15 Ugandan beauties will vye for the Miss Uganda UK 2009 title at the Troxy on June 13
1 June 2009: Ugandan beauties are all set to sashay up the ramp of fame, with the return of the biggest pageant for them in the UK.
Ostensibly the “most glamorous” Ugandan event of the year, Miss Uganda UK 2009 Grand Finale is scheduled to be held at the Troxy, also home to Miss England, on June 13. The event will see 15 Ugandan beauties vying for the Miss Uganda UK 2009 title.
The organisers will use talent, music, production, design and state-of-the-art editing to deliver the edgy, contemporary look. Miss Uganda UK 2009 has got a wide targeted core audience. The entire event will later be broadcast on TV in Uganda and will also be available on DVD for purchase.
Contestants will be evaluated by a list of top judges from the modelling, photography and fashion industries. They will base their judgment on challenges put together by a team of experts. Tasks will also be set to determine the contestants’ skills as team leaders or players, as well as their interactions with others.
If beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, the contestants will find it tough to convince the watchful Judges. For they bring with them a wealth of experience in choosing who will represent UK Ugandans for Miss World 2009 competition in Kampala.
