The Miss RDC pageant is back!

The Miss République Démocratique du Congo (Miss RDC) pageant returns after a 4-year hiatus under the direction of the nation's Ministry of the Environment. A nation tour will take place to find the 22 contestants for Miss RDC 2012 at the 11 provinces. The winner of each provincial pageant and her runner-up will advance to the national finals to be held on June 23 in Kinshasa. Contestants must be between 18 and 23 years of age and at least 1.70m. The winner is expected to represent the Democratic Republic of the Congo in Miss World 2012 in Ordos, Inner Mongolia on August 18. However, the participation still needs to be confirmed. Current titleholder is Christelle Mbila (photo) who was crowned back in 2008.
