A radio station in Calgary in Canada has launched a competition in which listeners compete for breast implants in an online voting contest.
Amp Radio, which has named the competition the Breast Summer Ever, is asking people to submit photos of themselves along with an explanation as to why they should get the chance to have the breast augmentation, CBC News reported.
Kris Mazaruk, the station's program manager, told the news provider that the response to the competition had been positive.
"There is somebody out there who wants that prize. If it doesn't appeal to them, they won't enter this contest."
He claimed that the station was not breaking any rules by running the competition.
Some listeners, however, said they found the competition "a bit over the top".
Recently the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons lambasted cosmetic surgery group Transpire for holding cosmetic surgery parties, where those attending could win surgery in a prize draw.
