Welcome to the CGA website

CosplayGEN Awards 2017 is a competition designed to honor the winners of 5 categories of artistry and creativity: Best Costume, Best Armor, Best Prop, Best Photographer, and Best Videographer.

The submissions have ended and we reached the CGA Semifinals. Choosing the semifinalists from hundreds of awesome submissions was by no means an easy task, and all we could do was to increase the number of participants qualified for this second step of our competition.

We'd like to thank everyone who participated and showed interest in CosplayGEN Awards, and also to congratulate our semifinalists and wish them good luck. The jury will definitely have a difficult task!

CGA 2017 Winners

Our jury made their decision and we are happy to reveal the winners of the 5 CGA categories!

Meet the CGA jury

For the CosplayGEN Awards Jury we selected some of the best community authorities: from veteran acknowledged cosplayers to grandmaster photographers of hundreds of costumes. Most of them are old friends and contributors of CosplayGEN and we are honored and delighted to join forces with them yet again! Their know-how and experience will give you the confidence that your material is in good hands!


After the submission stage and the internal selection, the CosplayGEN Team will send 75 submissions (semi-finalists) to the jury.
After the jury's decision, we will invite to Davos, Switzerland, 8 finalists and 2 winners:

  • 4 finalists for Best Costume,
  • 2 finalists for Best Prop,
  • 2 finalists for Best Armor,
  • plus the winner of Best Videographer Award
  • and the winner of Best Photographer Award.
The trip expenses (accommodation, flight and meals) for the 10 finalists will be covered by CosplayGEN Awards.
Our guests will receive a VIP pass and will take part in the final show held during JapAniMangaNight, in Davos (World's Finest Meeting Place), Switzerland, on May 26-28.
Also, we will prepare other surprises on spot. The 75 semi-finalists will be published on the CGA website.
