The inaugural Miss and Mister Afro Aussie contest will be held at the grand old Collingwood Town Hall this May 5. The contest, open to men and women of all ethnicities, celebrates the local African community, but with a modern dresscode.
If you're interested in competing, get in touch with the organisers through the telephone number and websites we've listed – or, of course, just come along and watch. The heats will be broken up by music from DJ Carlos and a live Sudanese band.
Dress to impress and make sure you come in a partying mood (the bar should help!).
