Members of local press and online media were invited last August 20 at Restaurant 9501 at the ELJ Communications Center for the media launch of this year's Hero Face - Off competition. For its fifth year, Hero TV teams up with professional events management firm Primetrade Asia to bring this year's competition at Best Of Anime (BOA) 2014

The press launch started with the unveiling of the official presentation videos for both events. In presence for the media launch is Hero TV channel head Jojo Estacio, Primetrade president Irene Lloren, Pbb Big Winner & Anime Jock Myrtle Sarrosa and Hero Face - Off 2013 champion & World Cosplay Summit Philippines (WCSPH) 2013 representative Erika Garbin. 

"Join and join competitions. The more you try, the more you build-up
your confidence to enjoy and have fun with your cosplay" - Erica Garbin
Myrtle started the panel with her announcement that she will be one of the judges for this year's competition alongside giving advice for those who are joining in. Erica then shares her experiences on winning last year's Face - Off and her experience of competing at WCS last year. 

Another change from last year's competition is the opening of Filipino and Western cosplays into the mix. Contestants will now have their absolute freedom in choosing from Japanese Manga and Anime, to Western and Filipino comic characters. 

"Anyone can wear a costume but it's different to cosplay so know your character.
Love your character" - Myrtle Sarrosa as she explains the
difference between a costumer and a cosplayer
"We hope to level up every year. All of our guests are very good in their own right. We will make sure that we will surprise you every year", said Primetrade president Irene Lloren about what to expect in BOA now and in the near future. Aside from this, she stated that they are currently working on a possible gaming event but still details are not available at this time.
