Festival Launches Contestants Today

The 2015 Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus contestants launch will be held today at the Vodafone Arena, Suva.

More than 37 contestants will be launched in the Teens, Kings and Queen categories for this year’s festival. There are 12 Queen contestants, 13 King contestants and 12 Teen contestants competing.

The contestants were selected after numerous interviews and weeks of training and the launch will provide them with the opportunity to be a brand ambassador for some of Fiji’s leading organisations and corporate bodies.

Upon becoming a brand ambassador for an organisation, the festival will provide a stage to catapult the profiles of the contestants and their sponsors across Fiji and the Pacific.

As it has always been the launch of the contestants only marks the start of series of build-up towards  Fiji’s and the South Pacific’s most annual premier festival.

The preparatory works include the selection of judges for each of the contestants’ categories, the judges for other competitions including the Kaila! Starsearch, the programme for  Businesshouse Sports, theme nights, baby show, Bula march and floats procession. Organisations will also have the opportunity to sponsor some  programmes.

The theme for the 2015 Vodafone Fiji Hibiscus is “Climate Change – Communities adapting from the Ridge to the Reef”.

The Hibiscus Events Group Inc. (HEGI) hopes to bring the much needed urgent attention to this ever escalating global problem that directly impacts our lives especially here in the Pacific. Throughout 2015, HEGI will continue to create awareness around this theme that was the focus of the Small Islands Developing States Conference in Samoa in 2014.

The Festival will be held at the Carpenters Suva City Foreshore from August 14.
