Ugandans living in Canada have between this Saturday and February 2021 to submit audition videos to be able to participate in the upcoming first-ever Miss Uganda Canada Pageant.
ChimpReports has reliably been informed that Saturday December 5, 2020, has been confirmed as the official date for participants to start sending in their audition videos and the process will carry on till February 28, 2021.
According to the organisers of the pageant, they opted for virtual auditions, as a way of adapting to the new normal and also to ensure they stick to their calendar.
Speaking to ChimpReports, Gloria Gift, CEO Miss Uganda Canada said that they created four categories which Ugandans living in Canada shall have to compete for.
“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,” Gloria elaborated.
She said that auditions for all categories will be done virtually through willing participants sending in short 5-7 minutes long 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 are mothers,” Gloria added.
“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.
Gloria further explained 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.
Running under the theme “I am my community,” the maiden Miss Uganda-Canada pageant will be happening come June 5, 2021 in Canada’s industrial capital Toronto.
