THE winners of the 4th annual Face of KZN Model Search Contest are set to walk away with prizes totalling up to R57 500 this year.

This was revealed by the event organiser Bengs Nkosi who said the event will be held at the city hall on 3 September.

“A call for contestants to try their luck in the competition was made in April and we received an overwhelming 563 entries from all over KZN.

“The panel of judges had a difficult and stressful time cutting down the number of contestants to the finalists, who will now be competing for the crown as the new Face of KZN.”

Nkosi, a former mode, said when he started the contest in 2012 his aim was to introduce young people of all races to the exciting modelling industry.

“Apart from modelling, the contest offers young people life-skills training that are necessary in order to pursue their careers. The winners will get involved in voluntary community work with a non-government organisation of their choice. They will also visit schools and youths in various communities and give motivational talks.”

The event will be graced by celebrities, live music performances, dance, poetry and a fashion show.

Prizes for the winners have been sponsored by Bengs Nkosi, Cine Centre, Virgin Active Gym, Nathi B Portrait Studio, 39 Degrees Photography, Greater Edendale Mall, 033Lifestyle and MoBella Beauty Salon.

Proceeds from the event will be used to buy full school uniforms for destitute pupils in Elandskop.

Companies and individuals who would like to sponsor the event can contact Nkosi on 073 356 3737 or email
