Surely many of you are super eager to find out who wins the awards of our exclusive sponsors Anne Stokes, Joseph Vargo (Nox Arcana & Monolith Graphics) & Vampfangs. There were changes in the last round of the competition, which were necessary and we urgently introduced a new regulation for fair selection of winners in the competition. The recent top 10 models were:
1. No. 27. Felicity Hawthorn-Chapman, UK
2. No. 22. Debbie Todd, UK

Three participants were selected within about a week by our three judges by criteria for overall aesthetic, make-up, fashion, style, setting, mood, photography, and how well the model reflects the gothic/vampiric spirit.
