ONLINE FINALS

As a response to the situation around the globe, we would like to invite you all for online finals, that will be organized in the summer. Every action we take is dictated by our concern about the health and safety of everyone involved in the League of Legends European Cosplay Contest, but we promise to bring you the best online cosplay experience!
The main course of finals is still unchanged – during the finals, the Jury will select three winners of the finals (places I-III) and will also hand out a special “Jury Award.” All these places are guaranteed cash prizes, amounting to 2,500 EUR. The Jury will consist of recognizable figures of the cosplay community, as well as representatives of Riot Games.

We will share more details about when the stream of finals will happen on this very contest page, official social-medias and League of Legends European Cosplay Contest event on Facebook.
