Ahead of the grand finale fixed for September this year, preparations to stage the Northern Zonal Finals of the World’s first Orange Beauty Festival, known as the Face of Nigeria has begun.
The Northern Zonal Cordinator, Samaila Adoyi who disclosed this in a press statement, further revealed that the organisers of the Northern Zonal finals, Danhausawa Media Limited, has commenced the sales of the entry forms.
According to him, screenings for the event will take place in Makurdi, the Benue State capital and Abuja, respectively.
“Other Zonal Finals to be staged ahead of the grand finale are that of the Southeast, South-South, and the Southwest.
“All the four Zonal finals are to be concluded before August 2017. Winner of each region with four of her runners-up would automatically qualify for the Grand Finals, thus bringing to 20 the total number of delegates to participate for the Grand Finals from all the Zones.
“The star prize of the Orange pageant is a brand new car with N200, 000 monthly payments for one year. The second prize is N150, 000 monthly for a year, while the winner of the third prize will earn N100, 000 monthly for one year. All the cash prizes are scholarship funds meant to support the winners in pursuit of their education.
“Campaign for sales of entry forms has begun and interested contestants are directed to The Face of Nigeria website www.thefaceofnigeria.com to download the forms. Forms are also available at some strategic places across the states of the Federation.”
The Face of Nigeria is Nigeria’s first national beauty and style pageant. The three-in-one show bumper is a redefinition of beauty pageantry. The concept is deeply flavoured with Nigeria’s finest values, which is why the programme parades a cultural content that reflects the new African thinking and approach to beauty pageant.
