Welcome to the very first MISS CARIBBEAN UK 2014 beauty pageant Miss Caribbean UK is set to be the very first Caribbean beauty contest of its kind in the UK by providing a platform for the UK’s Caribbean ladies to demonstrate and display their beauty and intellect to the Caribbean community and the World. The pageant was created to inspire and empower women by highlighting the principle that beauty is more than skin deep. The nature of Miss Caribbean UK is ‘all-inclusive’ and it is the organiser’s intention to include as many Caribbean countries as possible. Although some of the Caribbean countries currently organise their own individual pageant’s, e.g. Miss Jamaica UK; Miss Trinidad and Tobago UK; Miss St Lucia and Miss Guyana UK, there is no ultimate crown to showcase the Queen of the Caribbean in the UK. Beauty contests are a World-wide phenomenon, however, women’s beauty contests are overwhelmingly the most popular and high-profile version, and today still hold a very strong position in the market place. The biggest, is The Miss World competition which has been running annually since 1951, and although it is less popular in the UK now than it was in 1968 when it attracted 27.5 million TV viewers, it still attracts an enormous worldwide audience – up to 3 billion viewers in 120 countries. (ref. Data source: Google ad planner 2012) The organisers have expressed that this is set to be The Ultimate Crown for Caribbean Pageants in the UK, so getting it right is paramount! We want to ensure that this event is put “on the map” correctly and includes the whole Caribbean community, both here in the UK and Internationally. Clayton Brown, one of the directors of the MCUK (Miss Caribbean UK) gave his reasons on why MCUK was established. “We want to use this pageant to INSPIRE, to INFORM, to UNITE and to raise awareness of issues relating to Caribbean peoples in the Caribbean and the diaspora. We want to use the pageant to inspire by example those who feel disadvantaged and to empower them by showing what you can do with the right attitude. We want to use the pageant to inform the audience about issues that are affecting men and women in the Caribbean and the diaspora. Finally, we want to use the pageant as a vehicle for the peoples of the Caribbean and the diaspora to unite around a common purpose, which will be to choose their Queen to represent them to the World. However, we want to bring this message with verve, style and panache”.
