THE search is on for a female ambassador to represent the town.

The Journal's Carnival Queen will be crowned at Lowestoft's Marina Theatre, on Friday, June 27, and there is more than £2,500 of prizes up for grabs for the chosen girl and her two attendants.

Taking over from 2007 queen Emma Cooper, the winner will be a figurehead for The Journal over the next 12 months, and most prominently during the town's carnival procession on Sunday, August 10.

She will also be asked to make a high-profile appearance during this summer's Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival and during other engagements across the whole of Waveney.

It doesn't matter if you are a housewife, schoolgirl, single mum or married woman, if you are over 16 and think you have got what it takes, we want to hear from you.

Judges will shortlist 20 girls from the entry forms we receive based on the answers given to seven questions included in the coupon.

The contest is a personality competition and judges will be looking for the qualities they think would best serve Lowestoft.

Those picked will then be treated to a free sitting at Picture Studios, in London Road North, with their pictures featured in The Journal the week before the competition.

On the evening each girl will be asked to bring an evening gown of their choice to wear and will be designated a backstage dressing room, while their make-up will be taken care of by Clinique representatives Tracey Waterer and Karen Taylor, who work at the Boots store, in Lowestoft. They will also give all the contestants a goodie bag so that nobody goes home empty handed.

The evening, compered by local entrepreneur Mike Deal, will include entertainment provided by local singer Kerry Kennedy.

Tickets at £5 are on sale for the event at the Marina Theatre box office or by telephoning 01502 533200.

Profits from the evening will be donated to the James Paget Palliative Care Unit.

If you would like a chance to represent the newspaper and your town fill in the coupon.
