-What is India’s Miss TGPC (Short form IMT)?
India’s Miss TGPC (formerly known as TGPC’s Miss India) is a beauty pageant conducted by India’s No. 1 Pageant Coverage media ‘The Great Pageant Community (TGPC)’. It is world’s first ever online pageant where a contestant can apply anywhere from India and compete in the contest from the place of her convenience.
-How it is conducted?
Once the contestant has applied for IMT, a panel of jury will shortlist certain number of candidates based on listed criteria. After clearing participation fees, the shortlisted contestants then receive mail regarding the rounds of the contest. The contestants need to shoot the videos like Party Wear, Style Icon Wear, Ethnic Wear, Various Question and Answers and certain subtitles. The contestants need to send these videos to us on mail before deadline. Once the videos are received, we compile them and create rounds. All this works online through our blog, social media channels and youtube channel. Check an example of Style Icon Round of Season 6: CLICK HERE
-What is the selection criteria?
We go through the application of the girl and consider her pictures, her potential, her achievements, her educational background, her answer for why she wants to win IMT. Hence, make sure you fill your form with sincerity. Also, while we don’t really demand for professional shoot, we insist on uploading good pictures of yours. Because pictures determine the first impression on jury.
