The Downtown Chatham Centre is announcing that the Miss Retrofest online photo contest has been revamped and is continuing for 2016 in time for Retrofest weekend on May 27 and 28.
Some changes will be made to improve the contest for its third year.
Submissions will require a photo of the contestant dressed in retro fashions and a few words on why they love being “retro.” Interested participants must be 18 years or older.
Submissions will be accepted at facebook.com/downtownchathamcentre until April 29.
From there a panel of judges will select a winner then release five runners-up to a voting process to win the title of “People’s Choice.”
Miss Retrofest 2016 will be announced on May 4. Voting for the “People’s Choice” will start May 10 both online and inside the mall.
All contestants that entered will be part of a special display inside the mall that will recognize the ladies leading up to the Retrofest weekend.
The winner will receive a VIP treatment during Retrofest which includes riding as a guest of honour in the OLG Classic Car Cruise, a personal stylist and shopping spree at Suzy Shier, retro make-over from The Hair Studio at Sears and Gloss Wedding Make-up & Esthetics, a pin-up inspired photo shoot with April Colby Photography, and presenting plaques at the Retrofest award ceremony.
The Miss Retrofest contest is open to all women but are asked that all photos are kept classy – no lingerie, nude or overly sexual pictures will be accepted.
