2013 Miss Seychelles... Another World pageant -Winners receive prizes


29-May-2013

Winners receive prizes

The 14 contestants – with crowned Miss Seychelles... Another World 2013 Agnes Gerry – were the guests of honour at the event held to thank the sponsors and all those who had made the event possible.

With an extensive list of prizes, the awards are usually given in a separate event held after the crowning ceremony.

Speaking to Seychelles Nation during the event, Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) chief executive Elsia Grandcourt said without the support of their many sponsors, the event would not have been possible.

“Without our sponsors, we would not have been able to have all these interesting prizes, and this year’s event is much more than special since we have been able to give all 14 contestants a variety of prizes, which include ipad 2 to tablets, bath and body works, and other beauty products,” she said.

“As for how successful the event was, we will leave that to the public to judge, and we are still taking in feedback. With the recent spate of bad weather, we in fact had only one day to get the girls used to the stage at Eden Plaza, although I think they did great despite everything.”

She added that they worked on their weaknesses after last year’s show, and will again identify weak points in this year’s event.

“We also thank Seychelles tourism ambassador Alessandro Pindilli, who donated three dresses to Miss Seychelles 2013 Agnes Gerry to take with her when she competes in the Miss World contest in September in Indonesia,” she said.

Photo shoots have already been organised for Miss Gerry to showcase the dresses, which is said to be from popular overseas designers. This is with the aim of getting her to build her confidence further.
