The world's ugliest dog has been announced, and it's a blind 15-year-old Chinese Crested Hairless named Ellie.

This isn't the first time we've seen a Chinese Crested take first prize in the World's Ugliest Dog competition. In 2006, Munchkin took the crownâ€"I've included images of him as well as other past winners. To anti-beauty!

Implications - Through the times, appreciation of beauty and triumph has been quite normal and routine. Giving applause to the complete opposite has become a unique trend and interest in today's society. People have become bored of traditional appreciation and want something new and odd to cheer for. These unique competitions pave way for new ways to celebrate the not-so-pretty things in life.
