Millionaireasia (MA), a leading multi-channel platform that connects high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs) in Asia, is spearheaded by Peter Tan, the CEO of Millionaireasia, based in Singapore. In an exciting partnership with Queen of the Orient Philippines Group, Inc., MA recently launched the revolutionary MsMA 2023 Competition at Okada Manila.
MsMA 2023 (or Ms. Millionaireasia), with the theme “Women for Women” and the slogan “Asians for Asia,” invites women aged 18 and above to embrace the challenge of becoming icons for empowering women and serving as role models in Asia. It is important to note that MsMA2023 is not a beauty pageant, and there will be no judges in this competition.
The focus of the MsMA 2023 competition is on the contestants’ ability to promote their Personality (Quarter-finals), Ideas (Semi-finals), and Values (Finals) through digital media and the sale of their videos. The engagement, support, and voting of their families, friends, and followers (FFFs) will play a crucial role in determining their success.
During the final stage, reputable entrepreneurs will provide coaching to the contestants, and the winner will be solely decided based on the highest number of votes received. Each sale of a video represents a vote, and voters have the flexibility to purchase videos from different contestants.
The quarter-finals, which allow contestants to showcase their personality in a one-minute video, takes place until June 21. The Semi-finals, where contestants will campaign their ideas and advocate for “Empowering Women” through a two-minute Idea video, will be held from June 24 to August 9. To qualify for the finals, contestants must rank in the top twenty in terms of votes, with a minimum of 2,000 votes.
The finals, the stage for promoting their “value proposition” and endorsing “Empowering Women” through a three-minute video, will be held from August 11 to September 28.
All finalists will be treated to a week of millionaire’s lifestyle program in Singapore before the Grand Celebration on October 1. Millionaireasia will announce the Champion, first and second runners-up (with a minimum of 3,000 votes), who will receive prizes worth Singapore Dollar $1 million (comprising Singapore Dollar $200,000 in cash and an exclusive 10-month contract with Millionaireasia worth Singapore Dollar $800,000), S$50,000, and S$25,000, respectively.
