AirAsia X is the main sponsor of the most anticipated annual convention among Malaysia’s comic artists, illustrators, cosplayers and fans of animation, comics and games, the Comic Fiesta 2016 which will be held this weekend (17 & 18 Dec) at Putra World Trade Centre.

Visitors to the Comic Fiesta 2016 will stand a chance to win free flights to Japan with AirAsia X by simply taking a photo at the AirAsia X photo booth and post it on social media channels (Instagram, Twitter or Facebook) with the hashtag #AirAsiaXComicFiesta. Five lucky winners will be selected and notified via email.

Benyamin Ismail, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia X Berhad said “We received very positive response from our participation as prize sponsor last year. This year, we are happy to return as a main sponsor and we look forward to engage with all the cosplayers, comic and animation fans and join in the creative energy by everyone.”

One of the main highlights that visitors can look forward to is the Cosplay Invitational and Malaysia Comicker’s Challenge, where participants can sign up and showcase their cosplay skills and dress up as their favourite character. Winners for each category will be announced on 18 December 2016 at the Comic Fiesta 2016 and they will stand a chance to win return AirAsia X flights from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei as well as Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo.

Comic Fiesta is Malaysia’s largest and longest-running animation, comics and games (ACG) convention. Tens of thousands of comic artists, illustrators, cosplayers and fans of the culture will gather traditionally every year in December to spread awareness and information as well as furthering the creative industry in the region. The event brings the creative art market to another level by showcasing the largest amateur creative art market in Malaysia with over 100 booths of visual arts, illustrations, self-published comics, artbooks, posters as well as merchandises.

Lim Chin Hwa, President of Comic Fiesta Organizing Committee said, “We’re proud to work together with AirAsia X this year as the presenting sponsor to bring the best out of Comic Fiesta! As one of the biggest and longest running cosplay, animation, comics and games event in Southeast Asia, our partnership with AirAsia X makes it possible to bring a range of new and exciting activities in Comic Fiesta 2016.

Last year, AirAsia X was the prize sponsor for Comic Fiesta 2015 held in The Mines Convention Centre which attracted over 45,000 visitors. AirAsia X gave away flights to winners according to their respective categories for a full cosplay and comic experience in Tokyo and Taipei. Winners who flew to Japan also met renowned production houses and comic artists.
