Purpose and idea
The overall purpose of the Miss Africa Denmark event is to gather all interested Africans, Danes and other friends of Africa in a celebration of the beauty and rich diversity of African culture. African culture has a lot to offer – also here in the Nordic countries. All Africans residing in Denmark has been asked to participate and we hope the event will be backed up by all.
It is important to note that Miss Africa DK is NOT a traditional model- or beauty contest. Miss Africa is an ambassador of diversity and a positive rolemodel. She helps extend peoples knowledge of Africa, and she bridges Danish and African culture. Miss Africa has something at heart and her positive personality voices the causes that she is passionately committed to.

Through the last year our winners from 2006 and 2007 has been interviewed in Danish media several times as a representative for the African community in Denmark.
Any profit from the event is donated to a specific project for "Save the Children" in Gulu, Uganda. The organisers and performing artists affiliated with Miss Africa Denmark all work for free.
