Who we are
The Miss & Mister International Models organization is a national pageant for both male and female models. The winners of our pageant will represent Belgium abroad in the largest international pageants; Man Of The World, Mister Model International, Mister International and Manhunt International for the men. And for the women; Miss Eco International, World Beauty Queen en Miss Model Of The Universe. Abroad, our national winners compete against dozens of other misses and misters (from different countries) for the international main titles.
What makes us different from other national pageants is that, in addition to our Miss and Mister pageant, we also work with multiple modeling agencies nationally and abroad. Our models can also be booked through our website by our customers. Therefore we are not only an election, but also a modeling agency. All our finalists within our organization are prepared for the modeling and media world. For example, MMIM offers its models a complete portfolio, catwalk and media trainings, stage experience, nutrition and fitness coaching, beauty treatments and connections within the fashion world.
The Miss & Mister International Models organization offers a program in which the chosen finalists learn all the tricks of the modeling and media profession. The experience within our trajectory offers personal growth, professionalism to become inspiring leaders and role models and it also creates new opportunities for success.
One of the biggest obstacles that young people mainly face in order to achieve the dream career is a lack of perseverance and self-confidence. Within our organization, the finalists and title holders learn to grow in the confident, inspiring and persistent man / woman who can achieve all his / her goals and dreams.
The finalists and title holders chosen by our organization are potential models / actors / presenters / television personalities who, in addition to their external beauty and personal goals, are actively engaged in humanitarian issues and have a voice for positive improvement in the world. Our candidates are forward-thinking and are motivated to not only talk about social problems, but also to implement them in a solving form.
