The HYPER Anime Contest 2019 will have two main categories and we are really looking forward to seeing the submissions for them both. Please submit us your Manga or an Illustration.

The final judging process for the HYPER Anime Contest is finally beginning!
The first round of judging will take place online via social media.
Entries will be displayed from today on HYPER JAPAN’s Instagram and Twitter accounts, with online judging continuing until 11:59 PM on Sunday, June 30th.
The top three entries in each category, based on the total number of likes (on Instagram) and likes + retweets (on Twitter) they receive, will then be displayed at HYPER JAPAN Festival 2019 for the final round of public judging by HYPER JAPAN visitors.

Category A: HYPER JAPAN 10th Anniversary

2020 marks the 10th Anniversary of the first ever HYPER JAPAN and we want to celebrate this with a special poster which we are inviting you to design.

Category B: S&B Curry

Amongst other delicious treats, S&B Foods are famous for their popular and super yummy Golden Curry. We want you to design a curry-themed graphic which could be turned into an animation. This winner of this category will take part in the 2020 Pop Art Award and the eventual winner may even have their animated short be used by S&B in one of their online campaigns!
Theme: Katsu curry or Japanese curry
