LADIES EVENTS COMPARISON CHART

FIGURE INTRODUCTION

The Figure Universe format shows have become extremely popular since its introduction in 2005. It offers a competitive forum with a pageantry format for ladies whom have an athletic body with a slightly muscular appearance.

There are three divisions based upon age. However, mature competitors may compete in any age division.

  • Open Division (Any Age)
  • Classic Division (35+ Years of Age)
  • Masters Division (45+ Years of Age)
  • Professional Division (Prequalified Only)

Height classes will be set following competitor registration to provide balanced distribution.

BODY CONDITION

There’s one major difference between Ms. Bikini and Figure competitors – body condition. While Ms. Bikini competitors must have an athletic, shapely and sexy appearance, Figure Universe may be slightly muscular, have low body fat but still present a shapely look. Ladies who have a more natural muscular body would best compete in Figure while those with a softer but still toned body best compete in Ms. Bikini. Sample competitor images are presented for reference.

CONTEST ROUNDS

There is one competitive round at Figure Universe in which competitors must wear a two piece swimsuit. Competitors will walk in a ‘H’ or ‘T’ configuration (depending upon the stage design). Judges will call for quarter turns when contestants must present an erect and stiff body posture. However, posing in an overly sexual or manner including bending over in a reverse position, moves indicative of a stripper or other provocative body positions and/or movements will result in a deduction of points at the discretion of the Compliance Judge. Finally, judges will line-up all contestants in their respective height classes and call for group comparisons. Shoes must be a standard high heel and no clog to exaggerate a competitor’s height.

SWIMSUIT DESIGN

The two piece swimsuit may have high, side cuts and extremely thin straps to extenuate competitor body lines. However, no thong or ‘T’ cuts are permitted. This is distinctly different from the more standard swimsuit designs as required in both the Ms. Bikini and Fitness competitions. Sample competitor images are presented for reference.

JUDGES

Figure Universe will be judged by bodybuilding trainers, coaches and professional bodybuilders. Ms. Bikini judges are fitness coaches and trainers, talent agents, photographers and others representing mainstream sport disciplines. Prospective competitors contemplating which event to select should consider that the perspective of each set of judges will reflect their experiences and expertise.

STAGE ETIQUETTE

Walking, turning and posing in an overly sexual manner including bending over in a reverse position, spreading of legs beyond shoulder width, moves indicative of a stripper or other provocative body positions and/or movements will result in a deduction of points at the discretion of each judge.

MULTIPLE EVENTS

Competitors can participate in more than one event if they choose including Ms. Bikini, Figure, Fitness, Model and/or Bodybuilding. Each event will be scored by a completely different panel of judges, so competitors placing in respective events may vary according significantly. A Ladies Event Comparison chart is provided for reference.

DRUG TESTING CRITERIA

Because the Figure Universe Championships are for natural ladies, all competitors will be subjected to urinalysis sampling at check-in at the show and Top 5 Finalists’ samples will be tested. If a contestant tests positive for any listed banned substances, she will be disqualified from the competition, forfeit any prizes and/or rewards and be unable to compete in any Figure Universe event worldwide for at least 2 years. Also, if a contestant refuses to submit to drug testing or attempts to manipulate and/or alter a urinalysis sample, then he/she will be immediately disqualified from the competition.

US VISA INFORMATION FOR COMPETITORS

The U.S. government requires residents of many countries to obtain a temporary visa before entering the U.S. It is very important to apply for your visa at least 90 days prior to your departure. The information below provides important links and details that should make the entire process easier for you. Please contact us at any point if you need assistance.

US VISA INFORMATION FOR INTERNATIONAL MEDIA

 International members of the media should have a nonimmigrant media (I) Visa, since using the visa waiver program to work as a journalist in the U.S. will not guarantee entry. More information about the I-Visa can be found on the U.S. Embassy's Web site for your home country. Visit the U.S. State Department's Website to find the appropriate Embassy's Web site.

APPLYING FOR YOUR VISA

  1. Review the U.S. Department of State Website for changes to the visa process that may affect you.
  2. Apply for your visa as early as possible and at least 90 days prior to your departure date. Make this a priority.
  3. Obtain a Letter of Invitation from the Universe Weekend promoters.
  4. Check your passport expiration date to make sure it will be valid for at least six more months.
  5. If you already have a US visa, check the expiration date to make sure it will not expire before your trip is completed.

REQUESTING A LETTER OF INVITATION FROM UNIVERSE WEEKEND PROMOTERS:

  1. Complete your Universe Weekend online or print registration form
  2. Include your email address
  3. Include your date of birth and your passport number
  4. Your letter of invitation will be automatically and immediately emailed to you as a JPG format. Print the letter and submit it along with your visa application to the U.S. Embassy/Consulate.
  5. The deadline to request a Letter of Invitation is May 15.
  6. Complete one request for each person requiring a Letter of Invitation
  7. Only requests submitted via the online registration form will be processed. Obtaining a Letter of Invitation will not guarantee that you will be approved for a visa. The letter is merely supplementary information that explains a visa applicant's intended purpose to travel. U.S. Embassy officers look at the totality of an applicant's personal situation in determining visa eligibility.

TIPS TO MAKE YOUR VISA INTERVIEW SUCCESFUL:

  1. Provide a summary of employment history, experience and competitive athletic and/or modeling experience and all awards associated to substantiate your position in the sports fitness, bodybuilding and/or modeling in your country.
  2. Take a copy of your registration confirmation, hotel reservation and flight itinerary.
  3. Provide all information about the Universe Weekend.
