Epic has announced over on Twitter that they’re hosting a Fortnite cosplay contest to lead up to Gamescom. To enter, head over to the Gleam post. Here’s everything you need to know about the contest:

Dress to Impress!

Create a Fortnite-themed cosplay (either Battle Royale or Save The World) and submit it via the option below. Then, spread the word! The Top 4 Cosplayers — as voted by the community in the gallery — will be invited to participate in the Grand Cosplay Finale live at gamescom in Cologne, Germany on August 25, 2018. These Top 4 winners will receive travel and lodging along with gamescom passes.

The 11 runner ups won’t go home empty-handed either. There are 5,000 V-Bucks with your name on it, if you gather enough votes.

Didn’t get enough votes? There’s still hope! If you’re planning to attend gamescom, come in costume. You may win a spot for the finale through the daily cosplay competitions on the Fortnite stage!
