Miss South Africa 2022 entries will open on Friday 1 April, with the objective of crowning the next beauty pageant who, admittedly, has big shoes to fill, following recent successes by Zozibini Tunzi, Shudufhadzo Musida, and Lalela Mswane.
How to enter Miss South Africa 2022
In a bid to streamline things, the Miss South Africa organisation has hauled its entry process to its newly launched mobile application.
Entries open at 09:00 on Friday and close at 23:00 on Saturday 30 April 2022. Pageant hopefuls will have to download the Miss South Africa app on their respective app stores and, before submitting information, watch an educational ‘how to’ video.
No physical auditions will be held in this pageant process. It seems, the COVID-19 pandemic spurred innovation in the pageant contest and, this time around, hopefuls will enjoy the flexibility of submitting virtual entries.
“Those who wish to enter can simply download the app, answer a few questions and upload their entry photos. Entrants will also be required to post their 45 seconds introduction video on social media as part of the entry process,” Miss SA noted in a statement.

With the physical aspect of the Miss South Africa 2022 entry process pretty much done away with, pageant hopefuls will still need the following to successfully submit their entries:
- High-quality entry photos (instructions will be made available on the app)
- Personal identifiers (ID number, professional/career information, etc.)
- A 45-second introduction video (this is where entrants make the big sell); and
- Social media handles (Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, etc.)
For fans, the app is also the central quarters for behind-the-scenes content of the upcoming pageant, as well as an online store where supporters can purchase Miss SA merchandise and participate in giveaways.
“Read and get to know the contestants, vote for your favourite, view exclusive content, buy Miss SA merchandise and learn more about this year’s competition,” the organisation added.
