I want to participate in digital voting during the SELF contest
 

We've changed up the way we score our contests.  YOU  have the opportunity to give points in categories for each of our titles.  Those points will be averaged in with the judges' points and will become part of the overall score for each contestant.  We're letting YOU help choose your next Southeast Leatherfest representative. 

Your cell phone must be preregistered before the contest.*  Each category will be assigned a code.  Instructions will be provided during both nights of the contest, and you will assign the points you think each contestant deserves.     

 

Audience Vote Categories per contest:

Mr. SouthEast LeatherFest, Ms. SouthEast LeatherFest, SouthEast LeatherFest boy and SouthEast Person of Leather

Open Mic Session – 
This portion of the contest will be held during the day. Attendees will have 7 minutes for Mr., Ms. and boy to ask any questions they would like to know, within parameters. There will be a moderator present to keep the questions within the parameters and to keep the session moving along. The audience will give points based on sincerity, completeness of answer and relate-ability with the audience.

Speed Round/Pop Question/Hot Wear – 
This could be anything from jockstrap for men (keeping in mind the GA nudity laws requires a one inch strip up the butt crack and all genitals covered) and corsets for women to torn jeans, full uniforms or cruise leather. It could be close to nude (GA Law requires women’s aureoles to be covered as well) or fully encased in leather. Contestant should dress in whatever they feels makes them look and feel the hottest and sexiest!  Points will be given based on confidence in the outfit.

The contestant will be fielding a surprise question and a word association from the emcee, ranging from fun to serious. The Pop question could be anything from history to something specific about our region. They’ll also will be asked to respond to five words by the Emcee. The audience will  vote based on how the contestant handles pop questions.

Fantasy Performance – 
This is the contestant’s chance to be creative, have fun, and give the audience more insight into what makes them throb: a leather, S/M, or other fetish fantasy. It can be erotic, political or funny. The fantasy does not have to be sexual. Any imaginative scenario with a leather or leather/fetish lifestyle theme is appropriate. If the fantasy is sexual/erotic, nudity and decency laws must be obeyed at all times. Creativity and originality really count in this category. The Fantasy Performance must be no longer than three (3) minutes. Points will be given based on audience's reaction and relate-ability to the fantasy. 

Southeast Master/slave

Open Mic Session – 
This portion of the contest will be held during the day. Attendees will have 10 minutes with the Master/slave couple to ask any questions they would like to know, within parameters. There will be a moderator present to keep the questions within the parameters and to keep the session moving along. The audience will give points based on sincerity, completeness of answer and relate-ability with the audience.

Speed Round/Pop Question/Hot Wear – 
This could be anything from jockstrap for men (keeping in mind the GA nudity laws requires a one inch strip up the butt crack and all genitals covered) and corsets for women to torn jeans, full uniforms or cruise leather. It could be close to nude (GA Law requires women’s aureoles to be covered as well) or fully encased in leather. Contestant should dress in whatever they feels makes them look and feel the hottest and sexiest!  Points will be given based on confidence in the outfit.

The contestant will be fielding a surprise question or a word association from the emcee, ranging from fun to serious. The Pop question could be anything from history to something specific about our region. They’ll also be asked to respond to five words by the Emcee. The audience will be assessing how you handle spot questions.

Educational Presentation – 
This is a 20 minute educational presentation. The Master and slave should each speak knowledgably on the topic. Handouts, audio-visuals, etc. may be used. There will be a short question and answer period (no more than 5 minutes) from those in the audience. Judges will observe and not ask questions. The Head Judge will instruct those in the audience to ask questions on the presentation only and will invite the contestants to begin. The contestants will be scored on your timing, educational content, ability to present accessible knowledge, and audience interaction.

Southeast Bootblack

Speed Round/Pop Question/Hot Wear – 
This could be anything from jockstrap for men (keeping in mind the GA nudity laws requires a one inch strip up the butt crack and all genitals covered) and corsets for women to torn jeans, full uniforms or cruise leather. It could be close to nude (GA Law requires women’s aureoles to be covered as well) or fully encased in leather. Contestant should dress in whatever they feels makes them look and feel the hottest and sexiest while bootblacking! Points will be given based on confidence in the outfit.

The contestant will be fielding a surprise question or a word association from the emcee, ranging from fun to serious and not necessarily about bootblacking. The Pop question could be anything from history to something specific about our region. They’ll also be asked to respond to five words by the Emcee. The audience will be assessing how you handle spot questions.
