Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant
p.m. Saturday, April 29, 2017
The Eighteenth Annual Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant
is open to any qualified attending female member of the 2017 Treklanta
who is at least 18 years of age and who agrees to abide by the rules of
this contest as posted here, now and in the future. There is
NO registration fee nor any additional cost to participate.
Membership in or affiliation with any Klingon-oriented organization (i.e.,
KAG, KLAW, etc.) is not required.
in the 2017 Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant will be judged in
three separate categories. They include:
--- Contestants will be judged on the quality and professionalism
of their costumes, make-up and "modeling." Contestants may
assume the identity of any Klingon female character from any incarnation
of Star Trek or any original Klingon persona of their own
creation. Contestants will be asked to walk a runway in their
Klingon persona. Poise, grace and the authenticity of her
persona will be the criteria for judging.
"Talent" --- Contestants will be allowed NO MORE THAN
FIVE MINUTES to demonstrate a talent or skill. Contestants
may sing, dance, act, perform or make any other type of presentation
that demonstrates a talent or skill so long as the presentation
does not endanger herself, other contestants, the master of ceremonies,
the judges or the audience. (In other words, no flaming bat'leth
twirling, etc.) Contestants are encouraged but not required
to present a Klingon-themed talent or skill. Originality and
the authenticity of her persona will be the criteria for judging.
Contestants must disclose to the Treklanta staff their talent act
intentions prior to the convention for planning purposes, but such
information will be kept strictly confidential. Audio, video
or other technical equipment needed for a specific talent presentation
can usually be provided with sufficient advance notice.
"Personality" --- Each contestant will either be asked a
question to which she must respond. Contestants who dodge,
avoid or refuse to answer the question will be disqualified.
The authenticity of her answer or performance, and of her persona,
will be criteria for judging.
