Miss Newa 1133, scheduled to held on January 14, 2012 is postponed and will be organized on January 19th (Magh 6, 2069) in Pragya Pratisthan, Kathmandu. In a Facebook message posted by the organizer, Nepalese Fashion Home, CPN Maoist had requested the event to be postponed. The message doesn’t clarify the relationship between the political party and the beauty contest. The protest of CPN Maoist was one of the main reason behind the cancelation of Miss Nepal 2009.
There are 25 contestants in this year’s Miss Newa. The contestants are trained on the traditional Newa culture and tradition. The winner of this year’s contest will replace Miss Newa 2011 Sunita Dongol and represent Newa community for the year.
Here are some group photos of the contestants:
