So far, over 1,000 young hopefuls have entered the 2019 competition – more than double the entries received last year.

Stephanie Weil of the Miss South Africa Organisation says: “This year, we wanted the reach to be wider and to give more young women, from any region of the country, the opportunity to take part. In order to achieve this, made the entry process as easy as possible with no forms to download and no regional auditions to which hopefuls had to travel.

 “We also think the record number of entries is due to the fact that Miss South Africa has had a spectacular few years on the international stage. Current Miss South Africa Tamaryn Green was runner-up at the Miss Universe pageant last year while the Miss South Africa Organisation has also produced a Miss World (Rolene Strauss) and a Miss Universe (Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters) in three years. Miss South Africa has constantly evolved over time and will always continue to do so."

The Miss South Africa pageant takes place on Women’s Day, Friday, August 9, at Sun International’s flagship venue, the Sun Arena at Time Square, Pretoria, and will be broadcast live on both M-Net and Mzanzi Magic.

There is close to R3-million in prize money and sponsorships up for grabs at this year’s glittering pageant, with the winner walking away with R1-million in cash, as well as a car and other fabulous prizes. The first princess takes home R250,000 in cash, and all 16 finalists receive R25,000.

 Miss South Africa is presented by Weil Entertainment in association with Sun International and the LFP Group.
