Please take special note that all rounds at Madman Anime Festival will be taking place on SUNDAY. All other rounds will be taking place on Saturday. Due to Madman Anime Festival Melbourne moving back to a September date, New Zealand will not be hosting a round for the 2018 contest, however New Zealand entrants are able to enter into any of the Australian hosted rounds.
Instead, Overload NZ will now be playing host to the first round of preliminaries of the 2019 contest. Winners of the round in New Zealand will now have 11 months to prepare for the finals in 2019, which will also take place at Madman Anime Festival Melbourne in 2019.
Full terms and conditions as well as cut off dates for sign up dates can be found on the MNCC Website. We are looking forward to seeing everyone dazzle the stage once again 2018.
