World Cosplay Championship Video Division

Due to the current situation, WCS is again postponed to next year. But, to be able to share our love of cosplay, the WCS organisation has created a new competition, World Cosplay Championship Video Division.
And so, AnimeCon hosts the Dutch preliminaries for this global championship on the 12th of June during AnimeCon @ Home. The winner of the preliminaries will compete against other countries to become the grand champions in a contest of cosplay videos, produced and edited by the cosplayers themselves.
You can sign up using
Simplified rules:
2 cosplayers will create a video of a maximum of 2.5 minutes.
The two members of the team must wear costumes belonging to the same Japanese manga, anime, video game or tokusatsu work. Also, these must be handmade by the contestants themselves.
The video must be made and edited by the cosplayers themselves, but they are allowed to have help, for example with filming and special effects, etc.
The entries must be finalised and sent to AnimeCon by the 30th of May, so they can be judged and prepared for the show.
