1. Basic Entry Requirements - You must be over 18 (by the time of the 2018 festival), and a resident of the UK. You must also be available to attend the final at Twinwood Festival in August if you make it to the final round (complimentary tickets are provided to finalists).

2. Photo Requirements - Send us a single, good-quality image showing you in your best vintage look. Your image must only have you in it and we only publish one image per person. Apparel must be civilian daywear or eveningwear in a vintage style (no swimwear, lingerie, militaria or weaponry). You must have permission from the photographer to use and submit your image. Twinwood Events reserves the right not to publish any photos that it deems unsuitable.

3. Where To Send Your Info Email your image to competition@twinwoodevents.com, and please include your name and age (age won't be displayed) and where you are from. You are welcome to submit any further information about yourself, which we may display alongside your image at our discretion. A few words about your passion for the vintage look and lifestyle could improve your chances! Applicants must be contactable via the email address they used when submitting their image. The deadline for emailed entries is 11pm on 1st April.

4. Voting - The photos will go live on April 6th on the Twinwood Festival Facebook page. Public voting will then commence - a vote is cast by simply "liking" the Facebook photo. We encourage entrants to invite their friends and family to "like" and "share" their photo in order to increase their chances of making it to the finals. The public voting period lasts from April 6th to May 1st.

5. Selection of the Finalists - The top thirty ladies and top ten gentlemen (those receiving the most likes on their pictures from the public vote), will go into a judged second round. After this, our top ten ladies and top five gents will be invited to attend the live final which will be held in front of a panel of vintage experts, on Sunday 26th of August at Twinwood Festival. Each finalist will recieve two free 3-day weekend tickets to the festival, plus a camping pitch so they can attend the event. (Please note, if you have already bought 2018 tickets, you will need to contact us via email so we can issue you with a credit note for the booked tickets.)
