As we previously announced in our Cosplay Mania ’11 post, the folks over at Cosplay Mania held a photography contest which the Cosplay Gen staff got to judge. The decision was pretty a tough one to make, considering there were a lot of great photos among the 20 contestants who submitted their photos, but in the end we managed to select 3 winners out of them! We’re proud to announce that the first place winner will be featured on a two-page spread in Cosplay Gen #05!

Check out all the winners below:
