How to enter
Fill out the contest entry form with your information. ONE entry per person, so be sure to pick your best costume! You may submit up to 5 images of the same costume in case a certain orientation works better for our banner (landscape/horizontal images are preferred).
Contest is open to residents of Canada & US aged 18 and up. Previous contest winners may enter again but can not submit the same costume.
Deadline for submissions is December 21st 2018. Cosplay Supplies will screen entries for eligibility and prizes will be judged by staff. Entries that did not win in one of the categories will be posted publicly for community voting in January.
Cosplay Supplies reserves the right to disqualify entries if we deem the photos to be inappropriate, permission from the photographer is not given, or fraudulent information is used.
