I am happy to announce three contestants for the Miss Tibet Pageant 2015. They arrived here yesterday. The three contestants are: Lobsang Kyizom, 21, from Kathmandu, Nepal; Pema Choedon, 24, from Dekyiling, Dehra Dun; and Tsering Dolma, 23, from Pokhara, Nepal.

They are all beautiful, intelligent girls, and all aspire to become role models for the younger generation of Tibetans. They all wish to serve Tibetan society after completing their studies.

A press conference is scheduled on the 5th morning. Following that, the contestants will head out for local excursions, visiting the the Dalai Lama Temple, Central Tibetan Administration, and Norbulingka Institute.

Due to the small number of contestants we have slightly changed the programme. Instead of seven rounds over three days, there will be five rounds of competitions on the Grand Finale Night: Talk, Talent, Gown, Costume, and Interview rounds will be held on Sunday evening at 7pm at the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts.

The winner of the Miss Tibet Pageant will receive one lakh rupees (100,000 or approximately 1,600 USD), the First runner-up will receive 50,000 rupees, and the Second runner-up will receive 25,000 rupees.

I thank all the three contestants, fans and supporters of the Pageant, and particularly those who contributed through our RocketHub crowdfunding page.

All the preparations are complete and we are ready for the show. Tickets will be available at the gate.

See you Sunday evening!
