peta2's Cutest Vegan Alive 2013 contest will be broken down into three rounds: entry, voting to help decide the finalists, and voting to help decide winners. You can enter the contest during the entry round only.
peta2 will consider three factors in choosing finalists and winners:
- The total number of votes that you receive
- The enthusiasm that you demonstrate in promoting your entry
- peta2's assessment of the cuteness of your photo
All entries must be submitted by 12 noon ET on April 22, 2013. At 12 noon ET on April 25, 2013, voting will open to the public to help peta2 determine the finalists. Voting in the entry round closes at 12 noon ET on May 16, 2013 and we’ll announce the top 20 finalists—the top 10 vote-getters (five guys and five girls) as well as the top 10 "judges' picks" (five guys and five girls), which will be determined by a peta2 panel—by 12 noon ET on June 3, 2013. At that time, a new round of voting will begin, in which people will vote on the finalists to help peta2 decide on the winners. The final voting round will end at 12 noon ET on June 24, 2013.
On July 1, 2013, the winners (one dude and one lady) will be announced!
The winners (one dude and one lady) will each receive a professional photo shoot and the chance to appear in a peta2 ad!
Other contest guidelines include the following:
- Only residents of the United States are eligible.
- All entrants must be between 13 and 21.
- The contest is not open to finalists or winners of previous Cutest Vegetarian Alive contests run by peta2.
- The entrant must be vegan.
Pictures must feature only the contestant, be appropriate (nothing too scandalous!), and be sharp and in focus. Don't submit fuzzies—we want to see your cute faces! By submitting a photo, you warrant that you own or have the right to distribute the photo for this purpose and that you grant peta2 rights to the photo.
Entrants should not be celebrities. If you've won your hometown's beauty pageant or have appeared in your local firefighters' calendar, you still qualify. But if you regularly appear in teen magazines, we respectfully ask that you step out of the spotlight for this contest.
- No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law.
