This virtual pageant will again take place on the Miss CAM Antonio facebook page (

The contest is open to anyone currently living in San Antonio: male or female, young or old.  To compete, contestants must answer the pageant-inspired question, "As Miss CAM Antonio, how would you promote contemporary art in San Antonio?"

Contestants post their answers on the Miss CAM Antonio facebook page in the form of words, photos, video or any other medium that can fit into a wall post.  Answers may be posted from now until Sunday Feb 24, 2013.

The Finalists will be determined by the number of "likes" the contestant's wall post receives. The four entrants receiving the most "likes" will proceed to the finalist round, judged by a panel of CAM Executive and Artist Advisory Board members.

The winner will be crowned during the Contemporary Art Month kick-off party at Blue Star Art Contemporary Arts Museum, on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 6-9pm.

Miss CAM Antonio must be available to greet his or her adoring public on the following dates: March 1, 9 15, 16,23, 24, 27, & 29.

Miss CAM Antonio receives a custom designed crown by local artist Mat Kubo and a pair of tickets to the Contemporary Art Month closing party, among other prizes.  CAM will promote the winner in social media and traditional press materials.  The winner may even get a photo-op astride a tractor!
