The UK Cosplay Championship is taking place at over a dozen events in every region of the country this year. The finals will be held at London Anime & Gaming Con in February 2020 and the winner will receive a £250 cash prize along with the UK Cosplay Championship trophy.The UK Cosplay Championship will not adversely impact or complicate existing cosplay masquerades – rules will remain the same as our standard rules. All you have to do to qualify for the finals is to come 1st, 2nd or 3rd in ANY cosplay masquerade at our conventions (or at other registered qualifying events). If you qualify then you are not obliged to enter the finals. We want to keep this as simple, easy and non-scary for cosplayers as possible! Those that qualify, in addition to their usual prizes, will also receive a full weekend ticket to London Anime & Gaming Con so they can take part. The UK Cosplay Championship is run by Animeleague, one of the world’s largest anime communities, run by fans for fans.
