Confidence in oneself is the key ingredient for one to be considered to represent Fiji in the next Miss World pageant.

That was the word from Miss World Fiji Director Andhy Blake after Saturday’s audition at Village 4 Cinema in Lautoka.

This was the first time the audition had taken place in Lautoka, or outside of Suva.

Mr Blake said the 14 women who turned up for the auditions were up to expectations.

“The response from Lautoka and we were happy with the auditions,” he said.

“Actually I saw some potential from those that took part to be in the top 10.

“The girls were confident and that was what we were looking for.”

Mr Blake said part of the criteria was looking into the background of all who came for audition.

“In the international contest, we saw the confidence played a big role in judging and that is what we are looking for,” he said.

He said the next audition would be held in Nadi on March 18.

Top 10 finalists would vie for the Miss World Fiji 2017 crown.

Last year Pooja Priyanka represented Fiji and was placed in the top 20 at the international competition in the United States.
