Happy New Year! 2014 has just begun and we have started the search for the next title-holder of Mr Gay Europe and Mr Gay World. Do you want to have a go? It is as easy as 1-2-3.

The search for the next Mr Gay Europe and Mr Gay World is on, and you register in three easy steps.

1. First you have to fill in the registration form where you give us the basic information about yourself and submit the first photos.

Please note that if you live in a country that has its own Mr Gay competition you need to go to one of those and win to represent your country. If you come from a country where there is no Mr Gay competition you can register as a “wild card” and it will be up to the executive committee to handle your registration which is treated as an application.

All Europeans need to take part in Mr Gay Europe in order to go on to Mr Gay World. The good part is that if you are in Europe you only need to fill in the registration form for Mr Gay Europe

2. After your registration has been confirmed by your producer, director and the executive committee you will get a letter of confirmation and official invitation to take part in the competition. This letter can also be used for visa applications if you need a visa to travel to the Schengen area. This letter will be sent out after 1. February and/or within a week after you have filled in the registration form. In this letter you are asked for additional information and you can submit more photos if you want.

3. The third step is when we have all your information and we send you The Handbook – a guide to the competition and Grand Finale. At this stage you will also be asked to confirm your travel plans and tell us if you have any special needs regarding diet, translator etc.

Please read the rules and policy statements before you sign on.

The absolute deadline for a complete registration (Steps 1, 2 and 3) for Mr Gay Europe is 1. May. The dates for the competition are 7. – 15. June 2014 and the competition takes place in Austria.
