Judging

cosplayers and members of the gaming industry.

2. The number of 'Likes' on each entry displayed on the IGX Facebook page will only
contribute to a small percentage of the overall decision. Voting via spam or duplicate
Facebook profiles is strictly not allowed. If discovered, those entries will lose a certain
amount of points.     

Cosplay Submission Rules
1. The character that you submit must be of video game origin.
Popular characters from other media (eg. comic book superheroes, TV shows, movies) do
not qualify, even if they are featured in their own games. For example, The Amazing
Spiderman video game adaptions would not qualify because the design is originally from the
live-action movie which it is based on.
However, characters which have an original design based on their game are qualified. For
example, Spiderman's design from the upcoming Spiderman game for Playstation 4.
Batman’s design from the Arkham or Injustice games.

2. Outfits should not be overly revealing as to constitute indecent exposure and should be
appropriate for a family audience. No statements containing profanity or political/religious
commentary – including messages on costumes or props – will be allowed.

3. In order to conform to the rules of cosplay craftsmanship judging, all participations
entering must petition that their outfit is an original creation. An outfit is considered an
"original" creation if the said outfit's articles can fit the following criteria:
    • Created from scratch using fabric or foam material
    • Store bought costumes are allowed but must be specifically mentioned in your description
    • Generic in nature (socks, undershirts, undergarments)
    • Modified from pre-existing materials (shoes, belts, shirts)

4. The images submitted should be in JPG or PNG format. The minimum resolution of the
image should be 800 x 600, with the file size being no larger than 2 MB.

5. Each entry can only send the following:
  • Front, back and 3/4 images to highlight all the sides and finish of the costume (for Judging purposes)
  • One video taken in landscape mode (For judging purposes)
  • A single “best” image of your cosplay, which will be uploaded to the IGX Facebook page (other images and your video will not be uploaded)

6. Photoshopping or editing of images for colour correction purposes is allowed. However,
heavy editing would receive fewer points if the judges feel the cosplay image has been
greatly morphed or changed. For example, background swapping, too many effects applied, etc. 

7. The last date for submission of entries is October 27, 2017.
