Nordic Cosplay Championship

The Nordic Cosplay Championship is hosted by NärCon in Sweden and takes place every year during the summer in Linköping, Sweden. Involved are event organizers from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden which together pick out the best of the best from their respective cosplay scene. These 13 cosplayers then meet at the NCC to compete for glory and prizes, including a trip to Japan for two.

NCC started in 2012 at the swedish event NärCon Sommar 2012, and has since then continued to grow and become a natural part of the nordic cosplay community.

The NCC competition focuses equally on craftmanship and performance.

There are 2 qualifications spots in Denmark at different conventions, one at KoyoCon and one at us at J-Popcon.

Representatives from J-Popcon:

2024 Lucian
2023 MeanKitteh
2019 Yoshu Cosplay
2018 REEF Cosplay
