The auditions for Zone 3, comprising the Greater Accra, Eastern and Volta Regions saw the ladies in groups of five and ten undergo measurement of their vital statistics (height, waist, bust and hips) under the watchful eyes of the judges. For those who were able to make the cut, it was all joy whiles others, simply couldn’t measure up to the required 5’7’’ the judges were looking for.
A shortlisted group of twenty ladies, out of the over hundred who turned up, faced a panel of judges in a closed Q&A session to select the five to represent the Zone at the National finals on the 30th of October. From the looks on the faces of the judges, they were having a difficult time trying to figure out who should make the final cut.
After hours of intense search, the five slots for who gets to represent the Zone, fell on Nyamikeh Frances, Tawiah Felicia, Osman Nadra, Nuno Phyllis and Dapaah Chantell. The five couldn’t hide their joy and excitement and in solidarity with their other colleagues who couldn’t make it to the finals, they hugged and embraced them obviously knowing that it could have gone the other way.
All participants, including those who even couldn’t make the shortlisted twenty, received souvenirs from two of the events sponsors RLG Communications and Ghandour Cosmetics.
From very humble beginnings, the Miss Ghana brand has and continues to be Ghana’s most prestigious and well-revered beauty pageant, serving the tourism needs of the beauty and cosmetology industry.
Over the years, it has offered a lot of young Ghanaian ladies the platform to champion a cause very dear to their heart, while enjoying the full largesse that comes with the crown.
Very noble examples of how, some past winners have used the Miss Ghana status to enhance their personal lives and that of many others, are all over.
The 2010 edition has seen the separation of the National Dance Champion series from the main pageant. According to the organizers, they want to focus on each of the two concepts to tap into the benefits that lie in both.
Apart from the Accra auditions, so far, selection processes have been held in two other zones – the Upper East, Upper West and Northern Region (Zone 1) and the Brong Ahafo and Ashanti Region (Zone 2).
Selection processes for Zone 4, comprising of the Central and Western regions will be held on Friday the 10th of September at the Centre for National Culture (CNC) in Cape Coast.
