Cyprus Comic Con: a cultural revolution!
Cyprus Comic Con is an annual, multi-genre convention full of exhilarating pop culture activities, including live performances, cosplay, artist exhibitions, gaming tournaments, panels, a film festival, exclusive shopping, international Special Guest stars and more!
Whether you are an art enthusiast, a movie geek, a dedicated cosplayer, an avid collector, a gamer, a die-hard animanga fan, or simply a bystander curious about the immense diversity of popular culture and its trends, Cyprus Comic Con has something special for you!
The Artists’ Alley is a dedicated space for professional and semi-professional artists to showcase their talent, interact with other creative minds and art enthusiasts, draw commissioned sketches and sell prints, as well as other merchandise of their work.
The Cosplay competitions and parade, are possibly one of Cyprus Comic Con’s biggest attractions, with hundreds of talented cosplayers showcasing their creativity and craftsmanship, as well as their love for their favourite comic book, anime or video game characters. If eligible, the winner of CCC’s EuroCosplay Qualifiers will have the opportunity to represent Cyprus in the EuroCosplay Championships Final in London!
Every year, a number of exciting gaming tournaments take place at Cyprus Comic Con! We are very proud to be able to offer a platform for these community-oriented tournaments, help promote our local gaming communities, as well as connect organisers, media and fans.
Every year, Cyprus Comic Con welcomes an exciting line up of celebrity Special Guests, from all corners of the pop culture spectrum, including film and TV actors, comic book artists, professional cosplayers, musicians and more!
Visitors are given the opportunity to get their precious memorabilia or a personalised photograph signed, as well as chat and take photos and selfies with their favourite guests. Furthermore, a series of panels, workshops and exclusive interviews with the Special Guests are held on both days of the convention, so make sure to check the comic con schedule so as to not miss them!
Panels and Workshops
Each year, a number of fun and educational panels take place at Cyprus Comic Con, featuring Special Guests, filmmakers, professional cosplayers, comic book artists and other creatives. The panels are the perfect opportunity to meet with some of your favourite artists, interact with them and learn about their craft!
Additionally, keep an eye out for the various creative workshops that take place throughout the event, taught by working professionals within the pop culture industry. The workshops offer a one-of-kind, hands-on experience to learn from the very best in their field so we highly recommend that you attend as many of them as possible!
Every year at Cyprus Comic Con a large number of local and international music artists are given the opportunity to perform and showcase their talent on the outdoor stage. If you are a DJ, musician, band or dance group and believe your performance can capture the comic con audience, we want to hear from you!
The Food Court is part of the outdoors festival area, where a careful selection of quality food vendors serve delicious food and refreshing drinks to comic con fans.
The Cyprus Comic Con Film Festival is proud to showcase the creative talent of local, as well as international filmmakers and animators, to a wide and diverse audience. If you have a film or animation project you believe our attendees would enjoy, we would love to help you promote it at our event.
