Wicked Comics are proud to have introduced the first local cosplay competition during the Malta Comic Con 2009. Since than Wicked Comics have continued to foster cosplay in Malta and in parallel with the convention, cosplay has since then, grown exponentially. Despite the fact that these past two years the Malta Comic Con has been postponed for health and safety reasons Wicked Comics continued to seek means to give cosplayers a platform to have fun and showcase their skills. Building on the success of the cosplay competition organised as part of the Pop Culture Online Fest, Wicked Comics are proud to initiate 2022 with a new friendly Cosplay Competition.
On Saturday 5th March 2022 between 9am and 4pm, cosplayers are invited to convene at the Valletta Design Cluster where they will have the opportunity to showcase their costumes, perform a skit and have photos and footage taken by professional photographers and videographers. Whether one is seasoned cosplayer or just starting out, we invite all cosplayers to come join the fun and be with a chance to win some fantastic prizes.
Contestants will participate in two separate competitions. The first one will be decided by judges on the day of the event, while the other one will take place online later. Footage of the cosplay taken on the day will be made available on the Malta Comic Con website and fans will vote for all competing cosplayers. The voters will have two votes available and will be able to select their favorite two cosplayers. The prizes for the physical cosplay contest and the online cosplay contest will each be worth €200 for the 1st place and €100 for the second place. This means that cosplayers can with up to €400 euros.
It is important to note that cosplayers are allowed to participate using past costumes which were never awarded 1st or 2nd place with in any other contests.
