Young ladies aged from aged 16 to 26 took part in auditions at the Copthorne Hotel in Brierley Hill.
They were given hourly slots and the chance to hear all about the competition, meet with the judges, have their photos taken and take part in catwalk coaching.
The finals of Miss Black Country will take place on May 22 and the winner will then be entered into the Miss England finals in July.
Those who make it through to the contest will raise charity money for Beauty with a Purpose.
