Daily Times Nigeria and African Times Network (ATN), the franchise owners of Miss Nigeria Pageant, on Monday, announced new innovations in this year’s Annual Miss Nigeria Beauty Pageant.
ATN is made up of a global brand of companies based in Nigeria with various other offices and operations around the world; and specialises in delivering trusted and quality products and services in media and communications.
The Miss Nigeria Pageant is the premier beauty pageant in Nigeria and is a well sought after title with world-class standards. Taking part in Miss Nigeria Pageant is a life-changing experience as it is the most prestigious beauty competition in Nigeria and the oldest pageant of all time, dating back in history to 1957.
Empowering women is Miss Nigeria Pageant’s passion and opportunities arise on many different platforms within and outside Nigeria. The winner of the pageant works for the organisation during her reign, undertaking special duties and attending special events pertaining to governmental and non-governmental organisation projects.
As the Queen Ambassador, Miss Nigeria portrays exemplary qualities and serves as a role model for young women around the country. A rigorous search for potential contestants will commence in October 2012. The casting auditions will be held in Nigeria, England and America, after which the Miss Nigeria Pageant grand event will take place in December 2012.
ATN has assembled a new board of directors and a creative team led by Beth Model Management Africa, the organisers of Elite Model Look Nigeria, to take over from Adenike Oshinowo.
Osinowo was appointed as the Creative Director for the Miss Nigeria Pageant from 2009 to 2011 to inject elegance and pageantry to the brand. During her time in office, she maintained an exemplary reputation for Miss Nigeria and remains an active affiliate of the pageant.
Beth Model Management Africa was founded in 2005 by a former beauty queen, Elohor Elizabeth Aisien, who was the 2001/2002 Miss Nigeria UK.
Further information on casting dates and venues for the 2012 Miss Nigeria pageant will be announced shortly.
