Borneo Hornbill Festival 2016 has begun and this year we are taking the grand final of Borneo Ethnic Pageant 2016 to London, United Kingdom!

The campaign continues after successful auditions in Sarawak, Sabah and Kuala Lumpur. 

Briefing for hopefuls were conducted at each audition venues between 5th February till 20th February.  Participants were able to get the big picture and every small details they needed to know prior to entering the pageant competition. We also conducted briefing for BHF Ethnic Dance Competition 2016 at each audition venues.

After the audition, the online voting  campaign began 26 February 2016 to gauge the hopefuls' popularity and earn the top voted male and female an automatic spot in the finals. The rest of the candidates will be screened based on their performance during the auditions. Remember, we are looking for ambassador material. Those who know the basics of their ethnic heritage, who are in touch with their communities, show genuine passion & pride in their own culture and have good communication skills. Confidence is a bonus that will take them to the finals.

About one week after the online voting closes, at the end of March, the results will be announced, listing the finalists eligible to proceed to the semi final stage in Kuala Lumpur on 30th April and 1st May 2016.

As the winners of each category are announced on 1st May 2016, they will then be given assignments in their respective interest or fields, to be presented during the Grand Final in London, November 2016.

Yes, the winners of each categories, Miss Iban, Miss Bidayuh, Miss Orang Ulu, Miss KadazanDusun, Miss Sabah Open, Top 2 Mr. Sarawak and Top 2 Mr. Sabah are all going to London in November 2016.
