Entrants encouraged for Miss NI

Aspiring beauty queens from Banbridge and beyond are encouraged to join the quest for the 2016 Therapie Miss Northern Ireland at the fourth heat of the contest that will take place at The Coach, Banbridge on Saturday 12th March.

The event is the fourth of 13 regional heats scheduled to take place across Northern Ireland.

Two finalists from each heat will be chosen to take part in the grand finale at the historic Europa Hotel, Belfast on 16th May, 2016.

The glamorous black tie event will be hosted by the former Miss Northern Ireland and television presenter Zoe Salmon and UTV’s Marc Mallet.

Contest organiser Alison Clarke said: “The contest is about more than just superficial beauty; it’s about finding talented young women, who will be judged not only on their appearance but also on their personality, poise, presence and intelligence.

“The winner will become an ambassador for Northern Ireland and will be given support and guidance throughout her reign and beyond. Over the year’s we’ve nurtured many young women who have gone on to achieve high profile careers in modelling, the media and business.”

Tracy Gilligan, CEO of Therapie Clinic said, “Therapie clinic is delighted to sponsor Miss NI 2016. Every year the contestants get stronger and stronger with this year proving no exception! I am really looking forward to the Coach and all the very best of luck to this year’s contestants!”

Entrants should send a photograph with their name and address to, Therapie Miss Northern Ireland Contest, 381 Beersbridge Road, Belfast, BT5 5DT or email bookings@acamodels.com.
