SPECIAL AWARDS

 

MISS PHOTOGENIC AWARD

 

This is a mandatory competition. Contestants must submit six high-resolution photos on DVD on the first day of Pageant Week. We remind all contestants not to submit photos on USB flash drives, as they will remain the property of the Pageant. Photos will be judged on the clarity of the photo as well as its quality (in the DVD format in which it was submitted—not the quality in which it could be printed). Judges also consider personality, grooming, fashion sense, and the contestant’s photogenic potential and ability.

 

Contestants must wear the B5C sash in all photos under consideration for the Miss Photogenic Award. Photos in which the contestant is not wearing the sash will be disqualified. B5C judges advise that contenders for the award be creative; express personal style in attire, makeup and hair; and adhere to professional standards with proper lighting and aesthetically pleasing backgrounds.

 

B5C’s sponsorship system encourages contestants to seek sponsors for their photo shoot. In past years, most contestants have had their photos taken at no charge because many photographers are eager to offer their services in exchange for the exposure the Pageant provides. B5C allows photographer credits to appear at the right bottom corner of each picture. Pictures submitted to B5C may be used in publications, press releases, marketing campaigns and on contestant pages on the BEAUTIES OF 5 CONTINENTS™ website.

?

SOCIAL MEDIA GENIUS AWARD

 

This is a mandatory competition. As B5C contestants are confirmed, our social media team creates Facebook fan pages for each. These pages are handed over to the contestants’ care a few months before the Gala. Prior to crowning night, B5C will select social media geniuses based on its assessment of the quality, professionalism and engagement displayed in the fan page posts and the pages’ overall management. Please note that this contest is not based on the number of likes the pages receive and is separate from the People’s Choice Award.

MISS CONGENIALITY AWARD

 

The Miss Congeniality Award is bestowed upon delegates who are judged to have displayed the most positivity and genuine enthusiasm of spirit during Pageant Week. Miss Congeniality is an inspiring role model for young women who has positive interactions with all contestants, special guests, the B5C team and other persons she encounters.

 

GOODWILL AMBASSADOR AWARD


The Goodwill Ambassador Award honors the contestants who are deemed to have contributed the most to helping B5C build bridges with global, national and local development agencies. She is also recognized for connecting with sponsors, potential sponsors and interested parties, and for creating awareness of the Pageant and its themes in the outside world. Recipients of the Goodwill Ambassador Award will be crown holders.

FAST-TRACK AWARDS

Fast-track competitions give contestants a great opportunity to shine because the recipients of fast-track awards automatically become Top Sixteen contestants. All fast-track award winners also receive 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals, except for the recipient of the People’s Choice Award, who will be adorned with a crown and sash.

BEST TALENT AWARD

 

This is an optional preliminary competition. Any contestant who wishes to compete for the Best Talent Award should prepare a two-minute presentation showcasing her strongest performance talent. In an effort to give maximum exposure, the top five performers will be asked to entertain on gala night!

 

Common talent category choices include singing, dancing and playing an instrument. Contestants who are unsure whether their talent is appropriate can seek guidance from the B5C team. Remember, no presentation shall exceed two minutes.

 

Talents are scored based on demonstrated skills, costume and appearance, performance/entertainment value and overall impression. Contestants must make all necessary arrangements for any special equipment required. Please note that due to logistical limitations, pianos are not permitted, but performers may use keyboards. While the talent competition is a solo exercise, delegates with similar equipment needs are welcome to share, and those who need on-stage assistance are invited to nominate one partner or helper.

PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD

 

This is a mandatory competition. The winner of the People’s Choice Award is the contestant with the highest number of votes on the B5C website and Facebook page combined. The winner and her tally will be announced at the Crowning Gala. Because of the nature of this competition, the People’s Choice Award is an elevated opportunity for public recognition and self-marketing. The winner will receive a crown and sash.

In order to enter, contestants must provide a high resolution head shot, a biography not exceeding 200 words, and an introductory video of up to two minutes, giving your name, your home city, pertinent biographical details, your reason for entering the pageant and your plans for the future. The video must be in HD quality (that is, 720x1080 resolution) with professional standard lighting and no background noises. Videos should be uploaded to the BEAUTIES OF 5 CONTINENTS™ YouTube Channel. Details about how to access the channel will be provided.

 

When preparation is complete, all requested components—headshot, biography and YouTube link—should be sent to info@BeautiesOf5Continents.com. Contestant biographies will appear on the B5C roster, in publications and press releases, and elsewhere; so ensure that they are well-written. After submissions are made, no changes will be permitted.

 

Although the People’s Choice Award is both a mandatory and fast-track competition that earns the winner a place in the top sixteen, it is independent from the competition for the BEAUTIES OF 5 CONTINENTS™ titles—that is, the winner of the award will not have a corresponding score counted toward her overall pageant tally.

POSITIVE BODY IMAGE AWARD (Swimsuit)

 

This is a mandatory preliminary competition, alternately called the swimsuit competition.

 

Contestants will select a two-piece swimsuit and a pair of high heels. Swimsuits can be traditional, or they can reflect the active wear trend as long as they consist of a short top and a short bottom. Accessories such as glasses, hats, jewelry, etc., are welcome. Judges will score according to physical appearance including complexion and skin tone, poise, display of energy and charisma, expression of confidence and composure, and overall presentation and impression.


MISS SPORTS AWARD

 

This is a mandatory preliminary competition. The Miss Sports Award winner is chosen for her strength, agility, endurance, flexibility and display of sportsmanship and ethical conduct during B5C’s line-up of sporting activities, which will be announced at a later date. Contestants are reminded to bring fitness wear for this portion of the competition.

 

TOP MODEL AWARD


This is a mandatory competition. The Top Model Award is conferred on outstanding contestants for their catwalk confidence and presence during preliminaries and the entirety of Pageant Week.

OUTSTANDING AMBASSADOR AWARD

The Outstanding Ambassador Award is reserved for past delegates who are good role models for young woman and show a long-term commitment to the B5C legacy beyond their own pageant year. Recipients are congenial in their participation in pageant-related activities and have positive interactions with contestants, the B5C team, guests and others they encounter. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medal winners in this category will be honored on stage on gala night and recognized in the program book, both in print and virtually.

OTHER COMPETITIONS

On-stage questions will be posed to Top Sixteen and Top Five finalists.

 

At BEAUTIES OF 5 CONTINENTS™ we understand that while pageants are pleasurable experiences, the combination of stiff competition and near-and-dear personal aspirations can lead to fear, stress and anxiety. We try to keep stressors to a minimum during the on-stage interview by eliminating the advent of surprise questions. Top Sixteen finalists will be asked questions based on their 200-word bios. Top Five finalists will be provided with representative sample questions prior to entering the interview.

 

The objective of the interview is to evaluate contestants’ capacity for thinking on their feet and responding ad lib. Crown holders must demonstrate their ability to answer general interest questions that may reference but are not limited to current local, regional and global issues and events.

 

Scoring is based on overall impressions, whether contestants provide in-context answers, whether contestants show that they can handle the pressure of communicating with a large audience, and whether judges believe young people will find their personas relatable, knowledgable and influential.
