Not solely a beauty contest

The creative director of the Miss Nigeria pageant is quoted as saying that the contest winner will not be chosen on the basis of "physical attributes alone." She then describes the attributes the winner should possess, but doesn't describe how those things will be assessed. (Sound familiar?)

Miss Nigeria - Organisers Say Winner Won't Be Determined By Looks Alone
The organisers of 'Miss Nigeria' beauty pageant, Daily Times Nigeria, have said that the 2018 winner will not be chosen based on physical attributes alone.

The creative director of Miss Nigeria, Ezinne Akudo- Anyaoha, disclosed this at a media interview held in Lagos on Wednesday.
"We are committed to finding a young lady who defies the stereotypical perception of beauty queens as just superficial," Ms Ezinne, who won the Miss Nigeria pageant in 2013 said.

"Miss Nigeria 2018 must embody all the attributes of a strong female leader. She must be beautiful, socially conscious and committed to positively influencing young women across the country and continent."…

The organisers added that the competition is open to ladies between 18-25 years old with "exemplary leadership qualities".

"They must also be able to align excellently with the organisation's mission to empower women beyond beauty.

"In addition, six core targets would be crucial in the selection of the ultimate winner of its prestigious title this year.

"They include Education, Environment, Arts & Culture, Health, Financial Management and Technology."
