MODEL OF THE YEAR 2021 – Stage 1 – Poll Voting!

Dear friends, fans and followers of World Gothic Models! We would like to introduce you to the contest “Model of the Year” for 2021! 

This is the third edition of our competition Model of the Year and it is something different from our usual contests during the year – this time the models are chosen in advance by you, the fans from our Instagram profile!

Models from all over the world tag us on their images and we publish the best shots periodically on our gallery on Instagram.

The models’ best pictures, which received the most *hearts* for the current week, became Models of the Week. We collected this data and right after the year 2021 ended we organize this contest with the models you loved the most.

Who will get through the all 3 stages and will become the No.1 Model of 2021? You will help us in this mission! 

How you can enter this contest:

No matter if your images are older or you participated previous years, or you are a winner of one of our contests Goth Queen/Royalty or Vampire Goddess/Royalty – you have this chance to become Model of the Year!

Every model has the opportunity to be nominated more than once or to participate every year if our audience like your images and you get Nominated.

Be inspired to create wonderful gothic pictures and share them with the world. Winners from other contests by WGM can participate in Model of the Year selections.

Keep hashtagging us (with #worldgothicmodels in your description box under your pics) in order to be part of the fun we create for you all!

Last year’s winner was LilithLaveyOfficial and she received a special painting with her own references by our illustrator Emily Whittingham from the UK as well as dedicated merch at our store with designs by E.R.Whittinham & digital adaptation by Plamendura Art.
