Welcome to the 11th annual Madman National Cosplay Championship (MNCC) 2019! Madman Entertainment and the Overload Committee are hosting the NZ Preliminary Round on the 29th of September at The Cloud. This is the first Preliminary Round for the MNCC for 2019. The winner will be invited to go to the finals at the Madman Anime Festival in Melbourne for the final round, and the Grand Final winner will win a trip for two to Japan!
MNCC is open to all Australian and NZ residents, including international students or workers who hold valid visas. You may enter as an individual or as a team of two. Don’t forget you must make your own costume and perform a skit, but you are allowed to re-use the same winning costume at the final round.
The dates for the Melbourne Championship in Australia have not yet been finalised but will be within a similar time frame as the 2018 final round (September 2018).
Please note that due to the Madman Anime Festival Melbourne moving to an earlier than usual date, instead of Overload hosting a round for the current year (as in past years), the Auckland round at Overload 2018 will be the first preliminary round for 2019.
