cosplay competition

Ever since our first GamerFest in 2017 we’ve been lucky enough to see some of the best cosplay out there! 

We’ve teamed up once more with our friends at Guild of Nerds to launch our 2023 GamerFest Summer Cosplay Competition!

So whether you want to come along as your favourite legendary gaming character or comic book hero, we want to see you at GamerFest Dublin this May 27th & 28th 💜

With a top prize of €200 for the best in show, as well as additional prizes for U16 entries, we’ve got something for everyone.

Our Judges will choose the winners at our Live Stage on Sunday May 28th so don’t miss the chance to take part (or just cheer your favourite cosplayers!) 

Check out our competition rules below and get your costume ready for GamerFest Summer!

All contestants must have a valid GamerFest ticket to enter the venue. The contest is open to all attendees.  Contestants must register for the Cosplay competition on the day between 11.00am and 1.00pm.


The contest will be fashion show style. Contestants will walk across the stage as our Host introduces them. Contestants are encouraged to be creative during their time on stage. Action poses or catch phrases will be viewed favourably.

All costumes and activity must be in good taste. GamerFest is a family friendly show so no nudity, profanity or unruly behaviour is allowed. This includes any activity that could compromise the safety of spectators. This is a family event!

The use of fire, glitter, liquids or any other objects that will cause a mess are prohibited. We ask that all contestants display good sportsmanship to each other and the judges.
