The official website of the anime studio Kyoto Animation (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star, K-ON!) has opened a section for the second Kyoto Animation Awards. Just like last year, applicants can compete in the novel, manga, and scenario categories, which will be judged by a committee selected from Kyoto Animation's staff. In each category, there are plans for a grand prize of 300,000 yen (about US$3,500) and a honorable mention prize of 100,000 yen (US$1,200). There are no restrictions on story genre, age, or professional/amateur status, but entries must be in Japanese.
