Ask @pixelmaniaevent:

Is it possible to make changes after joining the event or does the profile have to be complete before joining?

It is possible to edit profile (not application) after sending an application. But the judging started from the very first application, so you have to keep in mind that even if you change it after sending application, it may be too late.

What if you pass the selections, but have to cancel in the end (because of illness, job, personal reasons,...). How much time do you have to let the organisation know and will the place be given to another person so it wouldn't get wasted?

We know that around 25% will dropout. Some of silly reasons like "i didnt plan this thru" and some of serious reason. Shit happens, we know that. If it will be fast enough and there will be free places, then yes, we accept more ppl.
And how much time? As fast as you know you cant come.

How many cosplays should I list that I want to shoot? I have a problem choosing since we only know a few of the locations, can I list all I'd like to shoot and have photographers choose or how does it work?

Mostly cosplayers bring 3 cosplays, but it rly depends on ppl. If you think you can manage more, you can. Also its better to decided which ones, since if u left it to photographers, you will be in a organizing hell.
For the locations, check #pixelmania2k18 on facebook. You woll see most of them there.

Hi, Im photographer and cosplayer too. Can I send registration as both ? If I win as cosplayer - I go as cosplay, if I win as photographer - I can go as photographer. If I win both - I choose later one, what I want more .... is it possible ? I cant find this information in FAQ. .. ? :)

Hello. When you make an account on bookme, you have to choose your profession. Depends on what you choose there, you will be treated as one, when you will make an application. And if you will be accepted as both, you will have to do 'both' job. Not choosing one later.

How strict is it about what cosplays you want to shoot at the event? I have cosplays I would like to make for the event, but what if I list them and don't finish in time?

We know plans change, but try to kep it real. For ex. If you know you have like 10% chance of making cosplay before the event, then its a no no, but if you think u can make it but shit happen, then its ok.

For cosplayers, the application form requires you to list cosplays. Are these cosplays you've made already, or cosplays you want to take to the event (including not finished cosplays)?

In profile edit/making an account it is a question about your cosplays you want to shoot at all. When you go to event -> join, you will have question about cosplays you want to take to pixelmania

I see you opened the applications already, but as a cosplayer, I remember 2 years ago we could put our pictures of our cosplays on the application, now I don't know how it should be... Do we just need to write down what we have? Or should we add links with the pictures?

Hello, there ia a place for this in your profile - portfolio. If you choose edit profile option, go at the bottom and you will see a place to add your photo.
Application will be seen together with a profile for the judges.

Is it up to us as cosplayers to bond with photographers so that they want to shoot us, or are we paired up?

We do not and we never will dare to pair people up. Everyone have their uniqe style and they like different results, so we have prepared booking system, where cosplayer have the possibility to ask photographer for a photoshoot, and opposite.

Can we have a small idea of the criterias of your selections ? :) and if we are not really present on Facebook, are you also searching for peoples on Instagram ^^? Thank you a lot for your answer and your time!

Dorian Lyam Amaury
Unfortunately, we can't say anything about the criteria.
To make an application for the event, you will have to make a profile first, where you will have the place for links to your pages. Profile+application for the event will give us the opportunity to check your work, motivation, and everything important, so you don't need to worry about not being very active on Facebook (its clear as hell we are not ;) ).

Is a car provided or do we have to rent one? Will we have someone who can drive, or do we have to bring an assistant who has a drivers license?

We will have few "taxi"s thanks to our volunteers. But we can't predict how many of them will be available.
We know, from our previous experiences, that its best to come by car (or rent a car in Poland if you come by for example plain), but it is not necessary to enjoy the event, only there will be less option for shootings, or counting on the partner (photographer or cosplayer) with who you will have a photoshoot.
