TIARA Raikabula and Mausio Tokito were crowned the 2014 Princess and Prince of the 2014 Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus Festival on Wednesday at Albert Park.

Tiara, who was Princess Solomon Islands, also won the character award while Mausio, Prince Kiribati, won the talent award.

Prince and Princess co-ordinator Noe Duncan said the 2014 Prince and Princess deserved their crowns.

"They deserved it. They were outstanding throughout the festival and gave their best in their performances and public judging," Mr Duncan said.

First runner-up for the Princess category went to Princess Tonga Hefuhelava Sakiasi, while Princess Niue Hannah Nadakuitavuki was crowned second runner-up.

In the Prince category, Ratu Seru Vosaroga was named first runner-up, while Azuo Tokito was second runner-up.

"All six winners, I believe, deserved their wins. They really did their best.

"I am not saying all the other Princess and Princes didn't do well because they all did their best but the six winners went the extra mile and put every ounce of their energy into their talent and character parade performance."

Mr Duncan said it was a relief to finally see their category's competition come to an end as the contestants could now rest.

"It has been quite a hectic schedule for the children waking up very early in the morning and sleeping late at night. And also the parents too were busy preparing costumes and so on.

"We have found our new winners. I know now until next year, we have our job cut out for us to promote these six winners as much as we possibly can."
