FIJI has failed to make it to the talent finals of the Miss World competition.

Caireen Erbsleben, who is representing Fiji at the beauty pageant, was not included in the talent final following auditions.

Pageant judges picked 13 contestants on Tuesday from Australia, British Virgin Islands, Indonesia, Ukraine, Wales, Canada, Dominica, Hong Kong, China, Panama, Cameroon, Slovakia and Trinidad & Tobago.

"Several auditions stages have taken place, with some truly wonderful performances put on by the contestants. The judges have had a hard task of narrowing the field down to a select few for the Talent Final, which will take place on Sunday 22nd of September," the pageant's official website reported.

The crowning of the 2013 Miss World will be held on September 28 with other preliminary winners.
