If you are a fan of cosplay, then Blizzard is holding its first official Hearthstone cosplay contest! The winner of the contest will get an exclusive Aluneth staff replica, and be invited to join Blizzard in Cologne, Germany for gamescom 2018!
Blizzard games have inspired amazing creations from some of the best cosplayers around the world, and now it’s time for Hearthstone to take center stage. We’re holding our first-ever Hearthstone Cosplay Contest, and we’re calling all cosplayers to join the fun online!
Get inspired by one of your favorite Hearthstone cards, put your cosplay skills to the test, and then simply send us a photo of your final creation to enter the competition. Read on for submission details, prize information, and guidelines.
How to Enter
The contest runs from 12:00 CEST on May 15, 2018 until 23:59 CEST on July 27, 2018. To take part, send an email during that timeframe to [email protected] with the following information:
- Subject: Hearthstone Cosplay Contest + Your Last Name
- The email must include:
- Your first and last name
- Your contact information
- A description of your cosplay with the character’s name (e.g. Warsong Commander, Novice Engineer, etc.)
- A photo of your final cosplay in JPEG or JPG, no larger than 2 MB per file
We also encourage you to share your progress on social media using the #hearthstonecosplaycontest hashtag. We just might share your updates on our Hearthstone Facebook and/or Twitter accounts!
It wouldn’t be much of a competition without a fabulous prize. The top Hearthstone cosplayer in this contest will take home an exclusive Aluneth staff replica!
The winner will also be invited to join us in Cologne, Germany for gamescom 2018, including travel, event admission, and two-night accommodation. You’ll be able to show off your Hearthstone cosplay on our gamescom stage, where our film crew will capture the moment you lay your hands on Aluneth in a special awards ceremony.
Your final entry must be submitted via email by 23:59 CEST on July 27, 2018 in order to be considered. Don’t forget to include the photo of your final cosplay!
The contest is open to individuals aged 13 years and over. Minors under the age of 18 must have the authorization of a parent or guardian to participate.
Cosplay submissions must be based on an existing Hearthstone card (all formats). Personal interpretations of cards are permitted, and creativity is encouraged. Judging criteria will be based on how well the cosplay represents the Hearthstone card and the Hearthstone spirit: fun, light-hearted, and delightfully surprising!
A jury of Blizzard Entertainment employees will choose a contest winner on August 1, 2018, who will be contacted via email from [email protected] by August 6 in order to arrange travel to gamescom 2018.
