Photographers - If you have a logo that you'd like to be visible in your showcase, please upload your logo file along with your photos. A png or vector format with transparent background is ideal. Due to the space available, photos may be cropped as needed and logos in the photo may be cropped out.
For Cover Image and Full Page consideration please provide image at 300dpi and at least 1000 pixels on the longest of the image with no visible pixelation. Photo should be in a vertical/profile layout.

Scanned photos need to be scanned at 300dpi for print quality.
If files are too large and require a Dropbox link, you are still required to fill out the form.
Contest Entries: Everyone that submits will automatically be considered into our seasonal contests. Because the winners will receive a full page feature, we ask that submissions are of the highest quality. Pixelation and clarity issues may lessen your chances of winning. To avoid a popularity contest through voting, Creative Cosplays will choose the winners as fairly as possibly. Photos will be judged on photo quality, work and effort put into your cosplay, and creativity.
