Sixteen semi-finalists will be pared down to seven finalists who will then perform live at the event for the judges and a live audience. There's no Miss Congeniality award, but two other titles will include "Hollywood Boystown Ambassador" for the dancer who will best represent the city of West Hollywood, and an "Embodiment Award: Fit & Firm" for the dancer with the healthiest and fittest physique. See? Fitness and community, people. It's about more than looking hot in a tiny swimsuit.
As a prize, the go-go dancer who wins the competition will receive $1,000, a Palm Springs weekend package, and the opportunity to appear on the cover of Frontiers.
"We planned this year's festivities to coincide with the Tom of Finland Foundation's exhibit opening at the Museum of Contemporary Art, both organizations being new partners who joined the festival this year," says Vic Gerami, Frontiers Advertising Director. Following the festival and competition, Frontiers will host an official after-party at Micky's, beginning at 10:30 p.m.
