Pageants can be seen as glamorous or exploitative, depending on their organisation and purpose. With a strong dedication to helping the ‘I am able’ charity, the Miss Black Africa UK event promises to do good through the attention garnered by the winner – so maybe you know someone who might want to enter?
The event itself will take place next to the lakes in Lee Valley, specifically in Granyte House, Delmare Road, Cheshunt – and there is plenty of parking.
To enter, you must be a woman of sub-Saharan origin, aged between 17 and 35 and currently living in the UK.
As well as becoming involved in a lot of charitable work, the immediate benefits include:-
- Cash Prize
- Professional restyling and photoshoot
- Brand new web site dedicated to you
- Promotion in the media
- Auditions for acting roles
- Custom made designer dresses
If you are interested in African fashion, believe you have what it takes, but have never tried yourself before – then this could be your opportunity!
