Line Webtoon announces Challenge League, a free and open platform service on which anyone can upload creative comics. Challenge League gives you a chance to be a professional cartoonist and publish your artwork on the application.

Line Webtoon also allows users to read local and international comics easily in the Thai language for free, through smartphones and the website, www.webtoons.com/th.

The first Challenge League contest allows users to submit comics for the chance to win prizes totalling 1 million baht and become an official featured artist on Line Webtoon. The contest will officially open today. It will run until May 24. Readers will also have the chance to win prizes by collecting points earned by making comments, liking and sharing comics on social networks.

Jun Koo Kim, Line Webtoon director and founder, said the official launch of Challenge League in Thailand will inspire aspiring comic writers and artists.

"In the future we will continue creating a variety of content and activities on Line Webtoon for Thai users, and we hope that the Challenge League platform will receive good feedback," he said. 

There are two content categories for artists: entire story and episodes. The winner will win a cash prize of 300,000 baht, the runner-up 100,000 baht and two second runners-up will each receive 50,000 baht.

There are also prizes for a random weekly winner. The two users who earn the highest accumulated points throughout the contest will win an HP Probook. The two users with the highest accumulated points each week will win an iPad Air 2 16GB WiFi. Ten other users with relatively high accumulated points during the week will receive a premium gift set from Line Webtoon worth 1,000 Baht.
