The Miss Digital World contest was created by Italian digital artist Franz Cerami[1][2] and organized by Monumedia SRL, a company founded in 2000 and based in Napoli, Italy.[citation needed] The contest is aimed at digital artists, advertising agencies, cinema production companies and video game programmers who have created virtual models similar to Lara Croft.[3] Enrollment is free.[citation needed]

The first edition took place in 2004.[1] All the digital models presented were female. The awards were given during a gala ceremony in Turin, Italy in December 2004. The winning author was given a gold bar worth $5000 and a plaque recording the victory.[citation needed]

The 2004 contest was won by a Chilean designer Flavio Parra.[4]

The 2006 winner was "Dark Eve", created by Mario Calamita, an Italian designer.[2]

In 2007 Franz Cerami created The Miss Digital World Calendar, named Some Like Her Digital. It is the first calendar in the world featuring 3D models. Realized in B/W and toned in azure blue, it associates to each month/model, 12 quotations by famous authors, all referring to the common theme of beauty.[citation needed]
