posted on by Gia Manry
AM2, a new convention in Southern California, announced on Wednesday that it will host the United States regional round of the World Cosplay Summit competition for 2011. The winners of the competition will continue on to Nagoya, Japan to compete for the final prizes. The convention (formerly known as Club 2 the Max) will be held in the Anaheim Convention Center during the July 1-3 weekend, roughly the same time as Anime Expo in Los Angeles.
Anime Expo selected the United States contestants for the World Cosplay Summit in 2004 and 2005. The New York Anime Festival then hosted the regional round in 2007, 2008, and 2009. In 2010, San Jose, California's FanimeCon held the contest.
