The upcoming event will be one of diverse activities to celebrate 89 years of Vietnamese Women’s Day, which takes place on October 20 annually to honour the beauty and talent of female journalists, in addition to emcees who are working in press agencies throughout Hanoi.
The organising board anticipates that the beauty contest will tighten solidarity among media agencies, whilst serving to inspire creativity in the workplace.
Making up the judging panel will be Giang My, Miss Hung Temple, Duong Tu Anh, the first runner-up of Miss Vietnam 2012, People’s Artist Le Khanh, Vu Thi Thanh Tam, director of the Vietnam Journey TV channel, designer Duc Hung, and doctor Nguyen Duc Tuyen.
During the press conference, Vietnam Journey TV director Thanh Tam stressed that the competition is open to married journalists, particularly those who can show confidence, knowledge, and experience during the pageant.
