In a historic first, the Miss South Africa pageant will have their top three finalists represent the country at three of the biggest pageants in the world: Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Supranational.

While previously having shone in Miss Universe and Miss World pageants, this is the first time a Miss SA will take part in Miss Supranational.

“We are delighted that a third finalist will now be able to shine on the international stage.

“Once Miss SA 2020 is crowned in August, and the two runners-up are announced, we will decide which candidate would do best at which competition,” Miss SA Organisation CEO Stephanie Weil said.

Last year, Miss SA 2019 winner Zozibini Tunzi won the Miss Universe title, while first runner-up Sasha-Lee Olivier attended Miss World.

“It is with great pride and pleasure that we welcome the Miss SA Organisation as the newest member of the Supra family,” said Miss Supranational Organisation president Gerhard Parzutka von Lipinski.

“Miss SA has a long history of launching the careers of many phenomenal women.

“We have been extremely impressed by the transformation the brand has undergone in the past year and we are looking forward to welcoming one of the top three of the 2020 to the 12the edition of Miss Supranational.”

Miss SA 2020 will be crowned in the first weekend of August, coinciding with the start of Women’s Month.

Entries are still open and will close at midnight on Sunday May 31.
