Mx. Blobfest 2023
Ms. Blobfest 2022 called and she’s not giving up her crown without a fight. So . . . best of luck?
Only one can reign as Mx. Blobfest 2023!
Rules & Details:
- The Blob is an equal-opportunity devourer and this competition is open to every human being who has survived a minimum of 18 solar revolutions! Monstresses, monsters, cryptid, paranormal, extraterrestrial, and interdimensional beings also welcome.
- Film a short (1-2 minute) video explaining why YOU would make the perfect Mx. Blobfest Universe 2023. Get creative, weird, display your Blob-themed talent, wow us with your signature style, mystify, delight, or confound us. Above all, have fun. Entries should be family-friendly (see rules below).
- By June 12th, upload your video entry to YouTube and send that link to Drew Boardman, Events & Engagement Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Entrants selected as finalists must be present at the Colonial Theatre for the Friday Night Run-out and Stage Show on July 14: the first night of Blobfest 2023. Judging and the coronation take place on-stage before our live audience.
Judging & Awards:
Contestants will be (lightly and lovingly) judged by a panel that includes the Contest sponsor and previous Mx. Blobfest pageant winners. The lucky winner receives a cosmic crown of their own and the opportunity to judge the Saturday Costume Contest and attend all features during Blobfest 2023: Blobs and Monsters, as well as complimentary cocktails and popcorn.
Let the spirit of Blobfest and the Colonial Theatre’s belief that a healthy dose of the off-beat stirs the soul inspire your entries!
Additional Contest Rules:
- The Colonial Theatre is not responsible and cannot be held liable for the personal views and opinions of Blobfest contest entrants. This applies to the Costume Contest, Facade Decorating Contest, Mx. Blobfest Universe Contest, and Shorty’s Short Film Contest and any other contests occurring during a Blobfest Festival weekend.
- Blobfest Contest entrants consent to be photographed unless they notify the theatre in writing in advance that they do not wish to be photographed during the festival year in question. The Colonial Theatre is under no obligation to publicize, utilize or share any images of contest entrants captured during Blobfest.
- Blobfest Contest Entrants who troll, harass, bully or defame the Colonial Theatre, Colonial Staff or fellow (past or present) competitors, either in cyberspace/online or real life/offline, will be disqualified from participation in current and future Blobfest Contests.
- Contest Entries for Blobfest should be Family Friendly. “Family Friendly” content is defined as adhering to the Motion Picture Association’s Classification and Rating Rules for G and PG rated films. A G-rated motion picture contains nothing in theme, language, nudity, sex, violence or other matters that, in the view of Colonial Theatre staff, would offend parents whose younger children view the motion picture. The G rating is not a “certificate of approval,” nor does it signify a “children’s” motion picture. Some snippets of language may go beyond polite conversation but they are common everyday expressions. No stronger words are present in G-rated motion pictures. Depictions of violence are minimal. No nudity, sex scenes or drug use are present in the motion picture. A PG-rated motion picture should be investigated by parents before they let their younger children attend. The PG rating indicates, in the view of Colonial Theatre staff, that parents may consider some material unsuitable for their children, and parents should make that decision. The more mature themes in some PG-rated motion pictures may call for parental guidance. There may be some profanity and some depictions of violence or brief nudity. But these elements are not deemed so intense as to require that parents be strongly cautioned beyond the suggestion of parental guidance. There is no drug use content in a PG-rated motion picture.
- In any given year of Blobfest, additional rules specific to each Contest may apply and will be articulated on the Colonial Theatre’s website and in corresponding Facebook Event details.
