THE ten finalists in the Miss World Fiji competition have attended their first official function — a photo shoot.

A statement from the organisers yesterday said the finalists met in the studios of photographer Jason Chute on Friday morning for their official photograph.

"The girls received special attention from make-up artist Salon 21, hairstyling from Jade Beauty and Spa, and sarees by Memsaab Boutique, with positioning, adjusting and many touch-ups from the team over a two-hour period before they were ready for the camera," the statement said.

Miss World Fiji national director Andhy Blake, who will train the girls in the disciplines needed to challenge for the international title, said the hard work for the finalists would begin now.

The finalists efforts are targeted for the gala night finals to be held at Pearl South Pacific on July 26.

One girl will be chosen on that night as the Fiji contestant to the Miss World competition in London in November, with an expected worldwide viewership of one billion people.

"It is the final leg of our journey to Miss World and believe me, we are going to win," said Truman Bradley, the director/organiser of the Miss World Fiji event.
