Let's Hear It For The Boys

GQ magazine is on the lookout for a few good lads for its 3rd annual “Better Men Better World Search.” If you know a man who possesses a rare inner beauty, and who makes the world a better place by volunteering, raising money for charity, getting involved in his community, and saving damsels in distress (sorry, got a bit distracted there for a moment), you’ve got until July 8 to nominate him for GQ’s Better Man contest.

All you have to do is put together a short video (no longer than three minutes) or essay (500 words or less) and fill out a few questions about yourself and your studley nominee. Shouldn’t take you more than a few giddy hours, give or take.

GQ will select five finalists, and the winner will be determined by popular vote (to be held August 5 through September 30). The best “Better Man” will be honored at
The Gentlemen’s Ball in NYC in October, receive $10,000 for his charity of choice, be the star attraction of a GQ feature, earn $2,000 in cash, bag a Movado watch, and be revealed as His Heavenly Father's representative here on Earth (I made that last one up). Not sure any man is worth quite that much swag, but there you go.

Finalists will enjoy a trip to the ball, $2,500 for their chosen charity, and an LCD Movado watch and calculator (made that one up too; they do get a rather swish Movado timepiece). The winning nominator gets a video camera, which will perhaps allow them to catch this mythical beast and prove his existence to a doubting humanity.
