PETA's Sexiest Vegan Next Door 2014 contest will be broken down into Next Door 2014 contest will be broken down into three rounds: entry, voting to help determine finalists, and voting to help determine winners.
PETA will consider three factors in choosing the finalists and winners:
- The total number of votes that you receive
- The enthusiasm that you demonstrate in promoting your entry and a vegan lifestyle
- PETA's assessment of your physical attractiveness
All entries must be submitted by 12 noon EDT on March 14, 2014. At 12 noon EDT on March 17, 2014, voting will open to the public to help PETA determine who it should select as the finalists. Voting to help PETA determine finalists ends at 12 noon EDT on March 28, 2014. We'll announce the top 20 finalists—the top 10 vote-getters (five male and five female) as well as the top 10 "judges' picks" (five male and five female), which will be determined by a PETA panel—by 12 noon EDT on April 14, 2014. At that time, a new round of voting will begin, in which people will vote on the finalists to help PETA determine who it should pick as the winners. The final voting round will end at 12 noon EDT on May 2, 2014.
On May 6, 2014, the winners (one male and one female) will be announced!
