All Contestants will Compete in the Following Three Areas of Competition:

BEAUTY COMPETITION

This is your time to shine! All contestants will compete in this competition. Contestants will do a simple walk on the stage. The stage will be in the shape of a T crossing at the back. There will be four X’s marked on the stage. Contestants should stop at each X marked on the stage and turn at either all of the X’s or the ones of their choosing. Our emcee will read about them to the audience. All contestants up to age 11 yrs. can wear a short or long dress. Ages 12 yrs. and over should wear a floor length evening gown. NO CUPCAKE STYLE GLITZ DRESSES PLEASE for children please. Stones are allowed on all dresses. We supply the music. Judging will be based on facial beauty, stage presence personality and overall appeal.

Contestants Ages 0-11 years are not permitted to wear any make-up. Clear lip gloss and clear mascara are allowed only. They are not allowed to use false tanning, eyelashes, flippers, falls, wiglets or hair pieces when competing in any of the onstage events. If your child wears braids or hair extensions in their hair as part of their EVERYDAY look that is ok to compete with at East Coast USA. We also understand that some children have medial conditions that require them to wear a hair piece. Please bring this to the attention of the director for assistance. Contestants are checked to make sure they are following the guidelines before they go on-stage.

Time Limit: 1 minute

Group Line Up

Each age division will come onstage together before they compete individually. They will line up across the back of the stage and smile for the judges as they score the beauty side awards. This also gives the judges a chance to access the group as a whole. A parent, sibling or friend of each toddler contestant 0-3 yrs. is allowed on stage with them at all times.

RUNWAY COMPETITION

This is a free style runway modeling event. Attire should be a trendy “boutique” outfit or a high fashion “vogue” look. Choose an outfit that showcases your personality. This is your chance to show the judges your unique style and have fun! The music will be fast and upbeat and we supply the music. Contestants should stop at each X on the stage, strike a pose, turn and/or show some personality! Hand held props may be used. NO stomachs should be visible for children 0-11 yrs. while wearing their runway outfit. Judging will be based on personality, modeling ability and overall appearance. Time Limit: 1 minute

PHOTOGENIC COMPETITION

Photo Sizes: 8-10″ or 8.5-11″ This should be a head shot. It can be black and white or color. You will bring your photo with you to registration with your full name and age on the back. Light make up is allowed by all ages for your head shots. Photos may be lightly retouched, cropped and/or have lighting adjusted. NO “GLITZ” PHOTOS PLEASE.
