    Online platform Fanvue sponsored a “Miss AI” pageant, and a winner has been crowned.Fanvue is the only platform of its kind to allow AI-generated content from creators.The top three Fanvue World AI Creator Awards prizes are worth a combined $20,000.

    Fanvue held its first “Miss AI” contest, where its finalists aren’t human but, instead, artificial intelligence personas from around the world.

    The winner and runners-up were announced on Monday. Personas from Morocco, France, and Portugal topped the list.

    Fanvue is used by creators to share monetized content with their followers. But unlike similar sites — namely OnlyFans — it allows AI-generated content to be posted, as long as the content follows community guidelines and is clearly labeled as artificial.

    The company announced in April that it would hold the Fanvue World AI Creator Awards and announced the top 10 finalists for the Miss AI title in June.

    One and a half thousand creators entered the contest, and the creator who won Miss AI is to receive a prize totaling $13,000, including a $5,000 cash prize and PR support.

    The judging panel consists of a pageant historian, a media entrepreneur, and two AI creators. Contestants were judged on their realism, tech, and social clout.

    AI’s role in social media remains a topic of debate. Deepfake porn, AI chatbots with the faces of celebrities, and virtual assistants whose voices sound familiar have prompted calls for stricter regulation on how generative AI is used.

    The Fanvue World AI Creator Awards offers a window into a world where AI-generated personas are taken seriously — even if all finalists meet fairly typical beauty standards.

    Here’s who won the pageant, and rest of the top 10 finalists:
