FINALISTS are gearing up for this year’s Face of KZN Model Search contest to be held on 3 September at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall.

The contest, in its fourth year, will see the winners walking away with prizes valued at R57 500 from various sponsors.

Event organiser, Bengs Nkosi, said the judges has the tough job of selecting from the 563 applicants­.

At the event attendants will rub shoulders with celebrities and have a chance to be seen on national television.

Nkosi said the competition aims to unify models of all races and gender.

“Men and women of any race were invited to enter. Contestants were carefully selected by a panel of professional judges, who have extensive experience in the modelling industry.”

Adhering to international modelling standards­ for Miss South Africa and Miss World, contestants are between the ages of 15 and 35, must not be engaged, married or pregnant.

They must currently be at school, university or college and be willing to do voluntary work with a non-profit organisation of their choice.

The contest must seek to address key issues like albinism, bullying, gangterism, racism, violence­, HIV/Aids, xenophobia, violence, teenage pregnancy and other social issues affecting the youth.

Proceeds from the event will be used to buy school uniforms for less fortunate pupils from rural schools in and around Pietermaritzburg.

Sponsors for the competition include Bengs Nkosi, CineCentre, Virgin Active, Nathi B Portrait­ Studio, 39 Degrees Photography, Greater Edendale Mall, 033Lifestyle and MoBella Beauty Salon. - Supplied.
