Contestants from Asian counties and Chinese from all over the world are now invited to join the pageant. ATV Miss Asia Pageant 2014 (Greater China Final) and the grand final of ATV Miss Asia Pageant 2014

History of Miss Asia Pageant:

Since Miss Asia Pageant was first screened in 1985, the event has injected great vitality into the concept of competition and participation. The pageant has been an annual event of great popularity, with many golden moments cherished still
by appreciative audiences.

Miss Asia Pageant has a history of 30 years and is marching into the 26th ceremony this year. In conformity with the constantly strive for creative innovation spirit of ATV, Miss Asia Pageant has frequently recorded its progressive precedent in the beauty pageantry. In 1995, the first initiation of no age limit entry became a hot topic in the city and has created the “XueHua Gong Myth”.

In 2004, the event made a historic breakthrough in Hong Kong beauty pageantry, with contestants from Asian countries free to participate. This innovation laid a new foundation for regional beauty pageants and further promoted the culture of beauty pageantry in Asia and contestants were from Mainland China, Vietnam, India, Lebanon, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Philippines, Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Uzbek, Macau and Hong Kong to compete for the title of Miss Asia. The winner truly deserved the title of Miss Asia. The year of 2004 was also another milestone of Miss Asia Pageant, the Miss Asia China final was the first time ever held in Mainland China, the heavenly city – Hangzhou and was proudly successful.

Thereafter, the Mainland finals were held in Xi’an, Dalian, Jinan, Tianjin, Dongguan, Beijing and Guangzhou with a registration of more than hundred thousand of contestants in each year. In 2006, the pageant established the Network Division and the Taiwan region so that the whole pageant was more comprehensive and more diversified. Meanwhile, Miss Asia Pageant 2006 final was held in Macau and was an unprecedented success, helping boost the territory as a tourist attraction.

Coincided with the 60th anniversary of The People’s Republic of China, Miss Asia Pageant 2009 drew up the concept of Greater China and the contestants were mainly from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau Taiwan and overseas Chinese.

In 2010, it was the first time that the grand final of the pageant was held in Mainland China, Hefei of Anhui Province, in which the beauty and charming of Miss Asia Pageant was totally expressed. In 2011, ATV Miss Asia Pageant final set foot in the capital of international beauty contests – Hainan Island where the event provided the whole island a dazzling light show and a brilliant starry night. The final of the pageant was held in Hong Kong last two years. Audiences could re-experience the charming of the Pearl of the Orient with the beauties.

We have been hosting ATV Miss Asia Pageant worldwide for the last 26 years. Last year, we also organized Miss Asia Pageant in the U.S. East Coast. This glamorous event turned out to be an enormous success. The Pageant had attracted many contestants with a diverse Asian ethnic background. We treasured the opportunity to have our contestants to participate in ringing the NASDAQ Closing Bell with the International Women Forum. It showcased and celebrated the beauty, intelligence, and talents of Asian women.

To build upon the success of the event, we produce "NEW YORK EXPRESS"(NYE), featuring two episodes weekly, which broadcasts everyday and have our beautiful Miss Asia finalists to be the hostesses. NYE contents include reports on life style, social development, commercial activities, and Asian ethnic achievements in New York metropolitan areas. ATV's distribute platforms enhance extend coverage from North America to Central and South America.
