Silkstone student Rachael Winter has wowed judges to win a place on the shortlist of a Miss South Yorkshire competition.
The 21-year-old, of Vicarage Farm Court, will be pitted against 26 girls from across the county in the South Yorkshire Photo Heat.
Contestants are subject to a public vote in an attempt to make the final and possibly become a candidate for Miss England.
Graphic design student Rachael was approached to enter the competition after attending an event at her friend's makeup business.
She was unable to appear at the initial Miss South Yorkshire meeting but was invited to join the photo contest instead.
"It was the first I'd ever heard about the competition," said Rachael, who is in her second year at Huddersfield University.
"I think I'll definitely think about entering more competitions. This has made me really look into it."
The ten girls with the most votes will be guaranteed a place in a live catwalk-style final, at the Holiday Inn, Rotherham, on April 5.
A panel of judges will also choose a further five girls to go through, before the overall winner is announced and takes her place in the semi-finals of Miss England.
Voting closes on Thursday March 28. To support Rachael text MISS SOUTH24 to 64343.
