ASPIRING models from age eight to 25 are invited to take part in the prejudging for Mr and Miss Greater Edendale Mall title.

The prejudging will take place on Saturday, July 29, at the Greater Edendale Mall in the food court and registration is open from 8am to 10am.

Prejudging begins directly thereafter.

The pageant organisers who partnered with the Edendale Mall, Thandokuhle Dlamini and Lucky Mthembu, said registration forms can be collected at the mall management office.

Registration is R50 for those aged between eight and 12 and R100 for those 13 to 17 and 18 to 25, which has to be paid on registration.

The form must be accompanied by a copy of either an ID or birth certificate.

Models are requested to wear blue jeans and white T-shirts or vests, with the ladies in high heels for the prejudging and they should bring along swimwear.

The final, when the king and queen will be crowned, is on September 2 at the mall.

Reigning Miss Greater Edendale Mall queen, Nomcebo­ Mchunu encouraged young people to enter because it offers a number of opportunities.

“The experience helps individuals deal with shyness and stage fright as they stand in front of judges and the audience.

“Taking part in this competition also means you can then take part in other pageants and it opens doors. For example, I’ve since become the ambassador for the Indoni Cultural School,” she said.

Mr Greater Edendale Mall king, Simiso Mlangeni said his crowning is proof that modelling is not only reserved for women.

“Winning last year created a great platform for me. I’m currently taking part in the Mr uShaka Marine World competition,” he said.

Dlamini said the top 12 in the finals will be selected at the prejudging on Saturday. Once selected they will have to be part of “giving back to the community” by visiting an orphanage in Edendale.

“We encourage people to enter because I believe taking part in such events teaches entrants how to focus­ on their goals and helps them avoid things like falling­ into drug use or falling pregnant in their teens,” Mthembu said.

For more information contact Dlamini on 073 027 6084 or WhatsApp Mthembu on 076 273 5918.
