Profile: Miss Alternative
Happy Anniversary GGotW. I started this little venture four years ago, and am very happy with the way it has turned out.
I thought I'd take a break this week from the normal Features and Profile something a little different. Australia's alternative scene have banned together, something most other areas have a hard time doing, and created a Miss Universe-like pageant. Miss Alternative.
To see all the models click on 2010 Models at the top of their page. You'll see a drop-down menu appear and some letters. For those not familiar with Australia, it's divided up in to six states: NSW (New South Wales), SA (South Australia), Vic (Victoria), QLD (Queensland), WA (Western Australia) and TAS, (Tasmania). Each state has a large slate girls representing it and the voting, which ends September 15th, will help the judges par down the girls for state finals, then in January they all come together in Sydney to crown one as Miss Alternative. I encourage our readers to get out there and help pick your favorite. If you are in Australia, I encourage you to get out to your regional finals and cheer on the contestants, and have a Foster's for me ;)
With nearly $2,500 in prizes and three guaranteed photo shoots to the winner and great prizes for 2nd and 3rd places too, I think Miss Alternative 2010 will be a very happy girl.
I have already Featured one contestant and will be Featuring more in the near future. While it seems like the Miss Alternative contest might be a great source for me to get Features, I don't want Alternative girls in other countries to think I wont be doing any Features on them. I currently have seven interviews in various stages, and am more than willing to take ten or twenty more. If you want to be a Goth Girl of the Week, and be in our own contest, Goth Girl of the Year, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or look at our submission page.
