Women of All Sizes are Invited to Enter the Contest

Just like our swimwear is designed for women of all sizes and shapes, this contest is too! We invite women of all sizes to enter. We want this lucky fan to represent our HAPARI community, and that means we aren’t just looking for one certain size.

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that life is short and it can change in an instant. Now is the time to try new things and go for what we want; it’s the perfect time to try something new. If you’ve always wanted the opportunity to model or just want to win a getaway, enter the contest! There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain. We love our HAPARI community!

Hurry to Enter - Time’s Running Out!

To enter the model search, submit a full-body photo wearing a swimsuit. This doesn’t have to be a professional shot; you can take a pic in your house or backyard! Photo submissions are open from November 7 through November 30, 2020.

How will judging take place? A panel of HAPARI judges will select 20 semi-finalists to advance to the next community-voting round. The HAPARI community will vote online for their favorite semi-finalist. The 10 semi-finalists with the most votes will advance to the final round.

Finalists will be asked to create a video submission on why they should be selected and what the opportunity means to them. The HAPARI community will again vote for their favorite video submission. The contestant with the most total votes will win the 2020 HAPARI Model Search Contest and Photoshoot Experience.

The contest submission form and full official rules can be found on here. Contestants must be legal residents of the United States and at least 18 years old at time of entry. Purchase is not required to enter. Images from the winner’s photoshoot will be used on HAPARI’s website and social media accounts.
