A Nazi-inspired beauty pageant dubbed "Miss Hitler 2014" is calling for attractive women to participate in the contest held on the Russian equivalent to Facebook .

Participants are requested to submit Nazi-themed "selfies" to the competition organized by a neo-Nazi group on VKontakte -  Russia's largest social networking service - along with a caption describing why they "love and revere the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler," the UK-based Daily Mail reported.

At least 14 females from Russian and Eastern Europe have entered the contest that celebrates the glorification of Nazi Germany and the fascist totalitarian government ruled by Adolf Hitler that was responsible for the Holocaust and the genocide of nearly six million Jews.

The winner of the contest is determined by the highest number of "likes" from members of a page on VKontakte that claims more than 7,000 Hitler-revering followers.


Jewelry adorned with Nazi symbolism is offered as the prize for the contest, officially-titled "Miss Ostland 2014," named in reference to the Nazi-occupied portion of northeastern Europe where more than a million Jews were killed.

The Internet media site Vocative republished a selfie allegedly submitted by Belorussian contestant Katya Shkredova donning a Nazi hat, and citing her "adoration" of Hitler because he was willing to "experiment on people."

The requirements of the competition were reportedly listed as the following:
  1. Be a woman.
  2. Be a Nazi.
  3. Be a woman Nazi.
  4. Be a woman who hates Jews.
  5. Be a member of the “Adolf Hitler” VKontakte group.
  6. Post a sexy Nazi pic.
  7. Get other Nazis to like your pic.
  8. Don’t insult other women’s pictures.
