The 2021 Miss Guyana UK beauty pageant is scheduled to take place later this year in June. Participation in the pageant is open to UK nationals of Guyanese heritage aged between 18 and 29.
The pageant was founded by Felicia Benjamin in 1994, and over the years it has attracted many young ladies interested in exploring their rich cultural heritage. It has provided a platform to showcase the wealth of Guyanese culture. Guyanese heritage is an interesting mix of six cultures: African, Indian, Portuguese, Chinese, European and Amerindian.
The Covid-19 pandemic meant that the 2020 contest was held virtually. The five finalists displayed extraordinary poise, beauty and elegance.
After a series of dazzling performances and online voting that lasted for two weeks, Cindy Singh was adjudged the winner of the 2020 Miss Guyana Online UK pageant. Ablavi Efunshile and Rihanna Levi won second and third place respectively.
Born in Georgetown, Guyana, Cindy Geetangali Singh moved to London at the age of 9. A care home manager and mother of two young boys, Cindy said winning the Miss Guyana UK Pageant was a lifelong dream. She said being part of the pageant had helped her to retrace her roots and connect with the Guyanese community.
Registration is now open for this year’s competition at missguyana.co.uk. Entries close on Sunday 28 February.
