Purpose of the contest
- The Kawaii contest is an individual fashion contest, intended for Japanese fashion fans (especially Harajuku) which focuses on a “cute” aspect. Participants are committing themselves to follow the theme.

- It is possible to participate to both contest Kawaii and Kakkoii, since they will take place on a different day.
- The outfit can be bought or handmade.
- Cosplays are forbidden. The aim is to show your own sense of style, not to be dressed as someone else.
- The candidate has 1 minute 30 seconds on stage maximum.
- He must present a small show: dance, singing, both or other.
- It is forbidden to throw objects or dirty the stage, think about the next person!
- The judges’ marks are classified.
- The outfit and the show must be adapted to all kinds of audiences. In case of doubt, please write to [email protected]
- In the case of a breach (troll, registration only to have a free entrance, …) the participant may be hardly sanctioned at the discretion of the committee.
