The organizing committee is also working with various Mass Media, photographers and photo studios, videographers, designers, freelancers, and the sponsors who provide their services to competition on mutually beneficial terms. 16 ladies are selected after casting and the qualifying round for the final selection. During the final round we invite an independent jury consisting of representatives of culture and arts, show business and media, and sponsors who evaluate the finalists’ performance by 10-point system.

That is the outline of the contest in general.
