World's First 'Miss AI' Competition Announced With $5,000 Cash Prize

The world’s first AI beauty pageant has been announced where AI-generated women can compete to be crowned the digital equivalent of Miss World — with a $5,000 cash top prize.

The “Miss AI” pageant is the first competition to be launched by World AI Creator Awards (WAICAs) — a global program of awards dedicated to recognizing the achievements of AI creators around the world.

Competitors can enter the AI-generated women that they have created for a chance of winning the Miss AI crown.

According to the competition, Miss AI contestants will be judged on their beauty and the skill and implementation of AI tools used to create them, as well as their social media clout as influencers.

These AI-generated women will then be ranked by an expert panel of four judges that includes two of the world’s biggest AI-generated influencers Emily Pellegrini and Aitana Lopez.

There are also two real people on the panel: marketing expert Andrew Bloch as well as head judge of Miss Great Britain and pageant historian Sally-Ann Fawcett.

“Crossing traditional pageantry with technology, the Miss AI contest signifies a monumental leap forward,” head judge Sally-Ann Fawcett tells The Sun.

“And it is launching almost 150 years after the world’s first-ever real-life beauty, pageant took place in the 1880s.

“This year, the Miss Universe organization scrapped the age limit and allowed married women and moms to take part.

“Maybe, over the next few years, they will allow AI contestants to enter too.”

‘Miss AI Recognizes Talent and Tech’

The AI creator crowned Miss AI will receive a $5,000 cash prize as well as access to Imagine Education’s Mentorship Programme worth $3,000 and PR support worth over $5,000. The runner-up and third-placed contestants of the Miss AI competition will also win prizes.

To enter the digital beauty pageant, competitors are required to submit an image of their AI-generated woman. The creators will also need to answer questions ranging from “What would be your one dream to make the world a better place?’ to more information on the technical details of the AI used.

Fanvue, which is organizing the awards, says it expects to receive thousands of entrants to the competition.

The Miss AI contestants will be trimmed down to a “Top 10″ before the final three are announced at an online awards ceremony in May.

“The creator economy is an extremely exciting place to be right now,” Miss AI co-founder Will Monange tells The Sun.

“There’s been exponential growth in AI creators entering the space, and with the help of our platform, growing their fan bases and monetizing content.

“Miss AI recognizes talent and tech which will help to raise standards within the industry.

“It is just one award as part of a program, and we share the vision for the WAICAs to become the Oscars of the AI creator economy.”
