However, in 1996, when OKLAMČÁK PRODUCTION took over the Miss Slovensko franchise, it temporarily lost the Miss World franchise to another organization before getting it back in 1998. Since then, in cooperation with the OKLAMČÁK Production agency and TV JOJ, the FORZA PRODUCTION HOUSE has been organizing the most prestigious female beauty pageant in the country, Miss Slovensko.

Pageant[edit]

The Miss Slovensko beauty pageant begins with a media campaign to announce the annual contest process. The application forms are published in selected print media for several weeks running and must be submitted by applicants with a photo showing both face and body to the FORZA Production House. Potential contestants must: be single, have no children, be a citizen of the Slovak Republic, be over 170 cm tall and on the day of the contest finale, they must be between the ages of 18 and 24. On the basis of these criteria, the girls are divided into regional casting sections. Each year, finalists go through a complex preparation process for the beauty contest. In addition to individual work, preparation includes two, week-long training sessions. These two sessions are devoted primarily to choreography and voice training for the girls. For these girls who are competing to be the most beautiful Slovak woman, the most interesting part is working with renowned experts in cosmetics, make-up, and hair styling. In the end, every detail can play a role in the beauty pageant itself. During this preparatory period, contestants go through their first costume and accessory fittings, rehearsals of choreography for the final evening and work with a speech and diction coach. The climax of the annual MISS Slovakia contest is the grand finale shown live on TV JOJ. Each year, finalists’ rewards include contracts with an agency, automobiles, exotic vacations and eventual nomination to prestigious international beauty contests, such as Miss World, Miss International, and Miss Europe.[3]
