All dedicated cosplayers are invited to craft their best Dota 2-themed costumes and make the journey to Seattle in August for the Main Event of The International. Participating contestants do not need to be event ticket holders — all cosplayers who register to participate will be admitted for free to the Prejudging Phase near the event venue. The Finals will then take place on the Main Event stage to determine who will walk away with the winner’s share of the cash prize.
Regardless of your placement in the competition, all registered cosplayers who meet the entry requirements will also receive this year's Dota 2 Cosplay Crest upon appearing in cosplay during the Prejudging Phase of the competition.
