Open call to all aspiring models!!!!!
Are you ready to be DISCOVERED??? Your
opportunity to go beyond and excel in your desired fields of modelling is finally here! It’s your time to strut, pose and flaunt your unique attributes and originality at Miss ‘Black & Proud’ Africa 2014. We are looking for a model that would make a statement globally.
Miss Black and Proud Model Competition is a platform for young African models to challenge themselves and go beyond barriers set in the fashion industry. The competition is set to be a stepping stone for models who wish to evolve and grow beyond the challenges faced by African models. It is a way of putting the spotlight on African models globally.
The word “Black” used here is coined as a metaphor to represent a foundation on which African culture, heritage and ethnicity are embodied to showcase an edge and charisma that supersedes falling back to a false notion that black is just an ordinary colour. It promotes strength, unity, beauty and diversity on which successful African models all over the world have embraced and used to their full potential to become successful entrepreneurs and future brand ambassadors.
Prior to the event, applicants would be evaluated at the audition level where pre-selected applicants would be chosen. All pre-selected contestants would have the opportunity to be coached, prepped and evaluated by experts and professionals in the fashion industry. After a meticulous screening process consisting of different evaluations stages, 15 contestants would eventually be selected to participate in the running for Miss Black and Proud Africa 2014.
Professional scouts, notable fashion designers and celebrity stylists would be present to evaluate and select potential applicants. Applicants would be judged based on their creativity, originality, unique attributes and other charming qualities. Applicants are required to send in their (2-3) min video clips* as this is also part of the judging criteria. Selected applicants would move on to the next stage.
Applicants would then be judged based on their camera strengths and ability to shine through their flaws. Selected applicants would be contacted based on their qualifications to move on to the next stage.
There would be a boot camp for pre-finalists towards preparations for the main show.
Applicants would be mentored by the best in the fashion and modeling industry.
