Kandima Maldives hosts Miss World Australia 2018 finalists
Kandima Maldives has hosted Taylah Cannon, the newly crowned Miss World Australia 2018, and the top four finalists of the pageant on its tropical playground for a series of professional photography and video shoots.
The finalists’ Kandima experience was documented by Australia’s Channel 10 and a well-known TV presenter and reporter, Scott Tweedie. The girls’ interviews will air live on the morning TV show this month.
“The excitement does not end here! Taylah has become the Kandima Maldives’ official ambassador for one year during her reign in 2018 and 2019 – How Kool is that,” the resort said.
Taylah, a makeup artist and a veterinary nurse, will next participate in the International Miss World pageant in China in December. The 23-year old comes from Queensland and will bring the next-year event to Gold Coast in 2019.
Miss World Australia holds an annual pageant to identify young Australian women who exemplify beauty, talent, intelligence and compassion. It aims to create and empower role models who will serve as ambassadors to charity, enrich the perception of beauty, and enhance a new strength, energy and spirit for the advancement of women, while positively impacting their communities.
Miss World Australia is the most holistic and prestigious titles to be crowned. The winner represents Australia at this Miss World International final which includes representatives from over 132 countries around the globe.
Two Australian representatives have won the Miss World title, in 1968 and 1972.
