*Please note this list is subject to change. The Mister International Organization cannot guarantee that the list is current or link directly to those who are licensed to hold competitions prior to the next MISTER INTERNATIONAL.
After you apply and are accepted for your national pageant, you will receive the registration materials to officially register to enter the national pageant.
During the national pageant, you will participate in the categories of swimwear, evening wear, and interview.
If you take home the national title, not only will you have a year full of philanthropic and professional opportunities, but you will also be one of the countries competing on the TELEVISED/WEBCAST MISTER INTERNATIONAL stage.
The winner of Mister International must be confident. He must understand the values of our brand and the responsibilities of the title. He must have the ability to articulate his ambition. A contestant should demonstrate authenticity, credibility and exhibit poise under pressure. The men who compete embody the modern, global aspiration for the potential within all men.
The Mister International competition begins with preliminary interviews that includes a swimwear and evening wear presentation show. These preliminary events are especially important as it will be the first time the judges and fans really get to know the contestants. The preliminary competition is the driving force in selecting the Semifinalists.
The live show and final competition kicks off with an announcement of the Semifinalists. Each of these contestants will walk the runway during the swimwear segment displaying his dedication to a healthy lifestyle.
The Semifinalists move on to the second stage of the competition during the evening wear segment. The judges and fans will see the contestants' personal style as they walk the stage in their evening wear of choice. However, the exact design of the suit does not count towards the total score and instead the judges focus on how confidently each man presents himself.
From the scores given in the evening wear competition, the Top 5 competitors are chosen, bringing them to the Final Question round. Each man selects a judge at random who presents a question focused on various social, cultural and political topics. The Final Question round will determine the contestant’s ability to articulate themselves under pressure while sharing a thoughtful, well-informed response. Again, all scores are averaged and the Top 3 contestants move on to the Final Look.
During the last stage of the competition, the judges are asked to make a decision based on their overall performance through the Final Look. Rather than score, this segment is ranked, meaning the judges base their vote on who they think should win the title.
The event concludes with the host announcing the winner of Mister International. In the event that the winner is unable to fulfill his duties, the first runner-up will take his place.

WHAT IS THE MISTER INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION LOOKING FOR IN A CONTESTANT?
It is important to remember being Mister International is a multi-faceted job which provides him many life-shaping opportunities. Typically Mister International will travel the world and make appearances; he will lend his voice to help those in need; represent our sponsors and be an overall spokesperson for the Mister International Organization. In selecting a Mister International, we ask our selection committee, typically comprised of accomplished business leaders, philanthropists and public figures, to look for a young man who is comfortable in his own skin; someone who is authentic, empathetic and determined to make his mark in the world. In preparing for the competition (and life!), we advise all participants to reflect upon who they are and what are their passions. Be engaged with your community and always seek to push your personal envelope and live outside your comfort zone.

Through the organization, the winner is provided a platform for possibility based on his objectives for the year. Alongside the Mister International Organization, he will plan how to achieve his goals on the national and international scale.
