What is the World Cosplay Championship Video Division?
It will be a competition to determine the best cosplayers in the world, the grand champions in a contest of cosplay video entries filmed and edited by the representative cosplayers selected at each country and region, which will be judged at the stage of Oasis 21, in Nagoya, on the 7th (Saturday) and 8th (Sunday) of August 2021. This tournament will be streamed online.
The representative cosplayers from all around the world will not be coming to Japan this year, but we request your kind understanding, as we are looking forward to the celebration of the regular event with the presence of the international representatives in Japan in 2022.
