We appreciate the presence of the press in the preliminary rounds and the finals of the DCM. However, we ask to respect some rules.     


  • No press allowed during the costume review. Only participants, the jury and the jury manager as well as the head organizers may reside in the rating room.
  • No contact with the jury during the rating and no insight into the assessment records or details of the review.     
  • The press will be only allowed backstage by prior arrangement with a request for consideration of the privacy of the participants (no records of the changing room allowed; no interviews with participants who refuse to be interviewed).     
  • In front of the stage the press is always welcome. Please take care to not constrain spectators in the front row, photograpers or the jury.


Please note that we can not offer any mediation of cosplayers, manga and anime fans or other scene-associated persons for television productions or print media. If you want to launch an appeal in this regard you can alternatively contact the Animexx e. V. For reports with a focus on the German Cosplaychampionship we like to offer our assistance in contacting with our participants.
