Here's how they're going to work:
Folks who want to enter the contest just have to get dressed up, take a photo in the Cosplay, and email it to us. (We're working on the honor system here folks. This is all for fun. Please don't send in something from a previous con or contest) There will be a 48 hour window for those emailed photos to come in. 2:00 pm Eastern on Wednesday March 18 through 2:00 pm on Friday March 20.
Send your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
There will actually be two contests.
One is the fan poll (see below) and the other will be a celebrity judging.
Cosplay Guests Knightmage and Mogchelle, as well as past winner Annye Driscoll, have all offered to help, so their decision will be the second contest
Requirements: Not many; as stated above, this is for fun. However, if response does get really heavy, We're probably going to have to cap participation at around 100 .
One entry per person, please.
THIS IS A KID FRIENDLY CONTEST.
On Saturday, all of the photos will be posted here in the event and a poll will be created for voting. ANYONE who wants to can vote for up to three.
The poll will stay live for the duration of the event.
Whoever gets the most votes wins.
We are still working on whether or not there will be prizes. I'm trying to get something small together, but no promises on that end.
