The winner of this optional round will be judged to be the ‘most photogenic.’ This is the perfect opportunity to show how natural you are infront of the camera!

All entries into the photogenic competition are invited to submit two photographs for judging.



Beautifully Inspiring Ambassador

Beautifully Inspiring is the perfect way to describe the Pageant Girl finalists. Our organisation challenges & breaks down the stereotype that is associated with pageantry – we encourage our finalists to make amazing new friends & memories. Raising money for charity & making public appearances is not a compulsory part of this pageant but we know that many of our finalists have done so! Since 2012, Pageant Girl Ltd has raised over £500,000 for charities that we support (Together for Short Lives, The Christie and Claire’s House).


The Beautifully Inspiring Ambassador Award has been created to recognise what it means to YOU to be a Pageant Girl. To enter this award, you will be required to submit:

  • Up to 750 words answering the question ‘How are you Beautifully Inspiring?’

The top 5 will be shortlisted by Holly Pirrie (director of Pageant Girl Ltd) and they will have a short interview with Holly on the day of the grand finals.
