Yangon to host Miss Myanmar World 2015 in April

The Miss Myanmar 2015 contest is set to launch next month, with the winner going on to represent the country on the global stage, the event’s organiser said Thursday.
Entertainment firm Forever BEC-TERO hopes to promote the role of women in Myanmar through the event in Yangon, the company’s national manager U Soe Thura said.
“We will select 20 candidates among the applicants to participate in the contest,” he said. “The winner will have an opportunity to compete in Miss World 2015 which will be held in September in South Africa.”
The organising body arranged to present K10 million to the winner of the contest, K5 million to the first runner-up and K3 million to the second runner-up, he said.
This year will be the second time the event has been staged in Myanmar.
Nineteen-year-old Miss Wyne Lay was crowned Miss Myanmar World 2014, and was among the top 40 contestants at Miss World 2014, won by 22-year-old South African Miss Rolene Strauss.
Women aged between 18 and 23 may apply to join the contest no later than 28 April. Further details can be found at the website www.foreverbectero/mmw2015.com.—GNLM
