Models can be nominated by others through the Models Connect Nigeria web pages, or live on the night. Models will be recognized based on portfolio, passion, carriage, sense of leadership and general composure. The nominated models will therefore be invited to other prestigious Beauty events as potential Beauty Queens for more exposure and opportunities. This will prepare them to make a fruitful effort towards becoming a crowned Beauty Queen.
Other benefits for nominated and recognized models include pre-pageantry grooming and free entry, portfolio/ profile development, skill empowerment, casting calls, as well as gifts and opportunities provided by partner brands.
