The EuroCosplay Championships are comprised of a series of competitions held at partner events held all over Europe, and the EuroCosplay Championships Final to crown a European Champion which is held annually at the MCM London Comic Con in October.
Each partner event will organise a competition to select one cosplayer to be their EuroCosplay Finalist for the EuroCosplay Championships Final for that year, representing the country the partner event has taken place in.
Partner events are free to set the format, rules and criteria of their qualifier with just three basic regulations set by EuroCosplay. This combined with EuroCosplay policy to not interfere with judging at partner events creates the freedom for countries to represent their opinions on what makes great cosplay to everyone.
The three common regulations set by EuroCosplay for all competitions to select Finalists are listed below and the official rules in full can be found on this page for further reading.
