INTSHA yoMzansi Modelling Agency will host auditions for the Face of Msunduzi pageant on June 2 at the Bessie Head Library from 10 am to 4 pm and all models are invited to take part. The joining fee is R100 per model.

This pageant is a first for Pietermaritzburg and it will comprise three categories. Little Miss and Mr Face of Msunduzi (ages 6 to 10 years old), Miss Teen (ages 13 to 16 years old) and Miss and Mr Face of Msunduzi (ages 16 to 22 years old).

The top 12 that will be chosen as semi-finalists will battle for the crown on June 23 at the finals for this pageant. Thandokuhle Dlamini of Intsha yoMzansi Modelling Agency said they want to use modelling to bring about change in the society. “The winners for this pageant will be given tasks that they need to do in the community. That will teach them to be responsible and to behave well all the times as they will be representing our municipality everywhere they go.

This title is not only about an individual but rather about our municipality and how we represent it. We are trying to teach our youngsters to be responsible in order for them to make it in life.

They must know that their actions now will definitely affect them in future if they are not careful, especially those who want to make modelling their career,” he said. Dlamini said although this is a first for the pageant they plan on making it an annual event to give other youngsters an opportunity as well.

“This will also help them with their portfolios when they want to enter big competitions. We want them to know how important it is to take part in pageants of this kind. Pageants like this help a lot in building confidence and improving yourself before going out into big competitions.

“We want to see some of them in Miss South Africa one day,” he said.

Models are urged to arrive at 10 am and bring their copy of birth certificate or identity document. For more information contact Mandisa Gasa on 084 045 5735.
