Who we are
The Miss & Mister International Models organization is a national pageant for male and female models. Our national winners will represent Belgium in the biggest international pageants: Man Of The World, Mister Model International, Mister International and Manhunt International for men. And for women; World Beauty Queen and Miss Model Of The Universe. During the international pageant, our national titleholders will compete against dozens of other models from different nationalities around the world, all trying to win the international title.
What makes us different from other national pageants is that despite that we are a pageant, we also work together with national and international model agencies and fashion companies. At the same time, clients can book our models through our own website, which makes us a model agency/agent as well. All of our models get personally trained by our organization to make them ready for the model and media industry. We give our models a full portfolio, catwalk and media trainings, stage experience, food and fitness coaching, beauty treatments and connections within the modelling world to give them opportunities.
The Miss & Mister International Models organization offers a trajectory of 4 months. Within this trajectory, the chosen finalists learn all the tricks they need to work in the model and media industry. The organization offers their finalists the experience in personal growth, professionality to become inspiring leaders and role models. Also, it creates new opportunities towards success.
One of the biggest obstacles which keep young people away from their dream career, is the lack of perseverance and self-confidence. Within our organization, the finalists and title holders learn how to be confident, inspiring and persevering in any goal they choose to pursue.
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 involved in humanitarian issues and have a voice for positive improvement in the world. Our men are forward-thinking and motivated not only to talk about social problems, but also to implement them in a solving form.
