Myanmar has planned to participate in Miss Universe contest in the wake of Miss Internet successes for Myanmar pageants in the international contests, according to a local media report.

Khin Wint Wah, Miss Myanmar Supranational, won Miss Internet and other related awards at the world’s third largest contest finale in Minsk of Belarus.

Her success nearly matched a similar internet voting victory by Myanmar model Nang Khin Zeyar a year ago at Miss International contest.

Miss Universe is the largest beauty contest in the world.

Hello Madam Media is in talks with Miss Universe Organization for making Myanmar join the most prestigious event.

“We didn’t have any plan to participate in this year’s event, but in next year’s event. They have urged us to participate this year, so we are planning for it,” Soe Yu Wai, managing director of Hello Madam Media said.

Miss Myanmar Universe event will be organized in National Theatre in Yangon on 3 October.

Myanmar last joined the contest in 1961.
