The excitement is palpable as the road to Miss Earth Australia 2023 officially begins. This year’s finalists gathered from all corners of the country, each with unique stories and dreams of wearing the coveted crown. I spent a day with these remarkable women, capturing their grace and determination alongside the talented photographer, Dave Choo.
The journey commenced with the Candidate Orientation, where the finalists were welcomed with open arms. It was a moment of anticipation and camaraderie as they embarked on this empowering adventure together. As they say, the first step is often the most memorable, and this was no exception.
Next up was a session that added a touch of glamour to the day – the Glam shot photoshoot. Against a backdrop of shimmering lights and cascading gowns, the finalists radiated confidence and poise. Each click of the camera lens captured their inner beauty and elegance, setting the stage for the competition ahead.
But a Miss Earth Australia journey wouldn’t be complete without a swimwear photoshoot. Thanks to Styelle Swim, the finalists showcased their vitality and strength in stylish swimsuits. Their vibrant personalities shone through as they posed by the pool, embodying the essence of beauty and nature.
The day continued with an outdoor shoot, courtesy of LARi.Active wear. Amidst the natural beauty of the Australian landscape, the finalists demonstrated their connection to the environment. The shoot was a poignant reminder of the competition’s mission – to raise awareness about environmental issues and advocate for positive change.
The finalists gathered for the Miss Earth Australia Welcome Dinner and Crown Reveal as the sun dipped below the horizon. The Kowboy Bar & Grill at Hurstville, NSW, provided the perfect setting for an unforgettable evening. The menu was a testament to culinary excellence, featuring delightful dishes that included scrumptious spring rolls, Pancit Palabok, flavorful Pork Sinigang, aromatic Kare Kare, and many more delectable treats. The dinner was a moment of celebration, a time for the finalists to relax, bond, and savor the flavors of diversity.
As the night drew to a close, anticipation filled the air. The journey had just begun, and the path to the crown would be challenging, but these finalists were ready to embrace every moment. With dedication, grace, and a commitment to environmental advocacy, they were set to make a mark in the upcoming competition.
Stay tuned for more updates as we follow the journey of these inspiring women, leading up to the grand finale where one of them will be crowned Miss Earth Australia 2023.
