European Cosplay Gathering Chooses EGX for UK Competition
Gamer Network, the world’s leading network of independent video games websites and producer of the UK’s premiere video games events, and European Cosplay Gathering (ECG), Europe’s premier cosplay competition, today announced the UK Preliminaries will be held for the first time at this September’s event.
With 11 European countries participating, the internationally recognised European Cosplay Gathering is one of the largest cosplay events on the continent. The UK Preliminaries – held on the dedicated EGX cosplay stage – will take place on Sunday 27th September, and are open to UK passport-holders and permanent residents aged 17 and over. Whether passionate about video games, comics or anime, ECG encourages all styles of cosplay and costuming. The overall winning individual and group will be selected to represent the UK in an ‘all expenses’ trip to the finals at Japan Expo – held in Paris in July 2016. Those wishing to enter the European Cosplay Gathering will be able to enter via the EGX website cosplay section (available through www.egx.net/egx/2015) from June.
Further to the EGC UK Preliminaries, EGX 2015 will see the return of the firmly established EGX Cosplay Championship – in association with cosplay organiser Zonic Productions – on Saturday 26th September. Now in its third year, the EGX Cosplay Championship is the UK gaming community’s largest cosplay contest, attracting scores of entrants. With high profile judges invited from the cosplay community, plus a high value mystery prize, this year’s cosplay contest will be – in keeping with the rest of the show – the largest and most impressive EGX has seen. Cosplayers can register for the competition at the show’s cosplay desk at least two hours prior to the competition. More information on the entry requirements will be available on the EGX website (www.egx.net/egx/2015) or by emailing email@example.com.
In addition to these two headline events, the EGX 2015 cosplay stage has activity throughout the four days of the show, including panels, mini masquerades, photo shoots and the return of the hilarious timed cosplay show ‘Beat The Cosplay Clock’. More information, as well as a full activity schedule, will be revealed in the coming weeks and months.
