Cologne’s mayor, Elfi Scho-Antwerpes, crowned the winners of the 5th Annual MangaMagie in the historical town hall of the cathedral town. 928 participants from all over Germany took part in the contest.

Anna Ulbricht – born in Schwerin in 1987 – is the best manga artist of 2006; with her eight page manga On My Way, she got first place, winning €1,000.

Anna currently studies in Bonn.

Second place went to Natalia Zaitseva from Leopoldshafen, near Karlsruhe – born in St. Petersburg (Russia) in 1987 – with her manga Home Sweet Home, which won her €500. Third place (a manga-set worth €250) went to Ramona Loebke from Greven, with Was sich Neckt…

The winning manga were shown at the award ceremony in a small exhibition, which will tour the train station bookstores of Germany after this (dates can be found at
