Miss Modernism Pageant and Talent Show

The Wackiest Pageant and Zaniest Talent Show You Have Ever Seen!

Every year we crown one lucky gal (or guy) and give them the title, a tiara, roses, and all-access pass to Denver Modernism Week events. They even win a $500 shopping spree at our Denver Mod Show. Our previous Miss Modernism Winners earn a prestigious seat on our judges panel for the next year.

We select ONE LUCKY PERSON to represent Miss Modernism

Our panel of expert judges look for these qualities: 

  • Retro charm & style
  • Enthusiasm for mid-century style, architecture, design, fashion, lifestyle, etc.
  • Talent that inspires, awes, and/or captures audience attention
  • How well you answer our pageant questions
