After entering many pageants, we felt a change was needed in the industry and so we launched Miss and Mr Diamond Australia.

We are dedicated to building a system which has a positive impact on individuals and to eliminate the stigma surrounding beauty pageants today.

Contestants are able to select their own charity which means something to them to fundraise and raise awareness for as part of the competition. This platform also allows finalists to become Community Hero’s within their local communities. Charity is high on the agenda at MDA and last year’s finalists raised a staggering $67,000 between them for over 50 Charities.

Removing awkward onstage questions and replacing it with a simple question – “What’s your chosen charity and why have you chosen it”? This is confidence building at its finest!

The competition prides itself on creating a fun, positive atmosphere, stating that finalists become part of the family. Previous contestant and current Miss Teen Diamond Australia 2017, Izabella Spizick said “This was my first pageant, and it really sets the bar high. I loved the whole atmosphere and all the beautiful people I met, both inside and out. I feel that Miss Diamond is the first beauty pageant of its kind, focusing on inner strength and diverse beauties rather than the current western stereotype; hopefully, other pageants will follow this example and remove height/weight restrictions.”

MDA has also introduced a brand-new award the Diamond vLog Award, as well as more traditional side awards this award is ahead of the game. With increasing media, being surrounded by it they felt it is actually a great way for people to learn about more about the preparations leading up to the pageant by the finalists sharing their videos on YouTube and the finalists themselves learning how to create short media clips. The very best media submission will win the brand new title. All videos are uploaded to the Diamond Australia YouTube channel.

Titles include:

Miss Mini Diamond Australia
Miss Junior Diamond Australia
Miss Junior Teen Diamond Australia
Miss Teen Diamond Australia
Miss Diamond Australia
Miss Classic Diamond Australia
Mr Diamond Australia

And if that was not enough MDA has gone one step further, they have developed further opportunities for more title holders with all of their 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placements winning Gemstone titles, Miss Ruby, Miss Emerald, Miss Sapphire and Miss Amethyst.

I competed in Miss & Mr Diamond 2028, winning the first ever Master Diamond title. I had the most amazing time meeting so many new people along my journey and making new friends at the finals weekend. My Mum is now competing for the title of Miss Classic Diamond 2020 and I will be back to crown the Master Diamond 2020 and I'm excited to get to be a part of it all again. I love my Diamond family and I can't thank Charlie and Morgan enough for giving me the opportunity to compete for a national title when there are so few opportunities out there for males under 16 years old.

Charlie and Morgan Mancini are the amazing directors of Miss Diamond International. My daughter debut was in their glitz pageant Miss Glamourgenic, in Brisbane Australia, November 2. The whole organisation of the pageant before through email and phone conversation was amazing. Every question and bit of help need was given by Charlie and Morgan. Their encouragement, advice, direction and simply being really great ladies, was an Awesome experience. My daughter and I are representing Australia in Miss Diamond International 2020. Under the guidance of these sensational directors we are achieving our fundraising and challenging goals. I can't recommend any better two directors than Charlie and Morgan Mancini

A pageant with a difference, that creates individual with a difference, who contribute to society, work with fashionista, participants who are groomed to be holistic individuals. A pageant that celebrates diversity, inclusion. Pageant Directors who get the best out of the contestants but in doing so they ensure cordial long-lasting relationship is built, camaraderie is promoted and from the very small to the old are all made to feel comfortable. A pageant which is professional, safe and here to make a difference. As a mother of a teenager I can with all certainty say that this pageant has promoted and given a voice to my daughter who has traversed a long way since the time she embarked with Miss Diamond Australia and till date. Wow- is one word for this beautiful pageantry system who are trailblazers

This was my daughter’s first pageant and I couldn’t have hoped for a greater experience! We were supported from start to finish and Zoe was provided with an amazing platform to raise funds and awareness for her chosen charity. This component is by far what set this pageant miles ahead of the rest. My daughter’s personal and spiritual growth was incredible and very rewarding. The friendships she went on to make with like minded individuals made it all the more special. Thank you to the amazing directors - Charlie and Morgan for their incredible work, efforts and professionalism!

My journey with Miss Diamond Australia was one of compassion, self love and empowerment. I encourage mothers and women to feel beautiful and exude confidence the way one should. The platform to help in the community is one that I will forever be grateful. Charlie and Morgan are positive leaders and role models in the industry. Crowns and Diamonds are beautiful but the real rewards is the empowerment of inner beauty, sophistication and elegance.

Miss & Mr Diamond International and Australia is a pageant which celebrates the beauty and diversity of every individual directed by mother and daughter team, Morgan Mancini and Charlie Mancini based in Brisbane, Australia. Miss Diamond is a life changing experience and has changed mine. Miss Diamond is more than just a beauty pageant – a community hero. Miss Diamond is a contest where there is no restrictions on weight or age where everyone is welcome to enter regardless of your ethnic or religious backgrounds. Further, Miss Diamond is a fantastic platform if you are considering or pursuing a career in modelling because Miss Diamond focusses on self-love, building and improvement of self-confidence, a wonderful and supportive organisation which also strongly stands against bullying. Miss Diamond has supported many different charities in Australia and raised hundreds and thousands of dollars as every contestant of Miss Diamond is required to have a platform for any charity of their own choosing or close to their hearts to support and raise awareness. Charlie and Morgan are both kind, caring, supportive and takes the time to explain and provide information to assist and guide the contestants throughout the whole process. The Directors work very hard to provide all the contestants with the support they needed and guidance through every steps - a truly supportive and family orientated organisation which I highly recommend. I am extremely happy and proud to be Miss Diamond Lifetime Ambassador and I hope to continue to inspire others that we can all be amazing and beautiful regardless of our age and that there is nothing we cannot accomplish, if only we allowed ourselves to be free and do what our hearts desire. Miss Diamond has given me a new lease in life and to be a better me
