Megan Gibbard with her documentary work on Child Beauty Pageants in the UK has explored and exploited the bad side of these pageants. Girls from 0 to their teenage years get to compete in child beauty pageants. Child beauty pageants originated in America and the UK started their own child beauty pageants in 2010. Around 20 child beauty pageants are held every year with thousands of girls competing. These pageants are set into two categories: Glitz Pageants which consists of girls wearing make-up and wearing cup cake dresses and Natural Pageants which involves natural girls (no make-up) and mostly judged by their personality. In Natural Pageants the girls undergo an interview which they judge on their personality.
