japan Foundation will invite prize winners to Japan to attend the award ceremony. They will also have a meeting with Japanese MANGA artists and visit publishing companies in Japan.

The award was established to share Japanese pop culture and to help promote understanding of the nation around the world, aiming at honouring MANGA artists who have contributed to the promotion of Japanese comics and cartoons overseas.

For more information on how to enter the contest contact the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and www.manga-award.jp . The closing date for entries is June 15.
