Launched globally in July by NAVER, South Korea’s premier Internet portal, LINE Webtoon offers nearly 70 webcomics. It in turn introduced Challenge League, a free webcomic publishing platform where creators can upload their comics with a chance to become a featured artist, meaning they receive monthly pay and promotional support.
More than 1,900 webcomics were reportedly submitted to the contest. The winners are:
Grand Prize $30,000 Winner
Space Boy, Stephen McCranie
Second Place $10,000 Winner
ShootAround, Susanna Ada Alice Nousiainen
Although the contest has ended, each month LINE Webtoon will continue to select a comic submitted through the Challenge League platform to feature as a partnered series, with the creator made an official artist, “eligible for monthly payments.”
