The theme of the AAC 2022 Chess Match will be TRADITION vs TECHNOLOGY and all pieces will be split into these two teams.
All entrants must have their costumes 100% finished when entering and must provide:
1. A reference photo of their character
2. A photo of the contestant wearing the finished costume
Please submit photos linked to a third party image host such as Photobucket or Imgur and NOT a social media platform. If we are unable to see your pictures or you do not submit pictures, you will be disqualified from consideration.
THE CUT OFF FOR ENTRANTS IS FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2022.
Exceptions to team classification can be made in dire need of filling spaces on each team, and no repeat characters will be selected. It is recommended that you submit numerous different characters that fit either side to give yourself the best chance at a spot. Some characters can be considered for both sides depending on scenario in the anime, so if that's the case we will make a determination for which side based on necessity.
You will be informed of your acceptance no later than TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2022.
THE CHESS MATCH WILL BE SUNDAY MORNING, PLAN YOUR ENTIRES ACCORDINGLY.
All participants are required to sign in no later than 8:00 PM Saturday Night or else they will be replaced.
