219 W Olive Springfield, Missouri 65806

Calling performers from all over! Martha’s Vineyard is preparing to crown the very first Miss and Mister ICONIC Martha’s Vineyard, and they want you! Unlike previous years and Martha’s former pageant (Miss Martha’s Vineyard/Martha’s Vineyard Pride), this pageant will not only be limited to drag performers. Anyone who believes they have what it takes to represent Martha’s Vineyard and Martha’s Vineyard Entertainment is welcome to apply and compete for this new illustrious title.

Prize Package includes: $100 Cash, Crown, Sash, 2 Weekend Bookings per Month at Martha’s Vineyard (24 Bookings Total), Special Appearances at Large Production Events (Halloween, New Years, Anniversary, PRIDE 2025, and more!), Paid Entry Fee into a Preliminary/Regional Pageant of the Winner’s Choice.

The contestants will be judged in the following categories: PRIDE Presentation, Talent, Evening Wear, and Onstage Question. You can find brief descriptions of each category below:

PRIDE Presentation – An overall look that inspires what PRIDE and Martha’s Vineyard PRIDE means to them. This category has no restrictions, other than no nudity–so let your imagination fly!

Talent – A 6 minute presentation of one’s talent. There is no limit to what the talent can be as long as it is under 6 minutes in total (not including set up and take down–see rules and regulations). No fire, no water, and no confetti on stage please.

Evening Wear – A Formal look suited for the contestant. Well fitted, fully executed with accessories, styled hair, and an overall polished look worthy of the crown.

Onstage Question – Random question asked of the contestant onstage in front of the judge’s regarding various duties of the position, representation of Martha’s, and goal of the contestant should they win.
