Last year I ran a Bellazon World Cup alongside the men's football competition (won by Brazil, represented by Lais Ribeiro). As it was fairly well received I thought I would run it again alongside the FIFA Women's World Cup that starts on June 7th.


Last time I just picked a model to represent each country, but this year I'll try a 'Qualifying Stage', so we can fairly choose someone to represent each of the 24 nations taking part. I'll have nominations open for six countries at a time, although there is no need to nominate a model for every country if you don't wish to.


To be eligible a model has to be born in the country they represent, and have a thread in the Female Fashion Model forum with photos from 2019.

It's meant to be a competition for 2019, so models will be judged on how they look this year. Some of the countries in the World Cup are harder to find models for than others, so we will probably have to bend a few of these rules (allowing for parent's nationalities, pictures from a couple of years ago, that sort of thing).

Yeah, this isn't proving very popular, so I'll just pick the models myself (last time I did it mainly based on other competitions, best European models, best Brazilian models etc.) and start the competition alongside the real world cup on the 7th June

The competition will work the same way I did the World Cup 2018 last year, with matches determined by the FIFA Women's World Cup that starts on the 7th June. Each country that is playing in the real world cup will be represented by a model. I was trying to run a little qualification competition to see which model represents each country, but it seem like it was too confusing.
