A member of the audience watches the 'Alternative Miss World' at The Hippodrome, London, October 22, 2004. Running for 36 years the contest allows entrants of any gender, nationality or age: the current winner prior to 2004 being an 80-year-old Russian woman. The organisers state entrants are 'neither male nor female', and the event 'is modelled more on (the dog show) Crufts than the world famous beauty pagent'. REUTERS/Toby Melville TM/WS
