There are currently 2 ways to enter:

• If you win/place in a regional pinup competition, between March 2019 to October 2020 and qualify for PDA, you will have an invitation extended to you for automatic entry to Pinup Doll Australia 2021. Should you choose to accept, you will be required to sign our Code of Conduct, sign our rules and guidelines sheets, get your photographer to sign a photo realise and pay an entry fee of $49.95.

•You can enter as a wildcard if you come from an Australia State that does not have many Pinup competition or you do not have access to competing at a local or regional level. We encourage you to submit a short YouTube video to introduce yourself of no more than 5 minutes to pinupdollaustralia@gmail.com from 1/10/20.

What can I win?

Thanks to the hard work of the Pinup Doll Australia 2020-21 team, and the generosity of the many sponsors that have agreed to come on board, we have so many fabulous gifts not just for the winner but for everyone that competes. How many competitions can say that? ​For more insight, please check out our sponsors page.

Are there age requirements?

Yes. Pinup Doll Australia contestants must be at least 18 years old to enter. What is the entry fee, and how do I pay? The entry fee is $49.95 and is payable by PayPal. As Pinup Doll Australia is a non-profit organisation (that’s right, we volunteer our time & resources), the entirety of your entry fee goes towards prize packs and fees that need to be paid in order to run the competition.

Will I get a refund if the event is cancelled?

In the very unlikely event that the Pinup Doll Australia 2021 National Event is cancelled, you will receive a full refund.

Will I get a refund if I can’t make it to Chromefest? Unfortunately we do not give refunds if you can’t make it to the National Titles, or if you change your mind.
