FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT KIND OF APPLICANT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
We aren't looking for a model in a crown. Our contestants are so much more than just a beautiful face; they have passion for making a difference, a willing to work hard, and determination to be heard. Our system is an opportunity to experience competing in an authentic and professional pageant setting. There isn't a pageant 'type'; there are only women who want to empower and lead!
ARE THERE ANY AGE RESTRICTIONS?
No. We welcome all ladies aged 18 and above, size 14+ to apply; married, divorced, single, with or without children. We will crown two UK Titleholders; Miss aged 18-30 and Ms aged 31+. These categories will be unaffected by marital status.
DOES EVERYONE GET THROUGH TO THE FINAL?
Unfortunately not everyone who applies will be offered a place in the grand final. We receive hundreds of applications and only select applicants will be offered a finalist place.
DO I NEED PAGEANT EXPERIENCE TO JOIN?
Not at all! We have a supportive community of experienced team and titleholders to guide you through and ensure you have the time of your life. We have plenty of rehearsals and workshops pageant weekend to help you, too. Lots of our finalists are new to pageants!
