Miss Face of Mzansi is a concept which has turned into a life changing and famous brand, as a result of young people needing to promote positive role modelling, education and to seek national and global advancement for the youth in South Africa

In 2005, maiden edition of the Miss Face of Mzansi was launched and 25 girls competed for the title of Miss Face of Mzansi. Over the years, more than 10 000 participants and spectators were in attendance and the event was covered by local and national magazines.

As the project evolved and our belief in the idiom that “thupa e kojwa e sale metsi”, loosely translated this means that “a person is nurtured from an early age”, we included youth of the ages 5-15. Our experience is encouraging and the project is attracting more youth and its popularity has increased enormously.

Miss Face of Mzansi was founded by Ms Vinolia Mabele who has a string of many beauty pageant titles behind her, including Miss Teen SA Gauteng 1st princess, Miss Vaal University of Technology 1st Princess. She is supported by a very strong and dedicated team that ensures the success of the project each year.


The search for Miss Face of Mzansi 2019 has begun for young women who will follow in the steps of the current Miss Face of Mzansi.

Entries are now open for the 2019 Miss Face of Mzansi Pageant and will close on 31 May 2019.
