Miss Tourism Zim in Byo to scout for mod­els

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bon­gani Ndlovu Show­biz Cor­re­spon­dent

AS­PIR­ING mod­els in Bu­l­awayo are be­ing pre­sented with an op­por­tu­nity to gain na­tional fame as the Miss Tourism Zim­babwe team will be in the city to­day to scout for mod­els for the in­au­gu­ral pageant.

The au­di­tions kick off in the morn­ing at the Bu­l­awayo Rain­bow Ho­tel with the pageant ex­pected to take place on Novem­ber 26 at the Harare In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence Cen­tre.

To be part of the con­test, as­pir­ing mod­els must be hold­ers of an ‘A’ Level cer­tifi­cate with a diploma or de­gree be­ing an added ad­van­tage. The girls must be be­tween 18 and 24 years, sin­gle and have no crim­i­nal record.

Miss Tourism Zim­babwe spokesper­son Vim­bai Chikomo said be­fore au­di­tion­ing, the girls would need to fill in ap­pli­ca­tion forms.

“From 10AM to 11AM, we’ll take ap­pli­ca­tions from the as­pir­ing mod­els. There­after, we’ll start con­duct­ing au­di­tions,” said Chikomo.

“We hope to find two con­tes­tants from each prov­ince. How­ever, this will de­pend on the qual­ity of the con­tes­tants in each city. You’ll find that there might be more con­tes­tants from Harare than, say, Zvisha­vane,”

Once short­listed, the girls will travel to Harare early next month for boot camp ahead of the fi­nale in Novem­ber.

Gweru will hold its au­di­tions to­mor­row at the Zim­babwe Tourism Au­thor­ity of­fices fol­lowed by Zvisha­vane on Fri­day at the Sha­banie Mine Club.
