Given its inclusivity factor and organized to redefine the parameters of beauty, this pageant is certainly going to be one of its kind in Nepal. Alongside attractive cash prizes, the organizers of this beauty pageant have taken up the challenge to mainstream inclusivity in such beauty pageants globally. Moreover, held to defy stereotypes and embrace diversity, this pageant will see participants of all shapes and sizes, including transgender women.

Defying all boundaries surrounding beauty, the pageant is going to enable young Nepalis who identify as women to compete – no matter what their circumstances have been. Furthermore, reinforcing the idea of democratizing beauty, the winner will be selected through judges and voting.
