This year, the public has been invited to select the winner of the Miss Photogenic Category by voting online at MiyVue.com and also by texting the first three letters of the name of each contestant, to 9696.
Text to Vote:
Up to midday on Tuesday, Markysa O’Loughlin was holding a steady lead in the MiyVue.com poll with 42% of the votes, followed by Verlyn Williams with 26%, Trevicia Barbie Adams 14.6%, Desri Keeva Weekes with 8.2%, Kalia Huggins 5.3% and Jody Carter with 3.3%. However, these figures will certainly change by the voting deadline later today.
What is not yet known however is the progress of the “Text to Vote” system. This will only be tabulated at 6:00pm today, when all results will be tabulated and sealed until the announcement at the pageant, during the official coronation process.
The winner of the Miss Photogenic will receive the UPS/Hobson Enterprises Award, which includes a trophy and a cash prize of EC$300.00
The contest was officially opened on Thursday 22nd December, 2011. Much praise must be showered on UPS and Hobson Enterprises for stepping forward to support the pageant and to help provide even more excitement to the queen show, while also generating greater fan support for the contestants.
Up to midday on Tuesday, almost seven (700) persons had already taken part in the online poll and this figure may very well reach a thousand and more by the time the poll closes this evening.
