Welcome to Doujin Market

Doujin Market is Singapore's premier pop culture creators convention. The event celebrates doujin - fan communities passionate about creating art, the original and derivative fan works that they produce, and their aspirations for self-publishing comics, games, manga, music and stories.

About Doujin Market

In Japanese, "doujin" describes passionate individuals working individually or collectively (in groups known as circles) to self-publish and showcase their works.
