Kathmandu, November 3
Preparations are underway for the new edition of Miss Nepal, one of the most celebrated beauty pageants in the country.
The organiser says it shortlisted 22 candidates for the 202 edition of the event on Sunday.
The audition was held at Park Village Resort in Budhanilakantha of Kathmandu to select the candidates from among the applicants. Park Village will be the hospitality partner for Miss Nepal this year.
Now, the candidates will go through a five-week virtual training and grooming workshop, the organiser, Hidden Treasure Pvt Ltd informs in a statement.
Before the lockdown that started in March, auditions were completed in eight cities outside the Kathmandu valley, according to the company.
“Keeping in mind the present situation and after getting PCR tested (for the coronavirus) by the Mediciti Hospital (the health partner), the contestants will be residing separately at Park Village Resort where the remaining two weeks of training will be completed,” the statement reads.
