Since we have a limited schedule for the contest we reserve the chance to do a prejudging. If it is necessary to do it the prejudging will be set right after the regristration deadline and a chosen jury will take a closer look and decide which participants will enter the final contest on stage. We will inform you if the prejudging takes place and who will be in the final round.
We assume that the host may ask you some questions regarding your costume. The more information you deliver the easier for the host to prepare questions to which you know the answers. We want to make you looking great on stage, not embarrass you.
