Otis Finck - Julia Kandjimbi (19) was crowned as Miss Walvis Bay 2018 on Saturday.

Elmorien Otis (19) is her first princess with Victoria Mutilifa (18) the second princess.

Annuschka Cockrell won the Miss Viewer’s Choice competition, which was conducted online, with a total of 126 votes.

Kayleigh Claassen won the Miss Photogenic and Miss Personality titles.

Nikita “Kietz” Melani, of Kietz Entertainment who organised and hosted the pageant since 2012, announced that she is handing over the reins to Monique Smithva, former Miss De Duine, Miss Walvis Bay, Miss Tourism World Namibia and a semi-finalist in the Miss Namibia 2018 pageant.

“While the aim was to showcase local beauty, we crowned a role model for the youth of Walvis Bay and an ambassador that can represent us in the Miss Tourism Namibia 2019 and Miss Namibia 2019 pageants. Miss Walvis Bay 2018 will commence with charity work and launch the One Dollar project in conjunction with the municipality of Walvis Bay as part of a social responsibility component of the pageant,” she concluded.

The 12 contestants took to the ramp in and model in beachwear, tropical casual wear and evening wear at the pageant with ‘Welcome to Miami - A Caribbean experience’ as theme.

The final top five candidates were announced and had to provide their respective opinions on the issue of the Namibian government selling the country's mineral resources to the Chinese government and investors.

Rudolph Windish was the MC, while local artists provided some live entertainment and kept the crowd entertained.
