Two women from Caerphilly County Borough are in contention to be crowned Miss Wales 2019.
Katy Farr, 23 and Rebekah Weston, 19, are both in with a chance of being crowned at the competition final in April.
The final will be spread over three days and will take place at the Holland House Hotel in Cardiff and The Riverfront in Newport.
The winner will be determined by judges and a public vote, which closes at 1pm on Friday, April 12. The winner will be announced on Saturday, April 13.
The winner of Miss Wales 2019 will compete at Miss World later in the year.
There will be around 40 competitors from across Wales who will be tasked with fundraising for the Miss World-associated charity, Beauty With A Purpose, which helps disadvantaged children across the globe.
The winner of Miss Wales gets a host of prizes and represents Wales at the prestigious Miss World final. In recent years, the Miss Wales competition has raised more than £600,000 for charity.
Paula Abbandonato, organiser of Miss Wales, said: “Every year we have an amazing line up of young women come together at Miss Wales.
“The girls who make up Team Caerphilly for 2019 are bright, ambitious and energetic young people. I hope they have the best of times with us and enjoy the Miss Wales experience which is committed to empowering young women, raising money for good causes and giving girls the opportunity to make friends and have fun all through the glamour of pageantry.”
Katy, a 23-year-old aspiring singer from Caerphilly who works part-time as a gym assistant, said: “I wanted to enter Miss Wales as a new adventure for myself. I love giving myself new goals.
“I feel honoured to be a finalist as it’s going to be such a great experience for me and for being a role model to the younger generation.”
She added: “Miss Wales has taught me so much about myself and helped me achieve new goals.
“It has been great raising money for disadvantaged children through Beauty with a Purpose.”
Rebekah is a 19-year-old admin executive from Ystrad Mynach, who is set to start an apprenticeship with the Home Office.
She said: “My sisters competed in Miss Caerphilly before and encouraged me to take part.
“I’m out of my comfort zone but it’s a real sisterhood. It’s nice to experience something different.”
She added: “I had no confidence whatsoever. Miss Wales makes you do things to build confidence.
“For someone who’s always been a tomboy it’s great to be accepted.”
