SOUTHERN CAPE NEWS - In less than a fortnight, since the call for entries was first announced, more than 300 hopefuls have already applied to enter Miss South Africa 2019, with the winner – who takes home cash and prizes worth more than R2-million – set to be crowned on Women’s Day on 9 August.
The Miss South Africa Organisation has made the entry process as easy as possible which means there are no forms to download and no regional auditions to which hopefuls have to travel.
Those who wish to enter can simply visit www.misssa.co.za, fill in a number of questions and upload pictures from their social media accounts such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Says Stephanie Weil of the Miss South Africa Organisation: “We wanted the reach to be wider this year and give young women from any region of the country the opportunity to take part.
It seems likely that a record number of entries will be received this year. Last year, just short of 500 young women entered the pageant despite entry process being opened for a much longer period.
The 2019 Miss South Africa pageant will be held at Sun International’s flagship venue, the Sun Arena at Times Square, Pretoria, and will be broadcast live on both M-Net and Mzanzi Magic.
Entries for this year's competition close on June 10. To enter, go to www.misssa.co.za and click 'How to Enter' at the bottom of the page.
Sixteen finalists – all of whom will receive R25 000 – will be announced on 11 July 2019.
