The pageant is defined as an indigenous contest that prioritises cultural heritage and tourism development in as much as it recognises physical beauty and contestants re expected to excel in all these aspects.
The contest which runs during the King Moshoeshoe Film Festival was last held in Leribe in 2018.
The last edition of the film festival was suspended last year when the COVID-19 pandemic broke out.
According to the organising team, the event has been scheduled for March 26, 2022 and there will also be a reality television show produced to broadcast preparations made for the event, effective from August 1.
The chairman of Film Sector Groundbreakers - Lesotho (FSG) Aubrey Silinyana who is part of the organising team said the current call for registration is for a contest that will be held as a physical event with strict observation of COVID-19 prevention health protocols.
“The bi-monthly social media based popularity contest will begin in August this year, as well as the production on an accompanying reality TV show,” he told Metro.
Silinyana noted that registration closes on March 30, adding that it goes along with a M50 non-refundable registration fee.
“Conditions and steps to be followed are posted on the Facebook page of the pageant,” he said.
He noted that only Lesotho citizens - males and females of all sizes, shapes and heights between the age bracket of 18 and 26 are eligible to register.
