This category of women may enter Miss SA…

  • All relationship statuses are welcome: married, engaged, divorced
  • Women with children 
  • All sexual orientations 
  • Cisgender and transgender women
  • No height or weight restrictions
  • Women with multiple piercings and tattoos 

Entrants must be at least 20 years old but under 30 as of August 13, 2023.

Speaking of the new eligibility, Miss SA CEO Stephanie Weil said in a media release: “This year, we have pushed more boundaries than ever before, and we are delighted to welcome all women who are ready to step onto our leadership platform and be the next ambassador for South Africa.

“We, as women, are so many things; we can be business owners, leaders, innovators,

influencers, mothers, daughters, philanthropists, role models, ambassadors, and queens all at the same time. Showcasing the multi-diverse nature of all of this will be at the core of the competition”.

She added: “This is a game changer for South African women, and it’s a bonus for us as an organisation, as it means we have a much larger pool of women eligible to enter.”


Miss SA organisers have also announced news of their seven-part reality TV series: Crown Chasers. 

In the series, those competing for the crown will be placed in real-life Miss South Africa scenarios that include several challenges based on the four pillars of Miss South Africa – duty, championship, empowerment, and beauty.

All the finalists will move into Miss South Africa HQ, from where they will be given tasks that will test their ability to show off their interpretation of these four pillars.

 A challenge winner will be selected each week by a judging panel. The series will culminate with the live pageant finale, where the winner will be crowned.

The dates of the Miss SA finale and reality series have yet to be determined.
