KAMPALA/OTTAWA – The weekend saw auditions for the first-ever Miss Uganda Canada pageant kick started. Ugandans living in Canada will now have between now and February 28th 2021 to submit audition videos to be able to participate in the upcoming Pageant.
Under the theme dubbed ‘I am my Community,’ the first Miss Uganda-Canada pageant is set to happen on the 5th of June 2021 in Canada’s industrial Capital Toronto.
According to the organizers of the pageant, the auditions that started over the weekend (Saturday, December 6th) will go on until February, 28th 2021 and participants will compete in four categories.
“We have the Miss Uganda Canada, the top most crown, Emiti Emito, specially created for the Ugandan children living in Canada, Mr and Ms Newcomer; particularly for Ugandans that just migrated to Canada, and ‘I’m a mother and proud,’ an exceptional category to celebrate the beautiful Ugandan mothers in Canada,” Ms Gloria Gift the Miss Uganda Canada C.E.O explained.
Gloria added that willing participants will have to send in short 5-7 minute videos explaining why they feel they deserve the crown for a particular category.
“Emiti Emito is the only special category, where participants have to be aged between 4-17 years, but the rest of the categories are for adults. Participants will also have to send along two photos; a half and full body shot of themselves. All contestants for the mothers’ category will have to send a photo of/with their children as proof that they’re mothers.”
Gloria revealed that the audition videos that meet the set requirements, will be shared on the Miss Uganda Canada social media platforms for the public to vote for the best. Thereafter, a panel of judges will also study each video carefully and will at a later stage announce the top contenders for each category.
“The participants can send the videos directly into the inboxes of our different social media platforms, or they can email the videos to firstname.lastname@example.org,” she said.
