1) The terrain may only be entered and left via the official entrance and exit. Instructions of our personnel need to be followed. Both campers and caravans are allowed at the terrain. You need to share a caravan longer than 5 meters with someone else. When you place a tent with it, you need to share the caravan with three or four people. This is the same with tents of the same size.

2) The public transport law is applicable on both fields and the maximum speed is at a walking pace. The visitor’s terrain has a paved ring road where stopping is prohibited. When a participant has to (off)load, he/she has to park the car beside the road. Entrance to the terrain with a vehicle is only allowed at arrival and departure of the participant at CampZone during our opening hours. Offloading purchases is prohibited. Only under one condition is it allowed to park a vehicle on the visitor’s terrain: the vehicle is used and installed for working computer equipment. This vehicle may not be moved during the event; whenever a car leaves the terrain, it can’t enter again until the end of the event. These vehicles need to be reported to the organization to get a sticker to be put on the vehicle.

3) Parking your vehicle is for your own risk.

4) Whenever a participant is denied access to the terrain, whatever the reason, he or she won’t get a refund.

5) Shortly before the start of CampZone, you will receive a unique check-in code. You can activate this code from your home or you can activate it at the event. Participants younger than 18 years old need to activate the code at home, because their parents or guardian need to give authorization.

6) You can sell your unique check-in code at any time before the event starts, without an extra administration fee. However, you can only sell the check-in code when it isn’t activated. Activated check-in codes can’t be sold! Also, rented items such as tents, tables and chairs can’t be sold through.

By repeated violation of this rule, seizure of the speakers or removal from the event without a refund will follow.

4) Every participant can use as many space as he/she wants. This arrangement will create the real CampZone atmosphere. We do however still have demands for the usage of square meters. We decided that five square meters for one person is more than enough (including table, tent and sleeping place!). This is no determined limit, you surely can use some more if it is reasonable. Keep in mind that you will take the risk that you can be declined, be moved or be removed from the terrain. The organization always makes the final decision.

2) Participants that want to stay in materials that are not used as standard camping equipment are placed under the following rules. Before the event starts, the participant must have a written authorization from the organization if the materials are allowed on the terrain. Organization can reject without reason. The participant needs to bring his own plates, which the participant must use to create a subsurface. The participant is always responsible for ALL damage that comes with placement and taking away of the materials. The portable cabin or trailer needs to be placed on a place pointed out by the organization. Portable cabins and trailers can only be brought in between 10:00 and 18:00.

General rules for tournaments organized by Duh-Events.

V6.0 – Last edited on 17-09-2020.

1 Registration, names, team setup and substitutes

In order to be able to take part in a tournament, players need to have access to a legal version of the relevant game and an account on the correct client. Players also need a ticket for the event that gives them the right to participate in tournaments.


Players need to always be recognizable by the admins, referees, organisation and opponents. Therefore, a player is required to use a nickname (almost) identical to the name that they signed up with. This name has to be used in-game as well as on the used communication services (for example: Discord). The organisation keeps the right to deny participation in case of offensive nicknames.


Participants need to register on the tournament platform prior to the event. Participants have to confirm their participation with the tournament admin 30 minutes prior to the tournament. Visitor passes do not allow you to participate in tournaments, unless otherwise specified. Participants of BYOC tournaments are expected to bring their own working PC, laptop or game console, including the latest version of the game. Instructions for signing up can be found on the relevant tournament page. 


In case of teamgames, teams are expected to have the correct amount of players for the tournament. Before the tournament starts, the team needs to be completely listed and registered on the tournament platform. Substitutes are not allowed, unless otherwise specified. Changing the line-up isn’t allowed unless otherwise specified by the tournament admin. As a player, it is not allowed to play for multiple teams in the same tournament.

2 Hardware, software and game updates

All software has to be up to date. Unless otherwise specified in the game-specific regulations, all games will be played through the event’s servers on the latest patches. When a player cannot join the game and/or server because they did not update/or have the correct software, the game will result in a forfeit-loss. The maximum number of points will be awarded to the opponent.


In case of tournaments that are being played on devices made available by the organisation, it will be listed if your own gaming gear is allowed. In case of own gaming gear being allowed, the player is responsible for a correct set up; pausing a match because of errors with your own gaming gear isn’t allowed.

