WCS 2010 Announcement

New York Anime Festival has been a superb partner with the World Cosplay Summit in holding the USA preliminaries since 2006. The World Cosplay Summit Executive Committee is saddened to announce that - as stated on the NYAF blog - the WCS 2010 representatives will not be selected at the upcoming New York Anime Festival in September this year. Negotiations had been continuing for some time but with the NYAF event coming up very quickly and with preparation demands, a decision had to be made. The WCSEC echoes New York Anime Festivals regret that things could not be worked out for this year.

The World Cosplay Summit operates in Japan making it very far for many guests and participants to travel to. Partnering with NYAF has led to numerous successes in promoting an exchange of cosplayers from both the US and Japan to perform and present interpretations of their favorite anime or manga characters through cosplay.
In the past there have been changes in partner organizations in countries besides the USA such as China, Brazil and Japan. In fact this year in Japan there is no partner organization for the preliminaries. All official information on any changes or other WCS related matters can be found here.

Make sure to cheer on your favorite team in WCS 2009!
