Beauty pageant entries open

Entries are now open for the Miss Midland GB Beauty Pageant.

The internationally recognised pageant is open to girls aged from 13 - 18 years for Miss Teen International Great Britain and from 19 - 29 years for Miss Great Britain International.

The winners of Miss Midlands will gain a place at the Miss GB final. If they win overall they will gain an all expenses paid place at the international finals held every year in Chicago, USA. In addition, the winner gets a wardrobe of clothes for the competition, an Angela May Fairbank designed dress, hair and beauty makeovers and a series of ambassadorial overseas visits to Australia, Lapland and Mongolia with the pageant’s support children’s charity The Joshua Foundation.

This beauty pageant does not just focus on physical beauty but instead showcases physical and mental beauty and crucially the achievements of today’s young women.

Beauty pageants in 2012 have been developed to promote young women and their accomplishments and to help build confidence and self awareness.

Once the girls have qualified for the final they are challenged to raise money and awareness for the children’s charity The Joshua Foundation - a charity that raises money to give children with terminal cancer once in a lifetime experiences.

The regional heats are: North-East, North-West, Midlands, South-West, South-East, Scotland and Wales. Enter free at
