Five Tibetan beauties are vying for the Miss Tibet2007 contest that 
will be held at Dharamshala later this month. These beauties will 
have to go through seven competition rounds, according to Lobsang 
Wanagyal, the man behind the pageant

He said in fact, for this year, there is one less in number compared 
to last year's. Nevertheless, Lobsang is adamant and is hopeful to 
add more contestants in coming years, as he promises to continue with 
the beauty show.

"The enthusiasm with which more than ten women applied is a clear 
sign of hope to have even more contestants in the future" Lobsang 
said at the beauty pageant's press conference.

Deeki Dolma, 20, from Gangtok, Sikkim; Tenzin Dolma, 21, from McLeod 
Ganj; Tenzin Pema, 19, from Clement Town, Dehradun; Tenzing Dolma, 
25, from Gangtok, Sikkim and Tsering Yangzom, 20, from Kollegal, 
Karnataka are contesting for this year's Tibetan beauty title.

"To represent and promote Tibet by taking part in Miss Tibet," is the 
sole purpose of taking part in the contest for Deeki Dolma from Sikkim .

Before the actual final competition rounds would begin from 12 to 14 
October, the contestants will undergo a week-long training, which 
among others includes yoga, dance and catwalk, Lobsang said. A week-
long training will be accompanied by orientation on Tibetan history, 
culture and current affairs, environmental issues, human rights and 
music and, visits to Tibetan Government-in-Exile, NGOs and institutions.

The contestants were shown "Miss Tibet in Exile", a documentary film 
on Miss Tibet pageant, directed by Tashi Wangchuk and Tsultrim Dorjee 
of Tibet Motion Pictures & Arts.

Miss Tibet 2006, Tsering Chungdak successfully participated in the 
Miss Earth contest last year and won "Miss Good-Will" title of the 
pageant.

"We hope to produce yet another memorable edition of the Miss Tibet 
pageant," says Lobsang.
