The future of AI is here.

The world’s first AI beauty pageant will judge AI-generated contestants competing for the title of “Miss AI.” The competition is the first installment in a program of awards presented by the World AI Creator Awards (WAICA) and its inaugural partner, Fanvue, a subscription platform that hosts AI content.

According to WAICA’s website, the organization is “dedicated to recognising the achievements of AI creators around the world” and the Miss AI pageant will assess contestants “on their beauty, tech, and clout for the chance to earn the Miss AI crown.”

Judges will take into account classic elements of pageantry such as looks, poise and answers to questions, but contestants will also earn points for their technical skill and implementation of AI tools. Lastly, judges will consider contestants' reach on social media, i.e. the rate of audience growth and how they engage with fans on their platforms.

A press release from WAICA notes that the contest “signifies a monumental leap forward — launching almost 200 years after the world’s first ever real life beauty pageant took place in the 1880s.”

The Miss AI panel of judges includes two of the world’s biggest AI creators, Aitana Lopez and Emily Pellegrini. Lopez and Pellegrini are both fully digital personas and have garnered millions of followers and even brand deals. The rest of the panel includes leading pageantry historian Sally Ann Fawcett and marketing guru Andrew Bloch.

The judges will determine a first, second and third place winner with a prize package worth over $20,000 in total. Winners will be announced on May 10 and an online awards ceremony will take place later that month.
