The 2018 Miss South Africa pageant promises to be a glittering affair to remember. Not only will the competition celebrate its 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee in grand style, but the winner will walk away with a prize package of more than R3 million – the largest in the history of the event. The bouquet of prizes that Miss South Africa 2018 will receive makes the pageant one of the richest beauty competitions in the world.
The winner will receive R1 million in cash from Cell C and Sun International as well as the use of a fully furnished and serviced apartment for the year of her reign, a Nissan Qashqai worth R445 500 and the use of designer garments for her red carpet looks.
The prize package also includes – beauty products, dental services, shoes and footwear, cell phone, jewellery, aesthetics, luggage and more!
This year Miss South Africa has announced a dramatic and exciting change to its format. Following the cut to the top five finalists, the organisers will go straight to a top two announcement. One of the pair will be named Miss World South Africa and one will receive the title of Miss Universe South Africa. Both will go on to represent South Africa on the global stage in each respective competition.
However, as there can be only one reigning Miss South Africa, the two winners will be asked one final question by the judges as the pageant draws to a close. Their answers will determine who is crowned the official Miss South Africa 2018 and walk away with the R3 million prize package.
The runner-up takes R600 000 – a R250 000 cash prize and R350 000 in prizes.
The Diamond Jubilee spectacular takes place on Sunday, May 27 at Sun International’s new flagship venue, the Sun Arena at Time Square, Pretoria. It will be televised live and simulcast on M-Net (DStv Channel 101) and Mzansi Magic (DStv Channel 161).
