EXTRA chance to enter Mr, Miss and Miss Junior uShaka Marine World

Due to the high level of interest in this year’s competition, uShaka Marine World has decided to extend their exciting annual competition to include additional opportunities to enter within KZN.

This year’s pageant offers prizes and cash totalling in the region of R50 000 for the Mr, Miss and Miss Junior uShaka Marine World and R20 000 for Mr & Miss uShaka Kids World (final due to take place on June 3rd at 5pm in uShaka Kids World) . The winners will also be included in uShaka Marine World’s advertising campaigns throughout the year as well as be invited to various prestigious events hosted at this celebrated marine themed park!

uShaka Marine World will now be hosting additional regional modelling rounds which are as follows: North Coast auditions will take place at Bridge City in KwaMashu on Saturday 27 May and Boardwalk Inkwazi in Richards Bay on Sunday May 28th. South Coast auditions will take place at Galleria Mall in Amanzimtoti on Saturday, June 3rd and Mega City in Umlazi on Sunday June 4th from 11am – 2pm.

A wonderful coup is having top celebrity Dawn Thandeka King who will be on the judging panel. King is a South African actress best known for her starring role as Lindiwe “Mangcobo” Xulu, the wife of self-made gangster Muzi Xulu, in the SABC1 telenovela Uzalo. She also has experience as a radio actress, motivational speaker, MC and a musician. That’s a real incentive to attend the additional rounds where you get to meet your much loved local star.

Please remember to bring two (2) recent A4 good quality colour photographs (one face and one full body) and complete our entry form on the day. Girls aged between 13 and 16 can enter the Miss Junior uShaka Marine World and the young ladies and gentlemen who are 17 and over can enter the Mr and Miss uShaka Marine World competition.

The entrants that are selected as semi-finalists during these extra regional events will then go through an interview process, similar to that of the round one contestants, in the various areas on Saturday, July 29.

With so many exciting additions, instead of the semi-finals taking place on Saturday, June 3rd, they will now take place on Saturday, August 19th at uShaka Marine World.

According to Mpume Mthembu, Marketing Executive of uShaka, “We are also now able to confirm that the sponsorship raising period for all finalists is between September 1 and October 14”.

Most importantly of all, the date for the final event, where we crown our winners, will be Saturday, October 21stat 7pm.

Contact Shaun Mbatha during office hours on (031) 328 8000 for any queries or further information.
