ABOUT MISS ASIA
Miss Asia is an exquisite beauty pageant organized by Pegasus, with the primary objective of identifying and celebrating the exceptional beauty and talents of women across the Asian continent. This event casts a spotlight on the natural allure found in the picturesque coastal areas of various Asian countries. Miss Asia serves as a significant platform for young women who possess dreams brimming with aspirations and ambitions, yet lack formal opportunities or support to launch themselves into the highly coveted realms of fashion, film, advertising, and related glamour industries.
Our mission is to create a platform where untrained individuals can ignite their passion and transform it into a skill set that dazzles the discerning eye. Through our title event, we guide and nurture these aspiring women, equipping them with the poise and confidence needed to gracefully navigate any situation or circumstance.
Miss Asia is more than just a beauty pageant; it is a unifying event that brings together the rich tapestry of Asia, showcasing not only the outer beauty but also the remarkable talent and self-assuredness of young women from across the continent.
Our ultimate goal is to uncover and celebrate the authentic beauty and innate abilities of young Asian women. It is worth noting that Miss Asia, along with Miss South India and Miss Queen of India, all conceived by Ajit Ravi Pegasus, stand out as the only beauty pageants in the country that do not evaluate a woman’s beauty through bikini or similar rounds.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE ?
Applications are open to individuals who are either citizens or have resided for over 10 years with a valid resident ID in their respective nations, making them eligible to apply for the pageant.
