GUWAHATI, June 10: Mega Entertainment, Northeast’s largest fashion and pageant event organizer, conducted auditions for the 16th edition of Sunsilk Mega Miss North East and the 9th edition of Garnier Men Mega Mister Northeast at ITA at Machkhowa here on Sunday. Prior to this, the Mega Entertainment team conducted auditions at Dibrugarh, Kokrajhar, Agartala and Itanagar.

The two pageants are brainchild of fashion entrepreneur Abhijit Singha and have been produced by Mega Entertainment. The shows will feature the most beautiful women and the most desirable men from across the eight north eastern states to travel to Guwahati for the grand finale to be held on June 29 and 30, 2018 respectively.

This year, Mega Entertainment, as a responsible entity of the community, has joined hands with the Assam State Biodiversity Board (ASBB) to raise social awareness regarding the significance of biodiversity with the theme – Biodiversity for Posterity and Prosperity. As part of this initiative, awareness campaigns will be organized at various places rich in biodiversity, and the general public will be educated on the importance of preserving biodiversity.

Abhijeet Singha, founder of Mega Entertainment, says: “In the past 15 years, Mega Miss North East has set a strong foothold across the Northeast, and today, it is the most coveted beauty pageant of the region. Because of that, there has been a tremendous change in the quality of talent that we see at the auditions. The girls are so much more confident and prepared, as compared to the previous years. They take more effort in maintaining their skin, hair and overall appearance.”

“Similarly, the contestants of Mega Mister North East start their fitness training for the pageant months in advance, and they are more confident with themselves. Now, as we march towards celebrating almost a decade of the pageant, the contestants will be in store for bigger surprises, better opportunities and the associations with many big names from the fashion and glamour industry. I’m sure this year’s auditions will bring out yet another group of talented and confident contestants from across the region,” adds Singha.

The winner of Garnier Men Mega Mister North East 2018 will get a prize package worth approximately Rs. 5,00,000. It includes the official sash and trophy of Garnier Men Mega Mister North East 2018, a cash prize of Rs. 1 lakh.
