Building on the success and popularity of the contest in 2008, People en Español magazine has teamed up with Yahoo! En Español and Telemundo Network once again to launch a nationwide search for the "51st Most Beautiful" to be featured in its "50 Most Beautiful" issue. The special annual issue, which hits newsstands in early May, highlights the 50 most popular Hispanic celebrities in TV, film and music. The "51st Most Beautiful" search provides a unique opportunity for a non-celebrity to be featured in this celebrated issue.
The contest starts today and runs through February 20. During this time, Yahoo! En Español users will have the opportunity to submit their photos at www.51bello.com to compete for the title of People en Español's "51st Most Beautiful." In the weeks that follow, 25 finalists, as selected by People en Español, Yahoo! En Español and Telemundo, will be posted on www.51bello.com. During this time users will be able to view contestant photos and profiles, comment and vote for their favorites.
