Enter PETA’s UK and Ireland’s Hottest Vegan Over 50 Competition 2019
For the first time in the competition’s history, PETA’s annual UK and Ireland’s Hottest Vegan Competition is looking for a new kind of beautiful vegan: the vegan over 50. To show that a plant-based diet and a clear conscience are the key to vitality at all stages of life, this year, we’re calling on the many wise and wonderful vegans who have crested 50 to enter for a chance to win a one-night stay for two people in Hilton London Bankside’s vegan suite, courtesy of Hilton*. We are also scrapping the gender categories and encourage everyone – male, female, or gender non-conforming – to enter.
PETA’s competition seeks the vegans over 50 who dazzle the most – on the inside even more so than on the outside – and who use their compassionate nature to speak out most compellingly for animals. So, do you – yes, you – have what it takes to inspire others with your passion for animal rights?
Before you enter, here are a few quick questions:
- Are you over 50? Rules are rules.
- Are you attractive? We don’t mean having great headshots or a certain body mass index. We’re looking for vegans who are compassionate, enthusiastic, dedicated, optimistic, smart, fun, encouraging, and uplifting – all these virtues are super-attractive.
- Do you take action for animals? There are many, many ways to help make the world a kinder place for animals, and we want to hear yours. From organising protests to rescuing abused and neglected animals to sharing delicious vegan meals with your community, the sky’s the limit.
If you answered “yes” to all these questions, show the world that you have what it takes by entering the UK and Ireland’s Hottest Vegan Over 50 Competition.
PETA’s UK and Ireland’s Hottest Vegan Over 50 Competition will be broken down into two rounds: the entry round and the voting round. You can enter the contest during the entry round only.
The entry round opens on 24 June 2019. All entries must be submitted by 5 pm UK time on 22 July 2019. PETA will choose finalists from qualified entrants based on consideration of the following factors: the enthusiasm they demonstrate in promoting a vegan lifestyle, PETA’s assessment of their attractiveness, and PETA’s assessment of how interesting their story will be to media and the public.
The finalists will be notified and featured on PETA.org.uk by 29 July 2019. Public voting to help PETA decide which finalist it should choose as the winner will begin by 29 July 2019 and end at 5 pm UK time on 7 August 2019. PETA will choose one winner based on consideration of the following factors: the enthusiasm they demonstrate in promoting a vegan lifestyle, PETA’s assessment of their attractiveness, PETA’s assessment of how interesting their story will be to media and the public, and the number of votes they receive in the public voting round.
The winner will be notified and featured on PETA.org.uk by 12 August 2019.
*The winner will receive a one-night stay for two people in Hilton London Bankside’s vegan suite. The winner will be contacted via e-mail by Hilton on Tuesday, 13 August 2019. To claim the prize, the winner must provide their full name and the dates on which they are available to redeem their stay. If the winner does not respond within 14 days of being notified the prize will be forfeited. The prize of a one-night stay for two people in Hilton London Bankside’s vegan suite can be redeemed on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday from Sunday, 18 August, to Sunday, 27 October, subject to availability. The prize is limited to a stay in the vegan suite only and does not include extras such as dinner, drinks, or room service. No cash alternative. Prize is non-transferrable. Once the stay has been processed, confirmed, and shared by the hotel, it cannot be altered by the winner. The prize is offered at the discretion of Hilton London Bankside management.
