At each Mr Gay Europe finale, we let the delegates get ready for their closeups in the photogenic challenge.

This challenge counts for only ten percent of the total score, but nevertheless both the delegates and our followers on our website and social media are eager to see the results.

This year’s photogenic challenge photographer was German Tim Schrock, and he chose a more artistic angle to the photo session.

The scoring for this challenge is divided into two, one part for the professionalism during the photo session scored by the photographer, and one for the final result scored by a professional photo editor.

This challenge was one out of four that Alexander Petrov won to become Mr Gay Europe 2019.
