Fourteen women are competing for the title and each must propose a humanitarian project based in Tunisia. For example, Miss Gabes is putting forth an initiative that would tackle pollution in her home region, where there is a great deal of manufacturing activity, Antar said.

In order to qualify for the competition, applicants must be Tunisian citizens, between the ages of 17 and 25, at least 1.7 meters tall, single, and have at least a high school diploma, according to the Miss Tunisia website. This year’s competition began March 16 and participants have been featured in a reality TV program following their experiences.

Although only the winner of Miss Tunisia will go to Miss World in Jakarta, runners-up will also compete in other pageants. The first runner-up will be sent to Miss International; the second runner-up will go to Miss Earth; the third runner-up will compete in Miss Mediterranean; and the fourth runner-up will be sent to Miss Arab World.

More information about the competition and contestants is available on the Miss Tunisia website.

The last Tunisian representative to Miss World was Nemlaghi Malek in 1978.

Jacqueline Tapia of Tunisia was 3rd runner-up in Miss World 1957.
