LINE Webtoon announces winners of $50,000 comics contest

LINE Webtoon, a webcomic service for mobile devices and web browsers, has announced the winners of the $50,000 content to kick off its Challenge League platform.

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

Third Place $5,000 Winners
Roar Street Journal, Pang Hong Yi Bonnie
Catharsis, Cheryl Dawn Fontanilla

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.”
