Open to all non-Muslim Malaysian females aged between 18 to 25 years with a minimum height of 168cm, the Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation (Mumo) team will be travelling to five states across Malaysia including East Malaysia.

“Unlike previous years, the vision for Mumo moving forward is to create a social media driven pageant that empowers women in Malaysia to aspire to our core values of being hip, urban, relevant and real,” said Mumo National Director, Elaine Daly.

“We want Malaysian girls who believe that she has what it takes and possess the confidence to impress us at the audition. It doesn't matter if she doesn’t speak perfect English. As Malaysians, we all speak different dialects and languages. But what’s important is that the candidate must be comfortable and confident,” she continued.

Judges for the auditions will include Elaine Daly along with TVB actress/former beauty queen Debbie Goh and actor-producer-director Hans Isaac.

The auditions will be held from 9am to 5pm at the following locations:-

• June 4, 2016 — G Hotel Kelawai, Penang

• June 11, 2016 — Horizon Hotel, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

• June 12, 2016 — The Old Courthouse, Kuching, Sarawak

• June 18, 2016 — Leisure Farm, Johor Bahru, Johor

• June 25, 2016 — The Majestic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, WP

The winner of Miss Universe Malaysia 2017 will not only walk away with the coveted title and crown, but also stand a chance to get cash and sponsored prizes worth up to RM200,000.

Most importantly, she will also be representing Malaysia at the Miss Universe pageant alongside contestants from all over the world.
