    The winner of the competition, conducted in the San Francisco Bay Area, gets a trophy, $1,500 and an opportunity to fly to New York to appear before the media.

    The stars of Saturday's competition were dogs without hair, excessively flabby pooches and different flaunts that the animals were proud to demonstrate.

    The main prize of the 2018 World's Ugliest Dog contest was awarded to nine-year-old English bulldog Zsa Zsa. On the occasion of the contest, the dog's owner, Megan Brainard, even had a manicure done for Zsa Zsa. 

    This year, the festive event took place on Saturday at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma. Among those to walk down the red carpet were a bulldog mix with wrinkly skin and a Chinese Crested-Dachshund.
