The wrinkles, the slobber, the fur.

Believe it or not, these are the ingredients for a beauty contest -- a bulldog beauty contest.

The 10th Annual Bulldog Beauty Contest took place recently in southern California and around 200 dogs showed up to compete. They wore tuxedos, rode skateboards, and boasted about their social media followers -- well, their owners did.

But the judging was based on three simple things: face, figure, and first impression.

Check out scenes from the show in the Wall Street Journal video below.

The big winner was a 3-year-old dog named Pushkin, named after the Russian poet. Read more in this Wall Street Journal report.

They didn't enter the contest, but we think these Boston-area bulldogs are pretty cute. From left to right: Mooshi, owned by Rob Donovan from Martha's Vineyard; Okie and Delilah owned by Dena Zide from Lynn; and Buster James owned by Tony Hernandez from Massachusetts.
