UNDERWATER GRACE - Underwater Posing Competition

At Miss Mermaid International, snorkeling and scuba diving judges watch as each mermaid delivers their best show in a one-breath freedive performance with the beautiful Red Sea coral reefs as a backdrop. Beyond underwater modeling, this performance in open water embodies the true magic of mermaiding. The most graceful mermaid wins the "Most Photogenic Underwater" sash.

CREATIVITY - Costume Design

Mermaids love getting crafty! At Miss Mermaid International each queen poses for a photoshoot featuring her self-made mermaid top and accessories. She can even decorate her fabric Magictail Pro mermaid tail (a gift from official sponsor Magictails) and she does her own mermaid hair and makeup for this (on land) shoot. The mermaid with the most unique ensemble will receive a sash for "Most Creative."

SWIM FITNESS - Long Distance Swim Competition

At Miss Mermaid International one of the most difficult and objective competitions is the Long Distance Swim, where mermaids swim their maximum distance in one breath in their mermaid tail. This horizontal "dive" allows each mermaid to push her abilities while avoiding the risks involved in vertical freediving. In a 30 meter pool some mermaids can even swim 2 laps! The mermaid that swims the farthest will win the "Best in Water" sash.
