The Fifteenth Annual Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant is open to any qualified attending female member of the 2014 TrekTrax Atlanta (TXA) who is at least 18 years of age and who agrees to abide by the rules of this contest as posted on the TXA web site site now and in the future. There is NO registration fee nor any additional cost to participate. Membership in or affiliation with any Klingon-oriented organization (i.e., KAG, KLAW, etc.) is not required.
Contestants in the 2014 Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant will be judged in three separate categories. They include:
“Beauty” — Contestants will be judged on the quality and professionalism of their costumes, make-up and “modeling.” Contestants may assume the identity of any Klingon female character from any incarnation of Star Trek, or any original Klingon persona of their own creation. Contestants will be asked to walk a runway in their Klingon persona. Poise, grace and the authenticity of her persona will be the criteria for judging.
“Talent” — Contestants will be allowed NO MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES to demonstrate a talent or skill. Contestants may sing, dance, act, perform or make any other type of presentation that demonstrates a talent or skill so long as the presentation does not endanger herself, other contestants or the audience. (In other words, no flaming bat’leth twirling, etc.) Contestants are encouraged but not required to present a Klingon-themed talent or skill. Originality and the authenticity of her persona will be the criteria for judging. Contestants must disclose to the TrekTrax Atlanta staff their talent intentions prior to the convention for planning purposes, but such information will be kept strictly confidential. Audio, video or other technical equipment needed for a specific talent presentation can usually be provided with sufficient advance notice.
“Personality” — Each contestant will either be asked a question to which she must respond, or be asked to perform some simple task on the spot. The authenticity of her answer or performance, and of her persona, will be criteria for judging.
