I want to discuss on how it is to be a Pageant Director. As a Pageant Director preparing for pageant day has a major checklist, just like any other event. Lining out all the details from A to Z. So many thoughts go through your head from the day you start planning. What type of pageant do you want, all natural beauty or glitz pageant. Writing every idea, detail down that comes into your mind will help you. Then you can prioritize your checklist from important to not important.
Make sure you take every route in announcing the word out to the community. Some people may not have access to social media. So find the local newspaper, make flyers, and put a radio ad out. There is no way you can go wrong when marketing your event. You ask yourself where’s the best place to have a beauty pageant? Once you decide on the right place to host the event you are set. Start advertising the venue to the public
This is when you get a team together to help you do the minor details. Any little help you get goes a long way. As for me it’s very hard to ask for help from others. There are plenty of people who love to volunteer. It also saves you money, so first look for those volunteers.
I know I said this before but you can’t go wrong with marketing. This helps you get those contestants that you need. For example purchasing the right crowns to show the contestants. It draws them in, gets them super excited. I love seeing those smiles on their faces.
Deciding the age groups of the contestants. They need to be in the right age group. You don’t want a 5 year old competing with a 12 year old. It’s just not fair, so you have to make sure you pull in as many contestants as you can. To fill in those age gaps. I like to have at least 2 contestants in each age group. The more contestants the better. Also think about how many categories you want to have for the contestants to compete in. Such as outfit of choice, dress wear, and talent.
Making deadlines will help you stay on track. These deadlines could be for the contestants to sign up to compete. Paying all the fees for the Venue. When having to purchase any product, put a date when to buy it by. Deadlines for all the contestants music for the talent part. Very important to stay on track with these cut off dates.
Pageant Directors have a huge list of responsibilities to get done. This is just half of it, there’s so much more. It’s not an easy task, if you know exactly what you’re doing everything will be just fine. It’ll all come together, all your hard work will pay off. Then you can celebrate my favorite part is to blast those confetti cannons off on stage!
