It was a dazzling affair at the Press Conference of the Miss Plus World Malaysia (MPWM) 2023/24. The media event officially launched the nationwide search for 30 Candidates who will compete in the MPWM Finals in Kuala Lumpur next year.
Held in KL Wellness City, Bukit Jalil, on the 20th of June 2023, notable and high-profile attendees were Puan Sri Nisa Bakri, Data Sri Matthew Yeoh and Yang Mulia Raja Ikram Bin Raja Abdullah Omar. Also in attendance were former pageant queens Lam Man Tang (2022/23), Sherlyn Chan Seet Leng (2022/23), Elena Tong (2021/22), Nurhidayah Hashim (Photogenic 2022/23) and Shalani Kaliappan (Elegance 2022/23).
The MPWM is the official preliminary event to the internationally renowned Miss Plus World Competition. It offers an exceptional opportunity for plus-size women to showcase their inherent beauty, both inside and out. The pageant aims to crown the woman who shows larger-than-life qualities not just in beauty but also intelligence, confidence, and the ability to serve as an ambassador for Malaysia. It will also be a channel to broadcast positive messages and stories of humanitarian efforts, wellness, education, peace, and a worldwide appreciation of diversity.
The national auditions are scheduled to take place from July to October in four other states: Penang, Johor, Sabah, and Sarawak, besides Kuala Lumpur. 30 candidates will be shortlisted: 15 for Miss Plus World Malaysia and 15 for Mrs. Plus World Malaysia.
The shortlisted candidates will be competing for various subsidiary titles, and ultimately the grand finals will take place in the first quarter of 2024. This will be the fourth MPWM event in Malaysia.
All women of all ethnicities – single or married – are welcome to participate, provided they are size 12 and above and Malaysian citizens or permanent residents in Malaysia. Candidates can sign up under two categories: Miss Malaysia Plus World for women who are 18 to 34 years old, or Mrs. Malaysia Plus World for ladies aged 18 to 45 years old.
