Submissions of “Before” Photos will be accepted starting Mon Jan 16th. We will be accepting submissions for 5 days until
Fri Jan 20th.

Mandatory before photo poses are the front, back, and side relaxed (arms at side) pose.

Mandatory newspaper picture within this photoshoot is required. For the newspaper picture we need to see you in the same position as each of the front, side and back shots. I need to see your body and your face with the paper. Once you’ve done the shots with the paper please redo them immediately without the paper, same shorts, same position, same location, same photoshoot.

There is now a mandatory Contest data chart that you can
download at this link: ***AT7 Contest Data Chart***

Fill this chart out with your name, age, height, and your starting weight, waist, and shoulder measurement. The chart has some built in functions to calculate your ideal AI and how far you have to go to get to it.

Filling this chart out before and after the contest is mandatory.

Before pictures must be submitted in a zip file labeled in the format of the following example:


Each picture must be labelled with your first and last name and the associated pose ie:


Picture size:

Please re-size larger picture files down to a size that has a height of  approx 500 pixels.

Failure to label, or re-size the pictures correctly or zip the file will result in potential disqualification from the contest (these files can easily become lost if they’re not labeled and sent in correctly)

Before and After pictures are mandatory for all contestants even if you think you’ll be in the open category (the open category is essentially for those people who are ‘close’ to their ideal proportions whereas the transformation category is for all people no matter how far they have to go to get to their idea proportions)…if you make a big change, but still have a ways to go to get to Golden you will be placed in the Transformation category…if you only have 10lbs or a few inches to go to get to golden then you will be placed in the open division.

***”Before” pictures and data chart must be emailed to me at johnbarban (at) gmail (dot) com***

All contestants who place in the open level 1 division will qualify for the level 2 competition to be held in April 2013.


A special note about taking ‘after’ photos. We are now looking at featuring some of our contestants on our book covers in the coming year. If you want to be in the running to be an Adonis Index cover model we will be giving instructions on
taking your best after photos. This doesn’t and will never require you to hire a photographer. We will be giving you instructions for taking great after pics with a regular digital camera and some simple lighting and a back drop you can put together at your house. All contestants from both the transformation and open division are eligible to be in the running for a cover model.

If you want to hire a photographer that is your choice, but we do not require it and will never ask anyone to do so.

It’s time for someone new to step up!
