Calling all cosplayers and photographers
- Filcosplay (http://www.fil.cosplay.ph) is inviting cosplayers and
photographers alike to contribute photos for the exhibit to show your
artistic talents and national pride and awareness. The idea is to have
familiar, famous or mainstream anime/manga cosplayers within the
setting of Filipino icons, symbols and elements, whether it be social
awareness, pop-culture, organizations, politics, and everyday life in
Each photo team can contribute a maximum of 5 pictures. Only 20
pictures will be accepted.
Pictures must be 8R size or 8x11 inches. Minimal photomanipulation is
allowed. Can be colored, black and white or sepia.
This is not a contest. This is instead an opportunity to show everyone
how much cosplay has been integrated into our culture, and to strut
your creative juices into a gallery you can call your own.
Guidelines below as follows:
1) Photo topic must comply to the theme which is Cosplay Culture:
Filipino Flavor. Theme is composed of the following:
- Cosplayers can wear any anime or manga costume.
- Setting must be a location within the Philippines.
- Situation must be distinctly Filipino in nature, using icons and
landmarks, whether situational, political or socio-cultural.
- It is encouraged that the characters cosplayers are portraying
should look natural in their environments, or at least similar to
their actual situation or location.
- Photographs can be either a form of fashion shot, or to convey a
story (although the latter is more encouraged, because we rarely see
these types of photos).
2) Photos must be of 8R size or 8x11 inches no frames.
3) Maximum of 5 photos must be submitted per group. Each photo should

them at the end of the convention itself, and not before. Photos not
