WHO WE ARE
It was this year when a consciousness for a need of a platform to cater the fresh/upcoming models to showcase their confidence & poise in the fashion industry was discovered. And thus DonBella was born.
At DonBella, we believe in “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do”
DonBella is an Australian modelling contest for aspiring and professional models, giving a chance to follow their dreams. This will be a platform to start a modelling career for those who are residing in Australia and from across the world. Each contestant will get the chance to strut the catwalk with the best in the country and compete for the Mr. Don and Miss. Bella crown! Besides, we want to help the needy, both in terms of modelling and also the less fortunate and/or people affected by natural calamities through bountiful forms.
WHAT CAN YOU WIN?
- The winners of DonBella will receive a cash prize, modelling portfolio and wardrobe plus other prizes.
- Modelling contract with partner agencies
- Judge’s Choice winners receive a magazine cover shoot
- All winners will be published in our online editorials
There are seven additional awards presented in both the Mr. Don & Miss. Bella beauty Pageants: Congeniality, Photogenic, Style, Health & Fitness, Spirit, Service, and People’s Choice. Each award has its own judges and judging criteria and is completely separate from and has no bearing on the pageants’ scoring or outcomes. All contestants are eligible for these awards.
The recipient of the Congeniality Award is the contestant who is judged by her peers to be the most congenial, charismatic, and inspirational pageant participant.
Contestants’ headshots are judged by members of the media for their photogenic appeal, beauty, warmth and personality projection.
Members of the media judge contestants on their personal style, fashion sense and pageant modeling ability
HEALTH & FITNESS
Pageant staff and select sponsors judge contestants’ dedication to physical fitness, nutritious eating and overall healthy lifestyle
This award is given by the DonBella Pageants staff to the contestant who best represents all that is good in pageantry: sportsmanship, teamwork, time management, dedication, respect and compassion.
The Executive Directors of Mr. Don & Miss. Bella Beauty Pageants select the contestant who not only understands him/her platform issue but also shows evidence of her service to others.
This award is given to the contestant with the most votes from the general public. Voting takes place in the weeks before the pageant and contestants are encouraged to campaign for this honour. Each vote costs $1 and all funds raised for this award go to a charity for homeless people.
