Are You Australia’s ‘Hottest Vegan’ 2018?

We Australians are leading the world with our appetite for a cruelty-free lifestyle, and people are going vegan in droves.


On the streets, in magazines, and on television, radiant, compassionate vegans are proving that a clear conscience and healthy plant-based eating are what’s hot in 2018.

PETA’s annual competition seeks the vegans who dazzle the most – with their fabulous good looks and compassionate hearts – and who use the attention they receive to speak out most compellingly for animals.

Do you have what it takes?

Past winners have used their titles to prove to the world that vegans have big hearts – and healthier ones, too.

They’ve advocated for a vegan lifestyle in newspaper and radio interviews and helped show that, on average, vegans are fitter and trimmer than meat-eaters, have a lower risk of developing heart disease, and are less prone to suffering from cancer, diabetes, and obesity – and they’re avoiding cruelty to animals at the same time.

Your creative photos and inspirational stories will show the nation that kindness is the most attractive quality of all and help us showcase the diverse faces of vegan living in Australia.

Great Prizes

PETA will choose two lucky winners to receive prize packs worth more than $600 each, one featuring a six-week online Vegan Wellness course with The Whole Connection‘s Paige Renshaw, and the other, vouchers from Luna & Soul Active and Holster. Both winners will receivea three-month Vegan Mystery Box subscription from The Cruelty Free Shop, a subscription to The Australian Vegan Magazine, clothing, and an ANAMAL vegan streetwear pack. Plus, they’ll have the bragging rights that come along with being called Australia’s Hottest Vegan 2018.

All finalists will also be featured on our website.
