JUBA, 15 March 2013 [Gurtong]-She revealed that they have already advertised for girls to apply and have so received nine contestants from within the country out of the intended twenty.

According to her, some of the contestants who reside outside South Sudan will be coming to take part in the contest.

“I urge all the South Sudanese to come and support us because the winner will represent all our country so we want to give her all the support such that she knows she is going to represent the people that love her and the country that she loves,’ she said.

According to her, the requirements include the height which she says the girl must be tall with natural colour. Other parts of the body including the hips shall also be measured as per the international standards.

Nevertheless, she said that they initially intended to have two representatives from each state but turned the idea down.

She urged that if about five or more girls from one state meet the requirement, it is better to take them adding that one person will be the winner at the end of the day.

Furthermore, she says the 2009 and 2011 representatives of South Sudan came from Jonglei state.

She said that taking two from each state becomes political and accommodation.

The international event is set to take place on 28th of September 2013 in Indonesia.

Last year for the first time in history, Atong Demach represented South Sudan in the world’s beauty contest where she earned her self the top model title and becoming the continental queen of Africa becoming fourth out of the 116 countries that participated.

She also said that people think that modelling is not a job and that it is something to get spoiled. She criticized the argument and called on the people to join the profession and support it.
