SMASH! Announce Plans to Host Australian Preliminary Competition for World Cosplay Summit 2015
Event co-ordinators for SMASH! (Sydney Manga and Anime Show) have this evening announced that they will be hosting the Australian preliminary round for the World Cosplay Summit 2015. Taking place at this year’s SMASH! convention in August, the WCS Australian Preliminary Competition will enable cosplayers to enter the competition as a cosplay duo, with the lone victorious team earning a trip to Japan and the privilege to represent all Aussie cosplayers in the official World Cosplay Summit of 2015.
Ray Elinon | President of SMASH!
SMASH! has always been a platform for fans of Japanese pop-culture to express themselves through the hobby of cosplay. For SMASH! to be involved in a prestigious cosplay event that promotes international exchange through Japanese pop-culture, our partnership with WCS Australia will give fans the chance to be recognised on the national and international cosplay stage.
SMASH! is set to be held at Rosehill Gardens this year on the 9th and 10th August 2014.