3 Communication before and after the game

All communication with the admin will go through Discord and the dedicated tournament pages. Keep a close eye on the tournament Discord channel for announcements and/or changes in the tournaments. Players always need to be present in the Discord-channel of the games they wish to participate in. If not, this can result in a forfeit loss. 


In all situations, players have to behave professionally and sportsmanlike towards others. This is even more important for the games that are played on stage and the games that are streamed. Misconduct; such as trashtalking, scolding, discrimination and aggression, both within and outside of the game, to others or the crew, will not be tolerated. Violation of this rule will result in sanctions and may lead to disqualification. During the match the chat will not be used, other then greetings/gg and if connection problems occur. The team chat can be used, if present. 


Each player or team captain needs to be present 15 minutes before the match begins so that games can be created and start at the right time. If a player is not present at the match time, the admin has to be notified. When a player still has not shown up 15 minutes after match time, it will result in a forfeit loss and the maximum score will be assigned to the opponent. Additionally, the team will get a warning. This rule also applies if you are in a match of a different tournament; participating in multiple tournaments simultaneously is done at your own risk.


If one team can look at the other team’s screens, this should be taken care of by the players before the game starts. Tournament admins and crew of the event are not responsible for this issue.


If a player needs to pause due to technical difficulties, the team has to communicate this to the other team. If both teams agree that the game is paused, it’s necessary to inform the tournament admin as well. After this, both teams will wait until the technical difficulties are solved. Pausing without good reason will result in a sanction. If the reconnecting player(s) joins the wrong side, it will result in a winning round for the other team. Resuming the game will commence after approval of the tournament admin.


Playing a draw during the bracket phase means that you have to play another map/round. You and your opponent will choose one map. If a player is making a draw on purpose, the admins can disqualify the player. In certain games these rules don’t apply.


The organisation will always have the right to deny someone to certain parts of the event.

4 Cheating, forbidden items and penalties

Any form of cheating will result in exclusion from all of the tournaments. Cheating includes, but is not limited to; bug abusing, use of 3rd-party software and/or hacks (Wall-hack, speed-hack, aimbot, etc.), scripts (E.G bunny hopping script), binds (exceptions are Namebinds, Demo Scripts, Screenshot scripts, Server control scripts, weapon menu scripts and say binds) and changes to the game files (excluding settings changeable in-game). Customizing the GUI is also seen as forbidden and will be punished the same as any other form of cheating.


The use of not freely available performance-enhancing drugs is strictly prohibited with the exception of substances required for medical reasons.


For small violations, the offender will get a “Caution”. Two “Cautions” equal a warning.

A “caution” will, among others, be handed out when a team is:

  • +5 minutes late for a match
  • makes illegitimate use of a pause
  • behaves unsportsmanlike during streamed games or games on stage


For bigger violations, the offender will get a warning. Two warnings will result in disqualification. A warning will, among others, be handed out when a team is:

  • +10 minutes late for a match
  • knowingly makes illegitimate use of a pause to gain an advantage
  • Disregards decision made by the referee
  • behaves blatantly unsportsmanlike to opponents, visitors or crew


If it is discovered after a match that a team violated one of these rules then the organisation reserves the right to punish a team retroactively, including giving prizes to a different team.

5 Scores and match media

Players can submit the scores themselves in our tournament system. When both teams have submitted/confirmed the score, the system will automatically follow up on this. When in doubt you can always talk to an admin to confirm the score for you. 


During the tournaments, players are obligated to record demos and take screenshots. This to prevent not being able to prove punishable acts. The organization holds the right to publish these demos and screenshots. When there is no match media available the decision will be based on what the tournament-admin/referee was able to determine themselves.


In case of a disagreement in regards to the match scores, the match-media will determine the result.

6 Streaming of matches

You are allowed to stream your own team’s gameplay. If your stream shows gameplay that is not your own from an ongoing match you will be disqualified. Observing streamers that have made an arrangement with the organization must make sure they stream with a delay of at least 10 minutes and that none of the gameplay from the current match is visible to playing participants.

