If you want to represent the UK with your cosplay on the international stage then MCM London Comic Con is your target. This May, there are THREE opportunities to win a trip abroad for an international cosplay contest final!
You can sign up for the UK WCS Qualifier, UK ICL Qualifiers, and Cosplay Masquerades via a form at the bottom of this page.
The World Cosplay Summit is the longest running and most famous international cosplay contest, with the final being held in a week long experience in Japan culminating in a stage show. The UK qualifier is on the Saturday of the MCM London Comic Con, and if you fancy a paid trip to Japan you can sign up now!
The eligibility criteria are that you must be: a team of two people who are able to travel to Japan for the World Cosplay Summit running from the 28th of July to the 5th of August 2018, who will be age 18 or over by the 28th of July 2018; British nationals or residents in Britain for at least 3 years; wearing costumes for this are from Japanese anime, manga, tokusatsu or video games; entering the qualifier with a performance.
The International Cosplay League returns for a second year with the final being held at ‘Japan Weekend’ in Madrid. There are two UK qualifiers: one on the Saturday for a team of two people performing; and one on the Sunday for a solo entry which is based on craftsmanship. If winning a trip to sunny Spain in late September sounds like a perfect end to a great weekend, you can sign up now!
The eligibility criteria are that you must be: able to travel to Spain for the International Cosplay League Final running from the 19th of September to the 21st of September 2018, who will be age 18 or over by the 19th of September 2018; British nationals or residents in Britain for at least 3 years; wearing costumes for this are from an official source, rather than original designs or ones based on fanart. NB: the source of the costumes do NOT have to be Japanese for the ICL.
Furthermore, if entering on the Saturday you must be a team of two people who are performing; whereas on Sunday you must be a solo entry who is not performing.
