Once your submission & payment are completed, your entry will appear below with a placeholder image. Photos will be hidden until voting goes live at 12am CT on the day voting opens.
Photo Eligibility & Basic Entry Guidelines
⭐️ Your photo(s) must have been taken within the past 18 months.
⭐️ Your photo(s) must not have previously won a paid Photogenic Miss contest (runner-up photos can be re-entered).
⭐️ Entry fees are non-refundable.
⭐️ Your age division is determined automatically by your age as of January 1st, 2018.
⭐️ You must provide your correct name, email, US mailing address (prizes cannot be shipped internationally), and birthdate. You are responsible for keeping your address up-to-date in your account.
Popular Miss Voting
The optional Popular Miss competition is included free with your entry. Share the link to this page with friends & family and on social media during the voting period and you could win this title which comes with a full Queen's prize package. We do double-crown this title so you can win both your division title and the Popular Miss title.
⭐️ 1 vote per IP address per day will be allowed.
⭐️ Paid-for votes are not allowed. Be weary of services that claim they are undetectable because we have detected these on several contests. All paid-for votes will be disqualified.
⭐️ Offering a prize in exchange for votes is not allowed. Please report if you see a prize or raffle-type contest being offered to anyone who votes. If a contestant or contestant's representative are found to be offering a prize an incentive for votes, she will be disqualified from Popular Miss.
⭐️ The photo that receives the highest number of votes will win the Popular Miss title and prize package.
⭐️ Sharing on social media is allowed and welcome, but buying votes or paying a voting service is not. We do audit votes and are able to detect vote buying systems, even those that claim they are not detectable. We will disqualify and remove these votes from totals and, if necessary, remove a contestant who uses vote purchasing companies.
Scoring - N/A for this contest
⭐️A panel of judges (number of judges varies month to month) will score each photo on a scale of 1-10 in 3 categories: Photogenic Appeal, Photo Quality & Clarity, Personality
⭐️ Each judge's scores will be totaled and each photo will receive a score between 3 & 30. Each judge's total score for each photo will be averaged. The photo that receives the highest total average score will win the Division's title and prize package. In the event of a tie, the judges will be asked to vote for their pick as a tie-breaker. If there is still a tie, an additional judge will be brought in for a tie-breaking vote.
⭐️ Your scores will be available privately in your account after the contest closes.