7 Observers

Only admin/referee-approved observers are allowed to spectate a match in-game. Admins have the right to kick unaccepted spectators.

8 Changes to the tournament

The organization has reserved the rights to adjust the prizes that were originally assigned to a tournament. Admins and organisation members will at all times have the final say on anything regarding the tournament. Under extreme circumstances the admins will have the right to change the ruleset. Both admins and organisation have the authority to stop or cancel the tournament.

General Regulations for cosplay competitions organized by Duh-Events.

V1.1 – Last edited on 27-10-2022


Walk on/Walk off:


  • Registration for this competition is free for everyone. Registrations will only be rejected if the organization feels that the cosplay has not been created by the participating cosplayer, if the form has been filled in incompletely or if the cosplay is irrelevant to the show. 
  • The cosplay competition uses one category with a first, second and third prize winner. This category includes a Walk on/Walk off show with the theme General Gaming/Geek.
  • Use of your own audio/video material is not possible with this contest. The organization will support the show by using a themed audio track.
  • The cosplay which you register with must be made by yourself.
  • Leading up to the start of the cosplay contest the judges will take a closer look at all the costumes for an extensive quality check backstage. No decisions will be made about potential winners yet, this will happen during the show itself. The time at which the pre-judging will take place will be communicated to all participants well in advance.
  • It is strictly forbidden to carry weapons (authentic, replica, or model weapons). Cosplay weapons are allowed as long as it is only used as part of the cosplay and as long as it is obvious that this is a prop. Cosplay weapons must be following the Dutch Weapons Act.
  • As long as your costume hasn’t won a prize during a previous Duh-Events cosplay competition or during another major competition (read: a competition with a decent cash prize of more than €100, a qualification for an international competition, or a big international competition), you’re allowed to participate with this costume.
  • We offer the option to get dressed backstage. There will be spaces available including mirrors for both men and women. Here you can also safely leave your belongings during the competition.
  • It’s always annoying when your cosplay breaks, so we will offer the cosplayers the opportunity to perform quick repairs if the schedule and time allow it. We try to be as prepared as possible, but can’t guarantee that we have the materials to be able to repair any defect. If you want to be sure, bring your own repair tools
  • Judging and rating your costume will be based on a few points, determined by the current panel of judges. The most common points are general quality, execution of the show, finishing of details, and faithfulness to the source material.
  • Cosplayers are free to make their cosplay as ‘’crazy’’ as possible. If necessary, we will help you on stage.
  • A costume may not be a danger to the general safety of yourself or other people. No nude, obscene, or offensive costumes. We want to keep the contest and the time at the venue for the participating cosplayers as pleasant as possible.
  • The format in which we hold the competition is a ’Walk on/ Walk off Catwalk performance’. One by one the cosplayers will show off their costume on stage.
  • The cosplayers are free to decide on the interpretation they want to give to their moment in the spotlight. There is no time for complete acts, so keep this in mind.
  • We organize gaming events, so we recommend basing your cosplay on gaming/geek culture. We will generally disapprove of cosplays from portraying an OC or fan art.
  • The announcement of the winners and the award ceremony will take place as soon as the judges have made a decision. This is usually half an hour after the show has closed, but there’s no fixed time attached to this.
  • During pre-judging, it’s desirable to let the judges do their thing with the cosplayer they’re judging at that time. Sabotage and/or disruptive actions will be disapproved of and in the worst case can lead to disqualification. Give them all the room they need.

  • Participants may use 30 seconds to make the stage ready for their performance. After performing you’ve got 30 seconds to leave the stage (including taking the placed accessories).

  • The judges may always request a re-enactment of an act when there is doubt about a cosplayer, or when no decision can be made.
  • The rating of the participants will be based on the 1 to 10 system for all rateable components.
  • The winners of the Cosplay Acts Contest will be determined by this overall rating.
  • Decisions in case of a tie will be made based on the sum of the assigned scores.
    a) In case of a tie, the cosplayer with the highest score in performance will be crowned the winner.
    b) If a tie still exists after this, the highest score given at the costume confection/finishing point will be the deciding factor.
    c) If a tie still exists after this, the organization of the event will determine what score counts. This all counts for every other place when no decision can be made by the judges.
