Madman National Cosplay Championship launches in 2009!

Cosplay (or costume play) has been steadily growing in popularity over the years in various states across Australia, however, to date there has never been a chance for cosplayers to individually express themselves and be recognised on a national front. This is no longer the case as Madman Entertainment launches the first ever National Cosplay Championship in 2009.

Featuring a series of preliminary rounds that will be held in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth at Supanova Expo and Adelaide at AVCON, this is a truly national championship, with all preliminary round winners competing in a national final in late 2009 for a grand prize of a trip for two to fly to Japan and attend the 2010 Tokyo Anime Fair.
Format:

The contest is open to individuals only. You must also perform a skit as part of your entry. You will be required to submit a portfolio with your previous cosplay experience as well as documentation of the costume that you will be competing with in the contest via email. The entry forms will be available from February 1st 2009 at www.madman.com.au/cosplay
Preliminary Round Dates:
Melbourne Supanova Expo March 27-29, Royal Showgrounds
Brisbane Supanova Expo April 3-5, RNA Showgrounds
Sydney Supanova Expo June 26-28, The Dome, Olympic Park
Perth Supanova Expo July 3-5, Claremont Showgrounds
Adelaide AVCON July 25-26, Adelaide Convention Centre
National Championship

Melbourne November 2009 (Date and venue TBC)

All preliminary round winners will receive a trip to the National Championship with flights and accommodation paid for by Madman Entertainment.

So what are you waiting for? Start getting your portfolio and sewing ideas together! Please note: Entries into the championship must be pre-approved by our panel of judges and places are strictly limited. Full terms and conditions will be available from January 5th 2009 on www.madman.com.au/cosplay

Easy for you to say.
Some people can't get a job. For some people having a job doesn't improve their situation a great deal.
Do you actually know whether or not I already have a job?

Don't squander your money then? If you have a job (and I don't mean a casual job) and you can't afford anything only buy essentials I guess.

Or hijack a plane. Either or.

Was hoping to return to Melbourne this year for Supanova (loved last year, though it did help when i was on the other side of the fence, not the "wait forever in line" side.) but at the moment it just doesn't seem that feasible, so I may head to Sydney one and tie that in with the WWE RAW tour on the 4th july Mr. Green

So Melbourne was good then? I'm seriously thinking about going to the Sydney one this year as I've heard its great, plus my b'day is on the 2nd of July, so whatever I buy there can count as presents!

Personally i loved Melbourne despite it's hiccups, though it was my first con i had ever been to as well so it was more "oh wow look at that" type thing. That and I did get to interview spike spencer so that did add to it hehehe

Ah, I avoided the Melbourne Supanova because it was its first year here and I thought they might not have it all together, but maybe I'll go this year.

As far as an event goes it seemed pretty decent, there was slight teething problems as always, such as announcements during cosplay event :p

Should be good to see sydney though

You can always come in plain clothes (YES, I said it) I was hoping to meet some Madboarders if I got to SN, it won't be half as fun if i'm walking around, squealing to myself.

I'm down for that . We will be walking around Supanova and anyone seen with Kamina shades will instantly be recognised as a Madboarder. Sydeny for me, hopefully see some of you there.

I'm highly tempted to enter, but I'm not sure about the skit thing. I don't know if I could come up with anything interesting to perform as a solo skit.
