After hundreds of contestants participated in the pre-qualification rounds of the upcoming Miss World South Africa pageant, these 12 ladies have been selected to compete for the title at the end of October.

“The finalists come from varied backgrounds and experiences, including two doctors and a lawyer. What unites them is a vision for national development through the empowerment of women,” Miss World South Africa pageant license holder Carol Bouwer said.

According to a press statement, from now until October, the 12 contestants will participate in a series of rigorous competitions, including talent showcases, sports challenges and charitable initiatives aimed at highlighting the qualities that make them exceptional ambassadors of change ahead of the national final competition and beyond.

At the Miss World pageant, Miss World South Africa will be joined by contestants from more than 130 countries in its 71st edition.

In December the reigning Miss World Karolina Bielawska of Poland will crown her successor.
