Miss Ghana audition now in all 10 regions

The beauty pageant, which offers Ghanaian women the opportunity to showcase their talents, took a nose dive after several controversies.


But it is returning with a bang this year, 2017, following massive support from the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Creative Art and the Ghana 60 Years On Planning Committee.

At the launch of Miss Ghana 2017 held at Kempinski Hotel – Gold Coast City in Accra, Deputy Chief of Staff, Samuel Abu Jinapor, said the government was committed to supporting the pageant.

“This year marks the 60th anniversary of the country, and coincidentally the 60th anniversary of the Miss Ghana beauty. Therefore the 60th-anniversary planning committee is in very close collaboration with the organizers of the Miss Ghana beauty pageant,” he said.

"There has been a lot of support from people from all walks of life but it is prudent for me to reiterate that we expect all Ghanaians, foreign partners, corporate society, to support the organisation of the pageant,” he added.

The Minister of Culture, Tourism and Creative Art, Mrs Catherine Afeku, said Miss Ghana has brought pride to our nation since its inception especially in 2012, 2014 and 2016 when under the patronage of Exclusive Events Ghana three beautiful and ambitious Ghanaian ladies refocused the international spotlight on Ghana.

She also added that, the competition is a life-enhancing opportunity which can jolt one to greater heights and entreated young ladies interested in the pageant to have that strong desire to devote time and resources to contribute their quota to mankind.

“The ten (10) regions of our nation uniquely symbolizes our rich heritage, culture and tradition. That is one of the reasons why my office, the Ministry of Tourism (Arts and culture) supports the Miss Ghana brand and the regional tour. It is a rare opportunity to showcase this heritage as represented by the regional queens,” she said of the regional events this year.

On her part, the Chief Executive Officer of Exclusive Events Company Limited Inna Marian Patty said the pageant will be going on a ten regional tour to scout for the contestants for this year’s pageantry.

On her part, Ms Inna Patty, CEO of Exclusive Events stated that, Miss Ghana was initiated to promote our culture, traditions and proud heritage and over the years, it has produced Ghanaian women with exemplary leadership capabilities.

“I am optimistic that the event scheduled for the Miss Ghana 60 Years On will be another history in the making and exciting – the evolution of beauty. To begin with, we shall embark on 10 regional tours. We are revisiting the 10 regions. Like we say, 'Sankofa,'” she said.
