This is an incredible opportunity to represent what's great about New Zealand and what you love about being out in this country - and guess what? Your flights and accommodation are paid for!!!
"The delegate chosen to represent his peers on a global stage will not only have the inner beauty of confidence, self assurance, charisma and natural leadership abilities but he will also take pride in his outward beauty," say the Mr Gay World crew.
The event is planned for March 9-14.
Mr Gay World doesn't just involve one night of pageantry. The four-day event includes a range of fun and challenging indoor and outdoor activities to ensure the judges get chances to assess each candidate on qualities such as leadership, communication, compassion and positive attitude.
Last year's winner was Charl Van Den Berg from South Africa (pictured). "It was an absolutely incredible memory that will always stay with me," Charl recently told DNA magazine.
"A highlight was hearing some of the stories from my fellow delegates â€“ getting firsthand knowledge about the countries and how they live."
