GalaCon Cosplay Contest

Like in the last years, the main aspect of our Cosplay Contest is fun. Everyone can take part, no matter whether you are a total beginner or a professional cosplayer.

Using the feedback from last year´s contest, we reviewed our concept again with the generous help of the professional cosplayers Lan and Fafa from Germany, who will also be part of the jury this year. The new concept is more simple, fairer to all participants and tries to meet the needs of professional cosplayers more than in the bygone years. The all-new Judgement Guidelines (see link below) control the juries work and help you to understand their decisions.

If you are interested, feel free to sign up. Our team will check your application and give you a feedback as soon as possible. 

Please make sure that you have read the rules (see link below) before applying. By posting the application, you declare your consent with these rules.
