International Pageants

Each Miss Tibet can go on to represent Tibet in international pageants. So far nine of the winners and one contestant have participated in a total of twelve international pageants. Although the Pageant is not a political platform, apparently it is important enough to the Chinese government to spend their time and effort to express their displeasure, and to put pressure on organisers of those pageants. On two occasions the Tibet contestant withdrew rather than being forced to wear a sash saying “Miss Tibet-China” rather than “Miss Tibet”.
