First entries received for Miss Matric Dance

2015-08-06 06:00

THE UD News Miss Matric Dance competition received its first entries and we are looking to crown the first ever UD News Miss Matric Dance for 2015.

Matric girls who attended their matric dance can now start entering our competition and stand a chance to win fabulous prizes.

It is the first time that the competition will be brought to you by the UD News, after its huge success in our sister publication, the PE Express last year, which saw close to 400 qualifying entries.

This year we are looking for the matric girl who has the complete look to become our first Miss Matric Dance. Entrants will be judged on their overall look – including the dress, hair, make-up and accessories – so be sure to send a photo where the judges can clearly get the complete picture.

Our judges will choose three finalists each month in August, September and October, making up nine (9) finalists. The judges will then choose 10 wildcards from all the entries we received and the public will have to vote for their favourite wildcard, which will then be the tenth finalist in this year’s Miss Matric Dance.

To enter matric girls must upload their matric dance photo on our Miss Matric Dance competition page, which can be found on our Facebook page (UD News|Nuus). At the top of the page, click on the Miss Matric Dance tab, which will take you to the entry form where you can upload your photo and details. No photos that are posted on our timeline or photos that are e-mailed to us will be accepted.


, Only matric girls may enter.

, The matric dance had to be at a school in the UD News distribution area (Uitenhage, Despatch, Addo, Kirkwood).

, No selfies or group photos (more than one girl) are allowed.

, Only online entries will be accepted (e-mail photos do not qualify).

, You may upload a photo of you and your partner, but the focus should be on the matric girl, so we strongly advise against this.

, You may enter only once for the duration of the competition and only one photo per entrant will be allowed – choose your photo submission carefully.

, Photos must be full length – we need to see the complete look of the entrant, including the dress, hair and, if possible, the shoes and accessories.

Entries close on October 30th.

) All the photos received can be viewed under the Miss Matric Dance competition on our Facebook page. You need to indicate with your entry what school you are in and when your matric dance was held
