FOGA Competition

Rules & Guidelines

  1. The 5 winners of the competition must exude confidence, understanding the values of our brand and the responsibilities that come with the title. They should possess the ability to articulate their ambitions, demonstrating authenticity, credibility, and grace under pressure. The competing models embody the modern, global aspirations shared by men and women alike.
  2. Each competition kicks off with preliminary interviews, featuring creative costume or athletic wear presentations, as well as an evening outfit walk. These preliminary events are crucial as they serve as the initial opportunity for judges and fans to truly get to know the delegates.

The preliminary competition serves as the foundation for selecting the Semifinalists & Finalists:

  1. The live show and final competition begin with the announcement of the top 50 Semifinalists. Each contestant walks the runway, showcasing dedication and elegance.
  2. Semifinalists proceed to the second stage, featuring the evening Outfit segment.
  3. The judges and fans observe contestants’ personal style during the evening Outfit segment. The design of the outfit doesn’t contribute to the total score; instead, judges focus on the confidence displayed by each contestant.
  4. Based on scores from the evening Outfit competition, the Top 15 competitors are selected, advancing to the Final Question round. Each contestant randomly selects a judge who poses a question on various social, cultural, and political topics. The Final Question round assesses the contestant’s ability to articulate themselves under pressure, providing a thoughtful, well-informed response. Scores are averaged, and the Top 10 contestants proceed to the Final Look.
  5. The event concludes with the host announcing the top 5 winners. If a winner cannot fulfill their duties, the first-runner up or next in line will take their place.
  6. After the event, winners participate in media tours and attend the prize presentation party (all top 50 contestants will be invited to celebrate with the winners).
  7. Winners also enjoy a fashion VIP train ride and a 2-day destination tour, among other post-event activities.
