When the contest launched,182 women submitted their vagina photos which were voted by around 134,707 votes people from 191 countries.

She agreed after noticing that the winner was going to receive $5000 for 1st place, $2500 for 2nd place and $1250 for the third place.
“[My boyfriend] has always told me, you have a cute, chubby vagina,” Nell told Mic. Indeed, if you look at the photo of her submission, it’s hard to disagree: Although her photo is less explicit than many of the other entries, her vulva is shaved and compact, resembling a smooth clamshell. In fact, it looks less like an actual vulva than a lot of the other vulvas in the contest.
Nell received a rating of 7.7 out of 10 making her the winner of the most beautiful vagina contest.
When Nell was asked if the vagina beauty pageant has a negative impact on women who feel self-conscious with their vaginas.
“Objectification itself is not the problem. It’s something that happens naturally to all of us, I think, both men and women.”
Even if she was voted for the most beautiful vagina in the world, she said her body is not perfect and that why she doesn’t want women to feel bad about their vaginas
“My breasts and my nose and my ears are not like yours, so each one of us is different,” she said. “It’s obvious. It would be extremely boring if it were all the same” Plus, she added, “there were only 182 entries in the contest, which isn’t at all representative of the entire population”
However, Nell is excited to get her $5000 prize and also fly to Berlin for 3D scanning of her vagina
