|Niigata Comic Market|
The Niigata Comic Market, commonly known as Gataket (ガタケット gataketto?), is a bimonthly dōjinshi comic book convention held in Niigata city in Japan. It is currently held at either Toki Messe or the Niigata-shi Sangyou Shinkou Center. It was first held in 1983, and between 7,000 and 10,000 people regularly attend each event. It is the largest dōjinshi comic market held on the Sea of Japan side of Japan.
After the Gataket secretariat inauguration in September 1982, the first Niigata Comic Market took place in January 1983. It had 46 direct participation circles and nine consignment participation circles.

Niigata Manga Competition
The Niigata Manga Competition (にいがた漫画大賞 Niigata Manga Taishō?) is a Manga contest held annually in Niigata City every September. It is sponsored by the Niigata Manga Competition planning committee. It is jointly sponsored by the Niigata Comic Market, the city of Niigata, and the Japan Animation and Manga College, a local vocational school in Niigata city. It has been held every year since 1998. It is unique because of the rarity of a local municipal government sponsoring a manga competition.
