A new web site, eNowNow.com, has launched a cyber pageant on its site to help aspiring models and students gain international exposure and earn extra income.

Editor/Content Manager of eNowNow.com, Biodun Durojaiye, in a statement explained that the cyber pageant is open to all Nigerian girls above the age of 18 years.

According to him, "the way it works is that visitors to our site vote for one of two contestants whose photos are served on our home page on a daily basis. Whichever of the two is voted the 'hotter' contestant emerges winner for that day, and now faces a new 'challenger' the next day.

"A contestant who wins 10 days in a row, emerges the 'queen', and wins the sum of N20,000 and a modelling contract with Modela Modelling Agency, h e said."

Durojaiye said girls wishing to participate should send their photos to the designated email address on the eNowNow.com site.

The cyber pageant, the first of its kind by any Nigerian site, is the latest innovation by eNowNow, and comes about two months after the web portal introduced its Celebrity Internet chat series.

The Celebrity Internet chat series was introduced on March 17, 2006 and entails bringing Nigerian newsmakers and celebrities to the eNowNow.com chatroom as guests to answer questions by Nigerians from all over the world. The series aims, among other objectives, to deepen public discourse and helping young people find inspiration through interaction with their role models.

Some of those who have featured in the eNowNow.com guest chat series include Nollywood star personalities, Stephanie Okereke, Rita Dominic, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and Richard Mofe-Damijo
