Hanoi (VNS/VNA) - Miss Vietnam Heritage Global 2018 is inviting Vietnamese women and those with Vietnamese roots living across the world to enter the pageant.

Unlike the debut season in 2016, this year’s pageant will be held as a TV reality contest with several episodes. Each episode will feature different challenges for contestants.

“All the episodes will connect to each other in promoting the image of modern Vietnamese women, who have inherited traditional values from Vietnamese culture, and at the same time, are smart, confident and dynamic,” said Trang Le, General Director of Multimedia JSC, who is the programme’s producer.

“Furthermore, because the pageant will take place at different FLC properties located on Vietnam’s beautiful coast, TV audiences can also enjoy the natural landscape of those places, and of Vietnamese nature in general,” Trang said.  

FLC Group’s Vice President Huong Tran Kieu Dung, also the pageant’s head of organising board, said the contest aims to honour the beauty, intelligence and integration ability of Vietnamese young women.

“The contest is also a great opportunity to introduce to international friends a beautiful Vietnam, which is a must-see country and a memorable destination,” she said.

Alongside the selections which are taking place in Hanoi and HCM City from now until September 16, the contest also has selections in Germany, Australia and the US, places with large Vietnamese communities. The semi-finals will be held on October 12 at the FLC Sam Son Beach & Golf Resort and on October 23 at the FLC Quy Nhon Beach & Golf Resort.

Judges include Miss Asia USA 2006 Jennifer Pham, director of the Vietnam National Opera and Ballet, choreographer Tran Ly Ly and Vietnamese-American fashion designer Cory Tran.

The finale is scheduled to be held in the beginning of next year at the FLC Ha Long Bay Golf & Resort. Alongside a crown, the winner will be given a 2 billion VND (88,000 USD) prize, including 500 million VND (22,000 USD) in cash and other gifts.
