About Previous Contests

Contest Rules And Regulations

The contest judges will evaluate final entries based on the following factors:

1- Weight Loss (LBS)

2- Adonis Golden Ratio (AGR) Transformation Change

3- Final AGR Score

4- Muscularity

5- Aesthetics/Photogenic Quality

The judges need to see these changes in the pictures so it’s important that both before and after pictures are in focus and taken at appropriate angles and with good lighting.  Take the time to use a camera with a timer or have someone with a steady hand take the pictures. No “selfies” thank you for your cooperation!

Clothing for contest pictures: a shorts, trunks, boxer briefs or something that shows off your entire upper body…just remember we’re trying to judge overall change. If you do not present your body well in your pictures it might work against you, making it difficult for us to judge how much you’ve trasnformed.

There are 4 required pictures at the start AND at the contest end.

1) Front – Facing camera with arms at your side

2) Side – 90 degrees to the camera with your arms at your side

3) Back – Facing away from the camera, with your arms at your side

The pictures need to be upper body, from the waist up. It is very important that for your front, side, and back poses your arms are down at your sides.  Do not crop out your face.

4) Newspaper picture – This should be a current issue of the national newspaper in order to validate the day you took the picture. You need to take a picture in this same group of pictures with the current day’s newspaper in your hand and the front page visible.

Here is a perfect example of a contest entry; Upper Body is visible, hands at sides, and newspaper picture.
