The move is expected to further consolidate the position of the organisers as the premier pageant organisers of
repute for young Ethiopians. It should be recalled that Miss Ethiopia-World® was the first truly national pageant ever held
in modern times back in 2003, where the top 3 winners all went to international pageants, Miss Ethiopia-World® created the
first HIV and goodwill ambassador in Ethiopia
and she was a spokesperson for the aims and objectives of the Ethiopian life foundation.
Miss Ethiopia-World® was merged with the Miss Universe-Ethiopia® pageant in 2004 and has been traditionally awarded
to the first runner up at the Miss Universe-Ethiopia pageant. Organisers now feel the time is right for Miss Ethiopia-World®
to once again be held as a separate contest as an opportunity for many young
Ethiopians who live outside Ethiopia to participate in international contests
The Miss Ethiopia-World® 2006 pageant promises to be more than just another pageant but to showcase the best
and brightest Ethiopian talent, in an elaborate stage show. Top selling Ethiopian singers are also expected to be in attendance
and the show is expected to be broadcast on TV in the United States and
Europe to an audience of over 80 million households.
London has emerged as a favourite to host the pageant but Paris and Rome are still being considered,
the key will as in most cases be sponsorship, as we would like to provide a warm and hospitable environment of all the delegates
durring their week long stay in the host city.
All well meaning Ethiopian businesses and individuals are urged to contact us for further details of how they can
be part of this ground breaking event.
