New system for Miss World Fiji casting

INTERESTED Fijians thinking of applying for a place in the Miss World Fiji finals can do so this year through a new tech savvy system.
A statement from the Miss World Fiji organisers stated they introduced the new system in preparation for the official casting to take place on June 6 at TappooCity in Suva.
The new system, created by F1 Mobile, can be accessed on signup.missfiji.me or facebook.com/MissWorldFiji.
It introduces a faster way for those who are interested in casting for a top 10 spot at this year’s contest to register their details.
The new sign-up system requires potential candidates to upload photos and personal details before they are issued with a casting number that they are required to use on casting day.
“The process we designed is a faster and more efficient way for those interested in casting to register their details.
“Judges can search by categories, for example, if you want to find all girls between the ages of 17 and 20 and who are from Nadi, it is very easy to do so.
“The system also enables us to directly contact them via email and SMS.
“And with the new method for registrations, we do not use any paper so in a way, we are contributing to the global ‘Go Green’ campaign and helping Miss World Fiji to reduce their carbon footprint” said Damien Whippy, general manager of F1 Mobile.
The new system, although an efficient method to register for the castings, is not compulsory and interested candidates can still turn up on the day and register at the venue before being screened by the panel of judges.
