Calling for nominations for Mr. Bear Perth 2021

Bears Perth Inc. is calling for nominees to represent Bears Perth in the coming year and to represent Bears Perth at the Mr Australasia Bear Festival.

This competition is not to find the most attractive, large, muscled or most hairy bear; the competition is instead to find the man that most typifies what a bear is in today’s ever-changing world. Someone who can uphold the values of self-confidence, masculinity, understanding and inclusiveness.

The title holder is expected to be an ambassador for the Bear community, promote a positive bear image, foster unity within the bear culture and be a role model for those new to the community. He must maintain an openness, respect, and willingness to work with all aspects of the LGBTIQ and wider communities.

Nominations and completed forms should be received no later than Friday 15th October 2021. If you have any questions, want to talk through with someone who has competed before, or are not sure if you are eligible to enter then we encourage you to reach out to us via one of the following methods:

  • Talk to Committee member at one of our Den Nights
  • Message Bears Perth using Facebook Messenger
  • Email

"I entered the Mr Bear competition in 2020 more for personal growth reasons and to get out of my comfort zone. It was an absolutely amazing experience and I loved every minute of the events leading up to the competition night as well as getting on stage. I really enjoyed the experience and have forged some great friendships from being a part of Mr Bear. If you're thinking about entering, my advice would be not to overthink it, just do it. Get your entry in now."
