Cosplay video competition


What is WCCS?

The same organization behind the WCS competition is hosting a cosplay video contest alongside the event! In this contest, two-person teams will compete, and judges will evaluate short recordings (up to 2 minutes and 30 seconds) showcasing the participants' performances. The selected team from Poland will advance to the international stage, where they'll have the chance to win a trip to Japan for this year's WCS finals as guests! And you know what's best? There are no restrictions on whether the cosplays must be self-made, purchased, or commissioned. Creativity and passion are what matter!


In the competition, two-person teams participate. Participants applying for WCCS in Poland must be Polish citizens and be at least 18 years old by July 25, 2024. Foreigners with permanent residency in Poland and residing in Poland for at least three years can also compete, regardless of whether their country of origin has its own qualifications. However, they cannot apply for this edition of WCCS in any other country in such a case.


Participants can portray characters from anime, manga, video/computer games, or tokusatsu. The source material must be released by a Japanese company or under a license granted by such a company. Both participants' costumes must originate from the same source. Cosplays can be handmade by the participants, with the assistance of others, or even purchased from a store or custom-made.
