    VIP treatment for all contestants

    For us, this is a no-brainer. We provide free entry, lodgings, travel and food as well as a personal assistant during the event. Giving VIP treatment to all of our contestants is very important and the first step to ensuring that everyone who competes in the NCC feels treated like royalty.

    A truly desirable first prize

    Besides the great honor of becoming the Nordic Cosplay Champion, it is important to us that the winner is properly rewarded. Since Japan has played a large role in the popularization of cosplay, and also hosts to the World Cosplay Summit, we offer the winner a week-long trip for two to Japan at their leisure.

    A show to remember

    When you attend as an official NCC contestant, we make sure you feel like it. The backstage area is equipped with mirrors, snacks and helpful service personnel. We dedicate at least a full day for the NCC complete with prejudging, rehearsals, photo shoots and the main show. During your performance, you decide the stage lighting and we will even create a LED backdrop with custom graphics based on your instructions.

    Making sure the right cosplayer wins

    This is by far our hardest task. By inviting only seasoned, experienced judges from the participating countries to our panel, and often a guest judge from another country as well, we make sure that a fair result is reached. If you want to know more about the rules and judging of the NCC, visit our Rules page.

    Always listening and always improving

    Every idea we get, we run by established cosplayers to make sure that it’s a good one. We cherish every piece of feedback and critique we receive. Why? Because we know that it will make the NCC a better show. Maybe even the best cosplay show, ever.
