Miss Universe Nepal has just announced a partnership with Nepal’s leading digital payment wallet IME pay for this year. As per the new PR agreement, IME Pay will act as a digital payment partner for this Miss Universe Nepal 2021 event. This move has been widely hailed by the public as it enables the democratization of the competition through popular choice.
Miss Universe Nepal (MUN), the official franchise of the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) in Nepal, launched its pageant competition for 2021 on the 23rd of September. This year’s event is a short yet power-packed one with the finals taking place on the 30th of October. The Top 50 are already contesting for the crown as the quarter-finals are set to complete on the 10th of November.
Being a digital partner, all voting activities will take place in IME Pay digital wallet app, available in the Google Play Store for Android and App Store for iOS devices. The pageant experience is equally as important to fans as it is to contestants. Thus Miss Universe Nepal is hopeful that this partnership provides considerable progress in the shared vision of democratizing pageantry in Nepal.
With IME Pay, fans will have a popular and widely-used digital payment portal, national and international, to help their favorite contestants progress further in the competition. Like last year, the voting will be averaged alongside judging scores for the Quarter-Finals. The modality may change as the progress is made in competition.
