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The manga must be an unpublished original work (imitations, parodies, or altered versions of someone else’s manga are not allowed).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).

Hello~~ I thought I watched you already... Hmm, I've been thinking that alot recently on many DA's, it did say in a news post that fav/watch system did get a revamp.

I've noticed a few mishaps recently; my Journal didn't appear when I updated it & right now my Gallery section seems to have disappeared.

Hey nice stuff! I think your colouring and fine lines are top notch!
MathewJPallett Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist

I apologize that it's taken so long, but I've only just noticed your message.
wikivic Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
thanks for the :+fav: :D

*salute from mascot charas* :)

I faved people all the time for about a month when I started, but got none in return, which made the pageview stats a rather bizarre read.

At one time 'The Phantom Syndrome Zwei' was my most faved deviation....

Being faved 0 times.

But now 'Michi, in Colour' is my most faved, even if it's only once. Still, got things to do before Wednesday the 7th of November, as it's an important day.

Even if it's not noted on certain calendars.

hmm...wierd...altho i don't subscribe to fave-for-a-fave type stuff >.< TBH the vast majority of favs i get are on my kitten pics (5 mins work), not on my drawings (days and days of blood sweat n tears...), so thanks very much for that! :)

aww... it must have been a special deviation then! :aww:

7th november? *enquires*
MathewJPallett Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, the Seventh. I thought it was a Wednesday, but it's actually Tuesday (probably a Wednesday somewhere in the world, but not here). And there I was lying back thinking I had an extra day, one that I don't even have.

Mostly wasted buying stuff from sites written in languages I am not overly familiar with, & with strange payment methods. Usually I have to make payment before my item is dispatched, but for my recent purchases, from Germany I have to transfer money from my account when I actually receive the items, which I find particularly odd.

hi there! *watches* hope your cold improves o_O;
MathewJPallett Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist

The cold itself could probably been avoided had I not been vacuuming. I emptied the cleaner because it was full, which caused microscopic particles to spread through the room. Which probably gave me an allergic reaction. Things like this pass within 24 hours, but it's not that much fun sitting around with your eyes nose filled with tears.
