Miss SA winners who are 2019's ambassadors: 
Ntando Kunene-Mthethwa (Miss SA 2016), Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala (2010), Tamaryn Green (2018), Liesl Laurie (2015) and Rolene Strauss (Miss SA and Miss World 2014)

Miss South Africa's future was touch-and-go for a while but now the 2019 pageant is back on track, with five winners (in the pic above) replacing Cell C on the billboards.

Cell C, who was the headline sponsor for five years, has decided they've got better things to do with their money and it's a case of good riddance because they were too overly-dominant, hogging the sash i.e. Miss SA bordered on being Miss Cell C. 

The Miss South Africa organisers have clearly managed to pull together cash from other sources so hopefully their new sponsors don't make it all about them instead of the contestants and winner.

The winner will be crowned at the Sun Arena, Times Square in Pretoria on Women's Day (Friday, 9 August) and the pageant will air live on Mzansi Magic and M-Net.

Prizes for 2019

The winner's prizes:

1. R1-million, which makes it a game of Survivor. This is the third year that there's been a million on the table.

2. The title of Miss South Africa.

3. A car and,

4. Other unconfirmed prizes.

For others:

- R250,000 for the runner-up.

- R25,000 for each of the Top 16.

Who is the competition looking for?

This from the organisers:

During her reign, Miss SA needs to be the people’s queen, as she will be spending most of her time engaging with people from diverse cultures in South Africa, as well as representing our nation on an international platform.

Miss South Africa’s qualities are that she is compassionate and inspirational. She is a confident woman, comfortable with speaking to CEOs and dignitaries, while fearlessly using her voice for the charitable cause of her choosing.

Miss SA is hard-working, charismatic and organised and has the world at her feet.
