Shogakukan Manga Award

The Shogakukan Manga Award (小学館漫画賞, Shōgakukan Mangashō) is one of Japan's major manga awards, sponsored by Shogakukan Publishing. It has been awarded annually for serialized manga since 1955 and features candidates from a number of publishers.

The current award categories are:

Children's (児童向け部門, Jidō muke bumon)

Boy's (少年向け部門, Shōnen muke bumon)

Girl's (少女向け部門, Shōjo muke bumon)

General (一般向け部門, Ippan muke bumon)

Initially, there was only one general award. In 1976, the General category was introduced.[1] The Boy's/Girl's category was introduced in 1980,[1] then split in 1984 into separate Boy's and Girl's awards.[1] The Children's category was introduced in 1982.[1] From 1976 to 1989, the General category was called the Seinen/General category (青年一般向け部門, Seinen Ippan Muke Bumon).

Each winning work will be honored with a bronze statuette and a prize of 1 million yen (about US$9,000). Special awards are also occasionally given out for outstanding work, lifetime achievement, and so forth.
