Oz Comic-Con was first introduced to Australia in 2012. Since then, Australia's answer to Comic-Con has grown into an epic nerd fest to celebrate all "geek" - sci-fi, gaming, movie and television trends, comics and pop culture every winter at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre (MCEC).

This is the ultimate weekend for Cosplayers, some of which spend all year perfecting their ultimate dress-up ahead of the two-day super celebration.

Oz Comic-Con plays host to the Australian Championships Of Cosplay, the most prestigious costume contest in Australia, presented by Spotlight and Brother. It is the first stop in the 'Quest For The Crown', a global competition that will see the overall Australian winner representing Australia at the 2020 C2E2 Championships of Cosplay in Chicago.

For convention goers who aren't into the Cosplay scene, fear not. Attendance in costume is not mandatory, although it is a lot of fun if you attend under the guise of your much-loved character.

Conventioners are invited to meet n' greet or listen to panel talks with well-known stars in the film, television, gaming and comic industry.

Confirmed guests for Melbourne so far include Shadowhunters actors Dominic Sherwood and Alberto Rosende, also welcoming local and international comic book artists Dean Rankine (The Simpsons, Rick And Morty, Futurama ), Nicola Scott (Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman) and Carla Wyzgala (Hidden Door Comics).

There is an opportunity to immerse yourselves in the Gaming Zone, get involved in out-of-this-world activations, and the chance to purchase exclusive merchandise that can't be bought anywhere else.
