General Counsel Jack Yan says, ‘We are the perfect team to bring Miss Universe New Zealand in to the 21st century, by applying integrity and transparency to the competition. It’s an exciting time, transforming this competition into something that involves all New Zealanders.’
‘Historically, a Miss Universe New Zealand winner became an instant celebrity and we will return that status to the title,’ says Miss Universe New Zealand Executive Director, Nigel Godfrey. ‘The winner will enjoy a very busy and productive year-long reign working with both Miss Universe and Variety, the Children’s Charity.
He continues ‘This is a very exciting reinvention of a worldwide recognized brand that has for too long languished here in New Zealand. For the last few years there have been a number of barriers to entry, not the least of which has been a financial demand made on the entrants. Now any eligible entrant will be welcome to join us on what is going to be a very exciting journey,’
