The Ursa Major Coordinate Contest will take place during the Holiday Ball in the Imperial Ballroom. Participants may sign up using this form before the convention, or at the Info Desk located at lobby level any time before contestant call-time. At call time during the ball, contestants will line up and walk to show off their coordinate before voting/judging commences.

Prize information coming soon!


This year, rather than having everyone dress to a specific theme, participants may choose between multiple contest categories! Contestants may select up to two categories to compete in, but may only place once overall.

The categories are:

  • Best Dressed Couple

  • Coziest

  • Best Handmade

  • Best Accessories

  • Most Intricate Hairstyle

  • Most OTT (Over the Top)

At call-time during the ball, contestants will line up and walk to show off their coordinate before the voting and judging begins. Everyone will walk exactly once, even if they are entering multiple categories. Those entering the "Couples" category will be asked to walk together. As part of their walk, they may still pose separately.


  • Admittance to the Holiday Ball is limited to attendees aged 18 or older. As such, only attendees 18 or older may participate in the Coordinate Contest.

  • Outfits must be recognizable as J-fashion

  • NO cosplay or costumes

  • NO replicas

  • Participants must have either a Saturday single day badge or a full weekend badge for Ursa Major in order to attend the Holiday Ball and enter the contest. To purchase a convention badge, click here.
