Is there a talent section?

At present there is NO talent section.

Is there a personal interview during the pageant?

YES! ALL candidates will be interviewed and it is vital that you do well in the interview as it will form a big impact on your final score."Beauty without brains nor personality" can disappoint the judges so you must be confident in your speech but don't worry the questions are not rocket science!

Won’t it be obvious who will win on the night if a candidate receives a lot of categoric awards?

You can never tell who will win on the night purely from winning the categoric awards. This only signifies great costuming and plays a big part in reaching preliminary scores. Historically, the main title winner may not even receive a single categoric award. It’s a race until the very end that’s why you should never feel disheartened during the pageant. The interview plays the biggest part of victory.

When are the winners announced?

After each costume, the winner will be announced so she will receive her sash wearing the winning costume.
The main winners will be announced right at the end. 

Who are the judges?

The judges are usually prominent people within the transgender and gay community and are unbiased towards the candidates and score purely on merits.
