A beauty pageant for fake women announced its top 10 “contestants” Monday.

The “Miss AI” beauty pageant, featuring images of female models generated by Artificial Intelligence (AI), revealed in a press release the top-10 cyber sirens selected to compete.

“It’s an exciting day for the Fanvue World AI Creator Awards as we announce the Top 10 shortlist for the first-ever ‘Miss AI’ award,” pageant executives said.

“Miss AI” is the first beauty pageant for AI-generated applicants, according to the pageant’s website. Submissions are judged based on the beauty of the nonexistent woman depicted in photo submissions. The technology used to create the image is also a significant factor, along with the “social clout,” or engagement numbers, acquired on social media platforms.

The AI-generated women display a range of physical features. Kenza Layli of Morocco is shown wearing a hijab in a library, while Anne Kerdi of France is dressed in business attire holding a microphone. Olivia C. of Portugal stares directly into the camera with pursed lips, Zara Shatavari of India sits on the ground holding a basketball and Ailya Lou of Brazil is adorned in silver jewelry.

Judges of “Miss AI” include people featured in Forbes, UNILAD, the New York Post, Business Insider, The Telegraph and FORTUNE, according to the press release. They sifted through 1,500 applicants before narrowing down the shortlist.

The winner of the beauty pageant will receive a $20,000 grand prize, the press release says. This will be split into $5,000 cash and $15,000 in business perks.
