Ubuntu Pageants International is the "brain-child" of Vanessa King, President & Executive Director of Queen Nefertiti Productions, LLC. After several years of competing in pageants and being a director for other pageant systems, Vanessa decided to venture out on her own and design a new pageant system, different than any pageant currently existing. Her daughter, Cassandra Schmigotzki, is the Vice President & Co-Director for the pageant.

Ubuntu (pronounced uu-buun-too), is an African word, originating from the Bantu languages, that means "humanity to others" and the belief that "I am what I am because of who we all are." Ms, King decided on this name based on her personal beliefs of what she would do that would benefit all involved with Ubuntu Pageants International.


The mission of Ubuntu Pageants International is to build the self-confidence, poise and values of each of our delegates to obtain the following attributes:

1. Be open and available to others,
2. Is affirming of others,
3. Does not feel threatened that others are able and good,
4. Have a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that she belongs to a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.

Our goal is to instill selflessness among black women worldwide through community service, volunteerism and giving back to the community. Each delegate is required to complete a minimum number of volunteer hours within her community. Each delegate will be able to earn money for herself and for her favorite charity within her community; the pageant will donate a percentage of each delegates earnings to the delegate's charity. The pageant will also donate a portion of it's total profits to a selected charity each year in the location of the national/international competition. This is what makes Ubuntu Pageants International unique!

Our pageant is open to all black females (any percentage black) ages 13 and up from all over the world! We also have our Batebe Princess Mentoring Program for girls ages 5-12. Become a member of the Ubuntu Pageants International Family today by registering as a delegate, director, sponsor, advertiser, volunteer, etc. and help us celebrate the spirit of giving!!!!
