All BCRS-supported pageants and enrollments now take place on Milk.
Pageants are a longtime BC tradition, existing almost since the dawn of the community itself. Essentially, members enter a photo of their baby in a pageant and the person who hosted the pageant will judge it, ranking the photos in order of cuteness or how well they suit the pageant theme, and give placements. The higher your baby places, the more points they receive.
As your baby earns more points from placing in pageants, they will rise up the rankings and earn titles along the way. When your baby reaches 1000 points or higher, they will retire with all of the honors they received. If they are the highest earners in the month or year, they can earn an extra special exclusive title, such as Mr/Miss January 2022 or even Mr/Miss BCRS!
Pageant Rules and Formats
Detailed pageant rules and information about the different pageant formats can be found in the pageant information thread on Milk.
Currently there are three regular pageant formats: standard, advanced, and elite. We also have a few special pageant types that are not listed here, such as Battle of the Babyz, quick pageants, and "accidental" large pageants. Information about those can be found in the above mentioned Milk thread as well.
All pageants must follow the BCRS ranking system. The proper amount of babyz should be placed in all pageants unless there are not enough entries after three weeks' time.
|Pageant Type||Normal Standard||Large Standard||Advanced||Elite|
|Number of Entries||8-24||20+ on purpose||Any||Any|
|Best in Show (BIS)||25 points||50 points||35 points||45 points|
|First Place (1st)||20 points||40 points||30 points||40 points|
|Second Place (2nd)||15 points||30 points||25 points||35 points|
|Third Place (3rd)||10 points||20 points||20 points||30 points|
|Honorable Mention (HM)||5 points||10 points||15 points||25 points|
As your babyz earn BCRS points, they will unlock new titles.
|Baby Supreme||Earned at 200 points|
|Junior Supreme||Earned at 400 points|
|Senior Supreme||Earned at 600 points|
|Grand Supreme||Earned at 800 points|
|Ultimate Supreme||Earned at 1000 points|
|Ultimate Grand Supreme||Earned at 1200 points|
Your babyz will also earn gem tiers based on how many BIS placements they earn in their pageant career (not counting quick pageants).
|Topaz Tier||Earned after first placement of 2nd or higher|
|Amethyst Tier||Earned after 2 BIS placements|
|Sapphire Tier||Earned after 4 BIS placements|
|Emerald Tier||Earned after 6 BIS placements|
|Ruby Tier||Earned after 8 BIS placements|
|Diamond Tier||Earned after 10+ BIS placements|
When a baby reaches 1000 points OR has the highest BCRS points total at the end of a month, they will retire from BCRS at the end of that month with all of their titles and accolades, earning them a place in our BCRS Hall of Fame!
Retired babyz can still be entered in pageants, but will no longer be eligible to earn points. You may take your baby out of retirement and re-enroll them, but their points will revert to zero.
