CABARITA'S Natalie Phillips is about to enter an unfamiliar world which may bring her fame and fortune far beyond her wildest dreams.

The 20-year-old dental assistant and Griffith University student was given a wild card entry into the finals of the national Miss Country competition to be held in Sydney later this year.

Ms Phillips said she was usually an observer of these things and hadn't entered a competition of this type before.

"I saw an ad for the competition on television but didn't even consider it.

"My mum and my boyfriend convinced me to enter.

"I signed up because I thought it would be a pretty fun experience.

"I thought I'd give it a shot and see how I go," Ms Phillips said.

Ms Phillips entered the competition at Warwick in Queensland last weekend and although she did not win the event, was chosen to be one of two wildcard entries to attend the competition finals.

"Last year's overall winner was a wildcard entry and the winner of the Warwick heats has just come back from New York after doing some photo shoots," Ms Phillips said.

Although her first priority was to complete her degree, if she did happen to win and options such as New York photo shoots would open up, she would take the opportunity and run with it.

"A lot of agencies attend the finals in Sydney and pick out girls from the competition."

Ms Phillips said she had plenty of preparing to do before going to the Sydney finals.

The Sydney event would be a runway competition where the girls would wear different outfits for different heats.

The Sydney finals were a little more formal and Ms Phillips needed to ensure her performance was polished and all her nerves were under control.

"There are bigger expectations for Sydney and I need to perfect my style," Ms Phillips said.

"I've had some offers from photographers already but competition rules prevent me from going ahead as yet."

The event will be covered by Woman's Weekly magazine and winners are expected to receive national television coverage.
