Manga Art Challenge + Giveaway | #mangareadathon 2018

#MANGAREADATHON GIVEAWAY #2: Draw your favourite manga!

I want you to create a picture of your favourite manga or character. One page is all I need. Then SEND it to me via snail mail! Yes, you read right! I want you to send me your physical drawing in the mail.

Last year I had several participants mention that they weren’t allowed to use social media. So, I wanted to have activities that everyone could participate in. That’s where snail mail comes in. Plus, I really love receiving things in the mail! (who doesn’t?!)


To enter this giveaway:

  • Send me one picture in the mail that you’ve created yourself of your favourite manga, or character. You can use any art mediums you like (please no glitter).
  • Pictures should be no larger than 8.5X11 inches (Standard letter size paper). I will accept photographs (of 3-dimensional or oversized art pieces).
  • Include the following information with your submission: your name & address (where I can send your prize to), your email (so I can contact you if you win), the name of the manga and character depicted in your art (because I don’t know everything), and if it is an original design or not.
  • If you have copied the picture from somewhere make sure you include a reference to the original artist, and the source of the picture.
  • Include the hashtag #mangareadathon.
  • Please DO NOT include any personal information on the front of the picture.
  • Send your picture to my P.O. Box listed below.
  • Read the Rules & Disclaimers carefully before you enter.


NOTE: You will not be judged on your artistic skill! The winner of this contest will be chosen randomly via draw.



The winner will receive:

  • a Kaweco Ice Sport (Black) fountain pen, with extra refills (various colours)
  • and, a selection of Japanese stationery (including a muji notebook, washi tape, page flags, and stickers)
