Here at The Hero Studio we've always been about the community experience of cosplay; whether it's hosting workshops, meeting many talented people at conventions or partnering with community groups, we always done our best to help foster cosplay in Australia.
We love our job so much, and now we want to turn our attention to helping others grow their cosplay careers. From casual hobbyists to full fledged professionals, we know how important social media reach and engagement is to cosplayers who are trying to build an online profile.
We're proud to introduce our new Studio Social program. Each month we'll engage with followers through our Facebook page to promote a randomly selected cosplayer for the month. This opportunity includes:
- A $50 Hero Studio gift card that can be used to facilitate a giveaway on social media channels
- A featured spot on our homepage slideshow with a direct link to socials, website or online portfolio
- Promotion through The Hero Studio Facebook and Instagram accounts (4,952 followers collectively and growing every single day!)
Interested in this opportunity? On the 20th of every month we'll be posting a Studio Social call out to our Facebook page here. All you need to do is:
- Share a link to either your cosplay Facebook page or your cosplay Instagram account in the comments
- Like the post and follow our Facebook page
A new cosplayer will be randomly selected and announced on the 1st of each month.
The Hero Studio gift card is awarded to the selected cosplayer under the strict terms that it must be used in the form of a giveaway. This giveaway must be conducted via a social media account (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc) associated with said cosplayer within 28 days of receiving the gift card. The cosplayer is responsible for setting the terms of this giveaway, however these terms must align with the user policies of their selected social media account.
Any social media posts made by the cosplayer to promote the giveaway must mention and 'tag' The Hero Studio by name.
From the selected cosplayer The Hero Studio requires high resolution images to share to both our social media and website. The cosplayer MUST gain permissions from all associated photographers before supplying these images, and provide names and social media/website links to each photographer so that we may add them to our Attribution page.
Each cosplayer who is selected through the Studio Social program must note that such a selection is not an endorsement and does not mean the cosplayer is now an employee of The Hero Studio.
The Hero Studio reserves the right to change or cease the Studio Social program at any time.
This month's featured Studio Social cosplayer is the extremely talented Giorgia Costumes. With cosplays ranging from anime to video games to pop culture icons, her variety of projects is a delight to see on our social media feed. if you aren't already following her make sure you do, she'll be hosting a $50 Hero Studio gift card giveaway during March.
