The Seinen magazine Comic Zenon is currently running a competition where they're looking for comics that express themselves clearly without the use of words.

Manga Audition Rules
“No Words, No Story”

Submissions are judged based on the author's use of a manga artist's most valuable skill: performance. Please express the selected “one emotion” in a way that is uniquely yours.
No need to come up with a complex story. The important thing is to convey the selected theme to your readers. Visually depict your characters emotions without relying on a backstory and gimmicks.
Professionals and amateurs of any gender; all are welcome to apply!
The competition will be judged by Tsukasa Houjou author of City Hunter, Tetsuo Hara author of Hokuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star), Nobuhiko Horie the Chief Editor of Comic Zenon (Former Chief Editor, “Weekly Shonen Jump”) and the Comic Zenon Editorial Team.

Entries can be submitted by PDF at the Audition Entry page or posting the pages to the Editorial department directly:

Comic Zenon Editorial Department
North Stars Pictures, Inc.
Attn: Comic Zenon Manga Audition
Medicorp Building 8, 3rd Floor,
Kichijojihon-cho 2-4-14
Musashino-shi, Tokyo
JAPAN 180-0004

Although this option would seem somewhat inappropriate considering the competition closes at the end of this month.

Submission Details

The manga must be an unpublished original work (imitations, parodies, or altered versions of someone else’s manga are not allowed). NSP and third parties associated with the Manga Audition, here by called the Manga Audition Committee, may use submissions in the following ways, anywhere in the world. In some cases, a submission may undergo translation upon use.
  1. Publication in magazines and other printed media. Publication in a manga book.
  2. Distribution as an e-book.
  3. Promotional material related to 1 and 2.

Any use of the submission other than those mentioned above will be discussed between NSP and the author prior to use. (this includes cases where the author intends to use the submission in some way) The submission will be considered as published in Japan first, and will therefore be bound by Japan's copyright laws. Should either of the below circumstances apply to a submission, it will be disqualified. If prizes have already been allocated, the author's right to the prize will be null and void.
  1. Submission was already submitted to another manga contest, or was announced/used in another magazine.
  2. Submission belongs to, or in some way infringes on the rights/profits of, a third party.
There area few examples of silent comics on the audition page which should provide an idea of the page-count they're looking for (even if a few still use onomatopoeia, making them technically not silent).

Hi Mathew,lovely work you have here.Did you ever work on something called Xenocrayon some years back?One of the writers on it is called Iain Grant,whatever happened to that venture and Iain?Was supposed to do some stuff on it myself but lost contact.

I sketched up the covers to the first two covers to Xenocrayon as well as a five page Star Wars parody. This was over a decade ago and I haven't heard anything from him Iain since.

Hey there mathew, somehow you've managed to escape my devart watch list, but that shall end now! :D

I myself am in need of a new watch, I have about half a dozen (apparently) but not one of them actually works as their batteries have all run out, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're useless.

They can make great paper weights which is particularly useful when I have to open the windows on a stuffy day. I also have a pocket watch that comes with a rather lengthy chain & even though it no longer works, I can still use it to hypnotise people (if I were a hypnotist)!
