BIKINI MODEL

Bikini Model Category

The Bikini Model Category is one of our most popular divisions due to broad range of media exposure on offer through our Natural Bodz Media network. Many of the Cover Models featured on Natural Bodz Magazine, and in the Sports Model International Calendar competed in our previous years events. Their images were captured at the official Natural Bodz Media day which is open to all competitors of the Asia Pacific event. The category has an array of classes including the Newcomers Class. This provides a good starting point for competitors competing for their first time, or new to our organization.

OVERVIEW OF THE BIKINI MODEL CATEGORY

Bikini Models are to depict “A Picture of Health” to the general public however they must still have some athleticism about themselves. Models are not expected to be lean and defined though they must still have a toned body and good figure. Models are judged on their physical appearance, beauty, body shape and tone, presentation, confidence, cat walk, stage presence and marketability.


Bikini Model Classes

The Bikini Model category will be broken into the following divisions:

  • Newcomers Division:– NEW in 2017
    This division is targeted to those who are entering their first Bikini competition or those that are within their first 12 months of competing. The division may be split into height or age classes based on competitor numbers.
  • Junior (22 years and under as at 1st Jan)
  • Novice (has not won in this or the Open division)
  • Open
  • Classic (30 years and over as at competition day)
  • Pro League Fitness Model (See this link)

All divisions may be split further by height classes (ie. short, medium, tall) subject to final competitor numbers which will be known after the official registration. Competitors will be advised at the competitor briefing date and time TBA.

Competitors can enter in to more than one division ( ie. Junior and Open or Novice and Open etc..) if they desire, subject to the division age and applicable entry fees.

Note: Novice & Junior divisions will not perform individual walks in either Rounds 1 or 2, rather they will come on collectively in each respective group where by comparisons and half turns will be performed. Open & Classic divisions will perform individual cat walks in Rounds 1 and 2 prior to group comparisons and half turns.


Judging Rounds for Bikini Model

There will be two rounds in the Bikini Model category and this will comprise of a:

Swimwear Round & Themed Wear Round, and in both instances Bikini Models will be equally judged (50/50) on each of these rounds. No routines are required.

BODY SHAPE,TONE AND OVERALL BEAUTY 40%

Our expert panel will be looking for fit, feminine contestants who display proper shape and symmetry combined with overall body tone and beauty. Keep in mind this is not a bodybuilding or figure contest, so extreme muscularity and definition will be negatively scored.

POISE, POSTURE, CATWALK AND PRESENTATION   30%

Our expert panel will be looking for contestants who have great stage presence and a very marketable look for fitness modeling.

APPAREL – COORDINATION, FIT AND STYLING 30%

Our expert panel will be looking for contestants who best compliment the apparel they are modeling includes fit, color, and styling of Bikini along with choice of Theme wear and how it complements the athletes body shape, skin, hair and overall look.

Important Note for Female Fitness Models:
As the Asia Pacific Event prides itself for its class and professionalism; it is important that Bikini Models do not portray themselves on stage as anything less. Females are to ensure when standing on stage or performing their half turns to the front and rear of the stage that their feet remain together without excessive arching of the back. Provocative and sexual stances/facial expressions/gestures will be mark down.

CATWALK

Open and Classic divisions will be required to do an individual catwalk either as a T walk or Spotlight walk across the stage (type of walk will be determined based on the final competitor numbers) in each round. At a set point on stage Models will take a moment to pose, do either a quarter or half turn and move either to the next set point on stage (if-T walk) and do the same or move to the rear of stage and commence the formation of a line-up.

Once each competitor has performed their individual walk each line-up of competitors will be asked to move forward for the comparisons to occur.

For the comparisons competitors will be asked to perform half turns, facing front of stage straight on then facing the rear of the stage. This may occur several times as you’re being judged and the judges may need extra time to finalise their scoring. (Note: No moves or stances of any sexual or erotic nature will be tolerated.)

Novice & Junior divisions will not perform individual walks, rather they will come on collectively in each respective group where by comparisons and half turns will be performed. 


THE JUDGING PANEL

An expert Judging Panel for the Fitness Model Categories will be made up of professionals from within the fitness, fashion and health industry such as Modelling Agents, Professional Fitness and Fashion Photographers, Talent Scouts and Fashion Industry Members, as well as some Internationally Recognized fitness Celebrities.

AUDIENCE FAVORITE/POPULARITY AWARD

Every ticket holder of the event will receive 1 voting card on entry in which they will write (contestant number) their choice for first place female. Voting cards will be placed in allocated ballot boxes in the venue.
