The beauty pageant was introduced in 1999 and unlike the traditional Kumang Gawai where the contestants from the Dayak community, the ethnic beauty pageant Miss Cultural Harvest Festival 2016 is open to all single ladies of any race and nationalities.
Attractive prizes both in cash and kind await winners. The champion will walk away with RM3,000.00, a tiara, a sash and complimentary gifts; the first runner up RM2,000.00, a sash and complimentary gifts; and second runner up RM1,000.00, a sash and complimentary gifts.
The open application to all single ladies of any race and nationalities is to encourage and attract the interest and participation of non-Dayak to celebrate in a festival that has traditionally associated with the Dayak community only.
