The slogan to this year’s pageant is “A Beautiful Revolution” For the first time since 2007, when the pageant allowed Mainland Chinese delegates to enter, there was no Regional Competition for Mainland China, with only Foshan sending a delegate. With 16 delegates, this is the lowest turnout of any Miss Chinese International pageants.
