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. The 2019 event will be the final of such a format.
From the start of the 2020 contest rounds we will be introducing a new format for MNCC.
There will no longer be a finals event for our 2020 contest, instead we will be crowning regional winners at each of our hosted events. The prizes will now consist of the following:
Trip for cosplayer (2 if entered as a duio) to their choice of either Madman Anime Festival Sydney 2020 or Melbourne 2020 consisting of:
2nd place will receive a $200 Madman Voucher
3rd place will receive a $100 Madman Voucher
