We love our cosplayers and want to make your experience at Anime NYC even more memorable!

Want to stage a Dragon Ball brawl? Want a Sailor Moon reunion? Fill out this form to have your cosplay meetup or photoshoot promoted by Anime NYC! This year, we’re giving you – our fans – the power in what cosplay photoshoots are included at Anime NYC, and we’ll be sharing all approved meetups on our website, program guide, and the app so cosplayers across Anime NYC can attend!

Before you apply, please read all the information below…

  • If you’re submitting a cosplay photoshoot, it means you’re raising your hand to organize it. This submission form isn’t for general ideas. Instead, it’s for cosplayers or cosplay photographers who actively plan to lead their own meetup at this year’s Anime NYC.
  • The Javits Center is a big place, but we have one official photoshoot area – the South Concourse. This is a large glass-enclosed lobby between our main lobby and our panel hall. This is the only officially approved area for group photoshoots at Anime NYC. If you’d like your event listed, you must hold it in the South Concourse.  (See map below!) If you plan on holding a photoshoot somewhere else in the Javits, we can’t officially list it.

After you submit your meetup, our team will review your application and reach out to you if we have any questions. Accepted meetups will typically be listed within 7 days of being submitted. If you have any questions, please contact

The last day to submit meet-ups is October 7th!
