World’s first Orange Beauty Pageant debuts

 Preparations to stage world’s first orange beauty pageant, known as the Face of Nigeria Beauty and Style pageant has begun with the organisers- All Times Nigeria promotions Limited selecting Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, to host the grand finale, fixed for  Friday, September 23, 2016.

The theme of the 2016 edition of the Orange beauty festival is- Celebrating the best of Nigeria, while the charity work centres on promoting the rights of the Nigerian Girl-Child to education.

Consistent with our mission of celebrating one state per edition of The Face of Nigeria, Akwa Ibom State has been chosen by the Management of the Orange pageant, for promotion and celebration.
Accordingly, Akwa Ibom State would have a special status and enjoy massive attention in our communication coverage. This involves celebrating the beauties of Akwa Ibom State as the fastest growing destination, South South Nigeria.

The screenings scheduled to take place in six zones of the country starts in February 2016. The screening centres are Uyo, Enugu, Asaba, Ibadan, Lagos and Abuja.

Campaign for sales of entry forms has begun and interested contestants are directed to The Face of Nigeria website to download the forms. Forms are also available at some strategic places across the states of the Federation.
The Face of Nigeria Beauty and Style Pageant is a redefinition of the idea of beauty pageantry, a fresh breath to its principles, all inspired by a combination of tradition and contemporary ideas. In our world, beauty pageant is simply defined through the lens of an African mind, hence the difference between us and others. 

The introduction of cooking competition as one of the competitive segments is in line with our philosophy that the beauty of an African woman transcends beyond the loveliness of her physical frame. We seek to define beauty from the lens of an African and in appreciation of the virtues of an African woman, renowned for her superb beauty and skills in home making.

Through the pageant, we celebrate the beauties of Nigeria, strengthened by her diversities. Though our tongue and tribe may differ, in brotherhood we stand. Our target is to use the platform of the pageant to inspire Nigerians, create a new face for the nation and rekindle our spirit and belief that although Nigeria is walking at the moment through the valleys of pains and discomfort, surely this moment shall pass away someday. We believe in collective struggle to guarantee that Nigeria’s future is that ‘period of time in which our affairs prosper, our friends are true and our happiness is assured’

We are in search of a rounded beauty, an iconic screen goddess with an approachable personality that is inviting. Her personality must not only stand appealing but also her intelligence and capacity to make a home.

As a programme that believes in empowering young girls, the pageant even seeks to market the finalists, making them celebrities ahead of the Grand Finals. The idea is to elevate each of their fascinating personality to an enviable height, in a manner that their lives would automatically be turned around for the better, whether they win or not.

All the prizes to be won are scholarship funds to assist the winners to finance their education.
