There are a lot of beauty contests all over the world. Canadian beauty pageant is one of them. It is extremely popular in Canada. The official name of Canadian beauty pageant is Miss All Canadian. This Canadian beauty pageant came onstage more than 20 years ago. It was founded by Joanne Margaret who was a contestant of the Miss America Pageant System and whose daughter took part in different pageants from the age of 6 months. Joanne founded her own system of pageants in order to inspire young girls and boys start their careers in film, photography or modeling.
Joanne has been running her own talent agency and modeling school. Both of them have been rather successful in placing a lot of people of different ages to various catalogues, brochures, magazines, billboards, TV shows, motion pictures. The agency was also involved in promoting dancers and singers in the sphere of entertainments.
Speaking about this Canadian beauty pageant, it is necessary to say that it is not an ordinary pageant. It is considered to be a chance of having an audition because the goal of the system is to find new faces. It does not mean that weight and height are of paramount importance. The main things are personality and desire. The social growth of children and teenagers is the main aim of such contests as Kid & Teen and Mr. & Miss All-Canadian Baby. One of the main goals is to provide all participants of the contest with the opportunity to shine and express themselves at the stage, to become a real star.
The management of the system considers that the biggest gift for any child is to give him self-confidence and self-esteem. The books on the system of the pageant tell that children become Canadian beauty pageant winners just at the moment when they step on the stage. No doubt simple participation is going to give a lot of positive emotions and experience.
There are no strict requirements to the participants. The main advice to the participants is just to stay themselves. The Canadian beauty rules do not require any experience in the similar contests. It is very important that all participants can communicate at the pageant, make a lot of new friends, get new emotions which they can share with their relatives.
Being chosen to sit in the pageant's jury is a great pride. Most of the members of the jury are experienced specialists in this sphere. Though some of them just look for new ideas which can be applied in their upcoming bookings and projects.
Judges are to be objective in scoring and do not pay attention to such details as glasses, missing teeth and braces. All these are just trifles and can be considered as a part of childhood.
Judging of the contest is not based on the clothes of the participants but primarily on the personality and the natural charm of the contestants.
Judges usually keep the scores confidential. Nevertheless, after the pageant is over they may give some tips and advice which may be of great use for the contestants.
Every pageant is to take part in the main category and in optional ones. After entering the contest the participant chooses one or all optional categories where he would like to show his talent.
