Winner Will Receive an All-Expenses-Paid Overnight Stay in the World’s First All-Vegan Luxury Hotel Suite

London – In a twist on its popular Hottest Vegan contest, PETA is now accepting entries for its inaugural 2019 UK and Ireland’s Hottest Vegan Over 50 competition, which seeks to honour the many wise and wonderful vegans who have crested 50.

The winner will receive a complimentary one-night stay for two people in the world’s first all-vegan hotel suite, inside the five-star Hilton London Bankside Hotel.

“This competition celebrates the venerable vegans who are setting an example of compassion for the younger generations to follow,” says PETA Director Elisa Allen. “PETA can’t wait to pay tribute to this vibrant community of animal rights proponents who are testaments to the power of vegan eating.”

In addition to saving the lives of nearly 200 animals every year, people who go vegan could very well be extending their own lifespans, too, as vegans are less prone to suffering from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity and are, on average, fitter and trimmers than meat-eaters are.

PETA will not be using gender categories and is crowning one winner – male, female, or gender-non-conforming. Entrants must be at least 50 years of age and enter by 22 July 2019. By 29 July, PETA will announce the top finalists – to be determined by a PETA panel – and voting will open to the public to help the group determine whom it should select as the winner. The winner will be chosen based on several factors, including vote count, and will be announced by 12 August. See the full contest details here.

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” – opposes speciesism, which is a human supremacist worldview. The group offers a free vegan starter kit, available here, full of recipes, tips, and more.
