This area of competition is separate from the 3 phases of competition considered in choosing the WVAFF Queen. A separate panel of media judges will select Miss Photogenic. Judging will occur during the Event Promotion Competition. One award will be presented at the conclusion of the Event Promotion Competition.

Event Promotion:  All contestants will present their Event Promotion (30 second maximum) during the competition held of Friday afternoon and/or evening. All contestants will wear matching shirts.  These competition shirts are sponsored by Gambill Amusements. During each presentation, a light bar will be on stage to indicate the time remaining for each presentation. Green light 25 seconds and yellow light 5 seconds.  At the conclusion of the 30 seconds the red light will come on. Contestants going over the time limit will be disqualified from that phase of competition only. Contestants are encouraged to wear jeans or other suitable clothing for this competition. Comfortable shoes are encouraged, as well! NO PROPS ARE PERMITTED!!!

Judges Interview: Competition occurs either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, dependent on group assignment. Each contestant will participate in a 2 minute panel style interview with the judges.
