The friendly Brighton Bear Weekend gang from the United Kingdom have announced that Mr. Brighton Bear, one of the highlights of each year’s event, is now accepting entries for 2021 competition!
Last year’s competition was very creatively and enthusiastically rolled out online, to the great delight of many, but the guys are thrilled to tell us this year will be a LIVE event final, taking place on Friday, July 23rd in beautiful downtown Kemptown. There will be two ways to vote — online and then in person at the live event, which means entrants’ chances of winning will be doubled!
Mr. Brighton Bear 2021 will win a £100 cash prize and a fabulous Mr. Brighton Bear sash and crown. The runner up will be pocketing a handy £25. As with last year’s competition, entrants will be asked to provide photos of themselves relating to three fun categories — Beachwear, Night Out On The Town & Wear What You Dare! A short interview will also be filmed (the guys guarantee it’s all very painless!), which will be shared online to help their furry (and non-furry) fans and friends around the world decide who should snatch this year’s crown.
Entry is free, so everyone interested should simply complete the short form on the BBW website at brightonbearweekend.com/mrbrightonbear!
Graham Munday, Chair of Brighton Bear Weekend said “This is the third year we have held Mr. Brighton Bear and, without a doubt, it has become a real highlight of the weekend. It’s great fun and it attracts a real mix of guys, so I would encourage anyone thinking about entering to give it a go. There’s no need to be shy; you’ll be made to feel very welcome.”
