Beauty and body size are no longer requirements for participating in Miss Nigeria pageant

You don’t have to meet any physical requirements to participate in the 2017 edition of Miss Nigeria.

Miss Nigeria Organization is calling for entries into the 41st and Diamond Jubilee edition of the most prestigious and oldest pageants in Nigeria but it is doing a lot of things differently this time.

Built as a platform to empower women beyond beauty, select young women have a chance to represent the 37 states (including the FCT) in Nigeria. Through very various strategic activities, they will be empowered to showcase their individual talents while competing for the crown. Therefore, with a wholesome combination of vintage glamour and modern elegance, the Miss Nigeria pageant promotes positive attributes of Nigerian women and, importantly, does not include a swimsuit competition nor any other competitions that do not exude modesty.

CEO Times Multimedia, Enyinne Owunwanne said, “As a media platform, we have an opportunity to voice our opinion about so many things that are swept under the rug. Women are not just pretty faces, we’re intelligent and we’re passionate about our country. We’ve gotten to a point in the conversation where it no longer makes sense to say this is the ideal of beauty.

The pageant will also be promoting inclusion by giving female Nigerian citizens between the ages of 18 and 25 years the opportunity to participate, their height and weight regardless. All they will need is to be of good health and character, must not be married, mothers nor pregnant. They must also speak fluent English and not have any visible tattoos or body piercings.

In addition to winning the prestigious crown, the winner of the Miss Nigeria competition will be rewarded with a luxury car, N3 million, one year free accommodation in Lagos, and other amazing prizes and benefits.

Interested young women living outside the country and with valid Nigerian citizenship can also apply. To do this, applicants should submit a 2-minute video clip stating their name, age, occupation, a brief background and reasons why they wish to become Miss Nigeria 2017 competition. They should upload to YouTube and send the link to us via email at [email protected]. Or they can upload a 60-sec video clip to Instagram with the #MissNigeria2017and tag @missnigeriaorg.
