MOTOBLOT Pin-up Contest

MOTOBLOT Pin-up Contest
$1,000 grand prize!

We’re working hard to make this one of the most valuable contests you can enter. We look forward to celebrating the women who achieved so much through pin-up and those that continue to use it as a relevant platform today. Although this is a competitive platform, this year’s contest is offering you more than just a chance to win our grand prize.

All contestants that advance to the online video / on-site contest portion (August 28, 2021 in Chicago) will receive:

  • A customized MOTOBLOT promotional short video shared on YouTube based on their entry submission.
  • High top table space in our MOTOBLOT pin-up booth to promote their work (i.e. connect with fans, sell signed photographs, promote your business). 
  • Free VIP admission for the weekend of activities.
  • Time with our dedicated photographer during the event. 
  • Inclusion in our post event highlights.
  • AND, the chance to win the $1,000 grand prize!

An online submission period and online voting round are held prior to the event to determine our contestants. Onsite judges and attendee votes determine our winner.

This year’s contest involves 3 components.

Submission round: The submission period will close on July 23 at midnight CST or when we have advanced 20 applicants to the online video / on-site round. Whichever comes first. Applicants will be notified of acceptance or be provided guidance on what to resubmit within 72 hours of submission. Our event team will make an assessment based on the criteria: 

  • Completeness and accuracy of the application.
  • Quality of the photographs (posing, style, professionalism) and resolution.
  • Creativity of responses in the video submission, sound quality and resolution.

Online video release: The video and photos of advancing pin-ups will be used by our production team to create a customized MOTOBLOT promotional short video. Contestants do NOT have to create this themselves. All the videos created for the advancing contestants from their submission material will be released on MOTOBLOT’s YouTube channel on the same day (TBD between August 1 and August 13) when they are all completed. Content promoting the event and pin-up contest will be used in several promotional shorts as well. Likes, views and shares of the individual YouTube videos will contribute to each contestant’s final score. Between the release and on-site portion, be sure to use #MOTOBLOTpinup in your social media posts to help us see your online engagement. 

On-site round: The day of the competition is a very exciting one! MOTOBLOT judges (to be announced) will also be employed at each onstage round as well as observing the contestants throughout the day. MOTOBLOT attendees will also be able to vote onsite.

The onstage contest appearances include:

  1. Introduction / style walk: All contestants will be introduced and information from their profile shared. 
  2. Personal commercial: All contestants will be introduced and given 30 seconds to share who they are with our audience. 
  3. MOTOBLOT commercial: The top 5 will be announced. These advancing contestants will then be given 30 seconds to present a mini “best of MOTOBLOT” commercial.
  4. Crowning – Before our headliner, the 2021 MOTOBLOT Pin-up Contest Winner will be announced.
