Contestants will model age- appropriate attire that has a casual, tailored look. Shorts, slacks, jumpers, capris, skirts and skorts are examples of clothing that may be worn in the Modeling Competition. The outfit shouldn’t be too fancy or elegant, it should be something that you would buy off the rack at a department store. Small rhinestones and bead accents are allowed although they should not take away from the outfit or the contestant.
This is an upbeat and fun event! Turns, hesitations, poses and walks may be used. Please, no Pro-Am modeling such as aerial spins, kicks, or flips. The setting is an upscale department store fashion show.
Contestants’ demeanor should be upbeat and positive, not pouty or demure. Age appropriate makeup may be worn in all age divisions. We will provide music for you.
Modeling performances have a time limit of 45 seconds. At 45 seconds, a timer will sound and the music will fade out. At that time you must stop modeling. No points will be deducted from your score if this occurs. The 45 second limit is enforced so each contestant models for the same amount of time and so we can stay on schedule.
A $150 Sponsor Fee is required for each Modeling entry. Sponsors may be listed under each contestant’s photo in the digital National Program Book for her age group. Modeling fees count toward advertising awards, but no advertising space is given nor do they take the place of the required $1200 Queens’ sponsor fee.
Sponsor Fees, entry fees and all other pageant fees are non-refundable.

DO I HAVE TO DO A TALENT TO COMPETE IN A MAC PAGEANT?
Our talent competition is optional. It is scored by a separate panel of judges than the panel that selects the overall queen in each age division. Optional contests have absolutely no bearing on who wins the pageant.
