HCM CITY— Miss World Việt Nam 2021 is seeking young women across the country to compete for the crown.
Women aged 18 to 27 who are at least 1.65m tall are eligible to enter the contest. This year’s contest, for the first time, allows contestants who have undergone cosmetic surgery.
Phạm Kim Dung, chairwoman of Miss World Việt Nam, said: “The new regulation is an up-to-date change, which creates opportunities for young women approaching the contest.”
She added that international pageant competitions have targeted perfection in appearance and body, so the change was suited to international trends.
“It also satisfies the expectations of women who have a specific feature that they would like to change,” Dung said.
Contestants can register for the contest via email firstname.lastname@example.org by August 20.
The preliminary round will take place in Hà Nội and HCM City in September, while the semi-final round will be held in October.
Contestants will be judged by Lê Xuân Sơn, editor-in-chief of Tiền Phong Newspaper and head of the jury, Miss Việt Nam 1992 Hà Kiều Anh, Miss Việt Nam 2018 Trần Tiểu Vy, Miss World Việt Nam 2019 Lương Thùy Linh, and pop star Đàm Vĩnh Hưng.
The jury will select 40 candidates for the final round in Vũng Tàu in November.
The finalists will compete in the categories of traditional costumes, swimsuits, question-and-answer sessions and evening wear. They will also take part in additional competitions highlighting their talent and charity work.
The winner will represent Việt Nam in global pageant competitions.
Miss World Việt Nam 2019 Lương Thùy Linh represented the country in Miss World 2019 in the UK. The 21-year-old was placed in the Top 12. — VNS
