Beginning in 2009, the Madman National Cosplay Championship has been Australia and New Zealand’s premiere cosplay competition which determines the best cosplayer in the categories of Japanese anime, manga, video games and other Japanese sub-cultures. Each year preliminary rounds are hosted in capital cities across each country to find a candidate suitable to compete in the Grand Final event, held at Madman Anime Festival in Melbourne.

Cosplayers compete for prizes in each round and also battle it out for the ultimate prize, a trip for two to Japan! With this contest we aim to promote and encourage fans to be involved in the cosplay community and to find a champion that can encourage even more new comers into this amazing craft.
