Please send a headshot and a short bio about your drag 





 


STEP 2 

You will be asked to attend a local venue to perform a 5 - 10 minute show. The venues are located in the cities mentioned on the image to the right. Your show can be absolutely anything as long as its entertaining. We do not have a runway or any challenges. The results are based on talent not looks. Some queens have struggled to understand how the early stage contests will work. The easiest way to explain it is to imagine you are applying for The X Factor. You have your moment on stage and the judges will give their feedback, thats it. At the end of the night the host, usually Linda Gold will consult the judges and the audience as-well as the venue owner but ultimately the decision on who wins is the hosts. Don't worry if you don't go through  you can re-enter over and over again. Drag Idol international understands not every 5 minute show expresses the real you, so, you can enter as many times as you like. The only rule is that you do a different show every time.

STEP 3

If you win the heat at the local venue you will go through to the local final. This could easily be many months later as the EDC runs over several months. Remember the winner represents the entire country in Europe!,  this huge task cannot be rushed.

At the local final you will again be given 5 to 10 minutes to perform. The winner will receive:

  • 200 EUROS cash.
  • A Paid hosting gig worth 150 EUROS.
  • A PAID Position on the judging panel for next season
  • An opportunity to tour with 'The Invasion' (our sister event)

STEP 4

The local winner will be invited to compete for 'Queen' of her respective country. There is no cash or prize as such, other than 'The Crown' and Queen of your Country, although we will offer overnight accommodation, dinner and refreshments at the event. The ultimate prize here is that the winner of the country will be given the opportunity to compete in the EDC in 2020. If the winner cannot make it to the EDC contest in Sweden the runner up will be offered this opportunity. If the runner up cannot attend, Linda Gold will send a representative from one of the eliminated contestants. This means ANY Contestant, winner OR not has a chance to enter the EDC in 2020.

STEP 5

The representatives of each respective country will come together to fly to Sweden to represent their country in the EDC. As before it's a 5-10 minute show but this time the prizes at stake are as follows-

  • The Crown for the winner of The Eurovision Drag Contest 2020
  • 1000 EUROS Tax Free CASH
  • Over 2000 Euros of Paid hosting Events
