The main objective of the event is to raise awareness through a series of actions on social inclusion issues based on the Charter of the United Nations Convention which aims to promote, protect and guarantee the full and equitable enjoyment of all human rights and all fundamental rights the freedoms of persons with disabilities and promote respect for their intrinsic dignity by overcoming the barriers that can prevent their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others.
I.D.E.A.F - International Deaf Eventments Agency Federation is committed to strengthening, improving and supporting the ever growing community of deaf men and women. The goal is to promote assistance to disabled people under European laws, supporting people with hearing problems, in order to combat the disadvantages associated with disability to achieve better integration into society and working life. The other objectives of the organization are to combat mutual prejudices between the deaf and the weak, conduct courses and information events to bring the culture of the deaf and the sign language closer to the general public and reduce discrimination against the deaf, collaborate with schools, vocational schools and other organizations or associations and companies. The pursuit of the goal of professional integration, the promotion of models, actors and deaf artists is a priority. Deaf models, actors and artists are particularly discriminated against and regularly rejected for their disability by fashion agencies and other casting agencies, so they hardly have a real chance on the labor market.
Miss & Mister Deaf Stars is a beauty contest that aims to improve talent, eliminate discrimination and generate social inclusion to reaffirm the basis of people's rights. Taking the opportunity to associate your brand with the communication action proposed by this project improves the action itself. It generates vigor and energy in the purest form of communion between people: the certainty of equality beyond prejudice. There is no more powerful form of communication, even when it is silent, it is able to involve the sensibility at all levels, reach them and, through the means, generate the emotion, the sound, the clear, strong, transforming the simple feeling , possible for the most part but not at all, a wonderful feeling for everyone.
More than 100 competitors (women from 18 to 30 years, men from 18 to 35 years) from all over the world, divided between men and women, can face the challenge of going on stage to be judged by a jury of film industry experts, photography , fashion and international journalism with the certainty of not receiving any kind of discrimination.
