If you haven't been to an alternative Miss Cork Show let us explainÃ–
Contestants must be special and their allure must be of a rarer sort. Our judges are looking for a very specific set of characteristics to award the Alternative Miss Cork crown. The characteristic we value is difference, our queen must be a well rounded alternative entertaing character. Previous winners have been - Fabula de Beaumarchet (A Drag Queen) The Nigerian Rose (an Irish born girl with a Nigerian father), Virgin Atlantica (A female actress/comedian and Lucy Furr (A South African drag queen)
The Nigerian Rose
Each contestant must have a well concepted character, the character must shine through and win over the Judges and the crowd in three sections - swimwear, where they parade in swimwear and get a chance to chat with host Panti, daywear and evening wear, where the contestant gets to perform their Party piece, which can be anything so long as its entertaining. Contestants choose their own music for each of the sections and must it must reflect and enhance their character.
The event is judged by a panel of experienced and renound judges - This year we have Franc- the wedding specialist, Frank Twomey (Giftgrub) Jeanette Cronin (You're A Star). During the interval we have performances from past winners and other local talents. Giving the Alternative Miss Cork team time to sell programs and raffle tickets for a selection of prizes kindly donated by local businesses.
The Alternative Miss Cork team all work for free and all profits from the event are donated to aids charities, in the past we have given donations to the Cork Aids Alliance - The Rotary 'Give back a smile' helping children with aids in Africa.
