Events and Contests:
Annual YenPress Talent Search (currently not in progress)
Antarctic Press - http://www.antarctic-press.com/html/ver ... ssions.php
Dark Horse - http://www.darkhorse.com/Company/SubmissionsIt is far more desirable for you as a submitting artist to be versed in penciling, inking, and writing. As publishers, we prefer creators who can do it all. If you can't ink your own work, you can team yourself with an inker, but remember, the royalty will now be spread between you and the inker. The same deal applies if you work with a writer. It's much more beneficial for you to be multi-talented in these areas, but it's not essential. If you can do it all, then it's better for you and for us.

P2 Manga - http://p2manga.com/faqMangaMagazine is always interested in publishing and promoting new authors. Through our unique subscription based system, our goal is to make it possible for independent manga authors to succeed in the manga industry without being eaten alive by the big publication houses. However, in order to ensure that all of our authors are top quality and committed to bringing consistent and exciting manga, we have a few minimum requirements for prospective authors.
YenPress - http://www.yenpress.com/about/If you have a story you'd like to submit, you should fill out the light novel submission form. If you want the story in manga format, sorry we do not accept projects such as these. You must have your own artist. We do not provide an artist for you at this time. You are more than welcomed to submit an artist/writer team submission.
Ambiguous (send inquiries before submitting):If you are interested in pitching a project to Yen Press, please include a project summary (indicating your intended audience), a plot outline complete with character descriptions and initial concept designs, and as above a minimum of five to ten pages of sequential art in various stages. This does not have to be final art for the project in question although that would be welcome.

ITCH Manga - http://www.itchpublishing.com/news/services/artists/
VIZ Media - http://www.viz.com/company/faq#5I’m sorry, but ITCH does not currently accept pitches or submissions from creators. ITCH operates on a very small scale, with one person doing most of the work involved, and I want to focus on doing right by the books we already have before expanding further. Thank you for taking an interest in ITCH, and please continue to support independent comics and manga by buying books and spreading the word.
Defunct/Discontinued:At the present moment, all of the manga that appears in our magazines come directly from manga that has been serialized and published in Japan.
