The Witcher Cosplay Competition
“Without a doubt, The Witcher has always had the most talented community out there. Each month you guys send us tons of great fan art, musical tracks, fanfics and stuff so amazing that we sometimes decide to hang it on the walls here in the studio. The time has come to give you a chance to create something really amazing and get rewarded for your hard work,” said Marcin Momot, Community Manager, CD PROJEKT RED.
With all-star professional cosplayers invited to help pick the winners, the studio is offering the victor $1000, custom Witcher jewelry, and a unique chance to fly all over the world with Team RED and cosplay at the gaming industry’s biggest events, all expenses paid.
“The competition starts on the 24th of July and ends on the 30th of October, so there’s plenty of time to create something that will blow us away”, adds Momot.
The jury of the competition consists of:
