Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ Editorial Department has established a digital business base dubbed “Jump Digital Lab” to conduct digital recruitment and information dissemination. “Jump Digital Lab” is composed of two main parts: a year-round digital app competition and an editorial staff blog.
The “Jump Digital Lab” app development competition is a revamp of the “Shonen Jump App Development Contest” — which has been conducted since 2017. The competition is open for applications year-round, with entries reviewed monthly. If a prize-winning project comes out from amongst the applications, the development team who proposed the project will be provided with up to JPY 50M to bring their plan to reality.
Meanwhile, the Shonen Jump+ Editorial Department Blog will feature articles and opinion pieces of the magazine’s current editorial staff on the manga industry and the current trend of digitalisation. Check back on the site to find out more in the future.
