The National ‘Ugly Competition’ in Spain is a spin on the conventional beauty pageant that has infiltrated most countries, age groups and genders.

This unique contest stresses that “the grosser, the better.” As part of the Aste Nagusia (Great Week) festival in Bilbao, Spain, the event is a nine-day celebration organized between the Txosnas and City Hall. To create more energy, live music and fireworks are featured. A variety of kids and adults are shown pulling funny faces and rolling their eyes back into their heads to achieve the most gruesome grimace possible. 

Given the depressing unemployment prospects in the country, the competition is a humorous way for people to let off some steam.
