Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Mrs South Africa is still going ahead and has adopted a virtual judging process.
A statement to Channel24 said that for the first time a top 50 would be selected from the current 100, before being whittled down to 25 finalists toward the end of 2020.
"The top 50 Mrs South Africa Semi-Finalists will be selected through a virtual judging process and announced on Women's Day, 9 August 2020 through a live streaming production," said media and creative director Lisa Madibe.
"The top 50 semi-finalists will continue with the empowerment program and run for the coveted title of Mrs South Africa 2021 and a new Mrs South Africa will be crowned in February 2021," she said.
The judging process will be conducted through various online methods and audited by BDO Financial Services.
The judges for the top 50 selection process are Tatum Keshwa (Miss SA 2008), Nicole Capper (Mrs SA 2018) and Matapa Maila (Mrs SA 2019).
