Contest Rules And Regulations

The contest judges will evaluate final entries based on the following factors; weight loss, muscle gain, Venus metrics, and presentation. The judges need to see these changes in the pictures so it’s important that both before and after pictures are in focus and taken at appropriate angles and with good lighting.  Take the time to to use a camera with a timer or have someone with a steady hand take the pictures.

Clothing for contest pictures: a bathing suit/bikini, or something that shows off your waist, shoulders and hips (some sort of workout shorts will also do)…just remember we’re trying to judge overall change, if you hide your body in this picture it might work against you if you make it difficult for us to judge how much you change.

There are 4 required pictures at the start AND at the contest end.

1) Front – Facing camera with arms at your side

2) Side – 90 degrees to the camera with your arms at your side

3) Back – Facing away from the camera, with your arms at your side

The pictures need to be full body head to toe. It is very important that for your front, side, and back poses your arms are down at your sides but not covering your waist and that they are full body head to toe pictures.  Do not crop out your face or your feet.

4) Newspaper picture –   This should be a current issue of the national newspaper in order to validate the day you took the picture. You need to take a picture in this same group of pictures with the current day’s newspaper in your hand and the front page visible.

Here is a perfect example of a contest entry;  Full head to toe, hands at sides, and newspaper picture.

Cover and Calendar girl category

With each contest there is a Cover and Calendar girl category for previous contest winners or any Venus customer who is close to their Venus Ideal shape and wants a chance to be in our calendar or on one of our covers.  Submit a picture at the beginning of the contest before the deadline so that we know who is in the running.  There are no prizes for this category.  The “before” pictures will not be used for judging or shared with anyone; they are merely for entering the contest.

Be creative and have fun with this category.  Pictures do not have to be bikini model or fitness model pictures – but they can be if you want!  These may be used on workout covers.

You can model a favorite dress or outfit, jeans and T-shirt, sports or hobbie clothing, creative fashion modeling, whatever your style; just have some fun showing off your new beautiful Venus shape.

    If I start VI today but also want to compete in the next contest, when do I take my official “before” picture? I certainly don’t want to wait to get sexier, but I also want a fighting chance!
