The grand finale will take place at Aiman Mall, Kota Samarahan this September 24.
According to event director Dayang Nurulfiza Awang Osman, Ratu Bikers SBF 2016 is taking a different approach in beauty pageants as it is focused on the field of motoring.
“We are looking for participants who are smart, charismatic, and knowledgeable in the field of motoring. She should also be able to raise Sarawakian culture to the eyes of the world through commercial channels.
“I believe that all the finalists chosen today have what it takes to become the first queen of bikers… but only one will eventually claim the maiden crown,” said Dayang.
Dayang was part of the judging panel for the audition alongside Tegar Bikers vice president Masli Bojeng, and other professionals in the local beauty pageant industry including Leya Ameera Annuar Rigos, Zulkipli Ibrahim, and Yanti Sham.
The contestants were judged based on their physical appearance, catwalk, self-confidence and IQ.
The finalists will go through various activities set up by the organisers including fashion showcases and photoshoots prior to the grand finale.
The queen of bikers will receive a cash prize of RM800, a pair of jacket, and a crown. Meanwhile, first and second runner-ups will receive a cash prize of RM600 and RM400, respectively. All top three winners will each receive a trophy, a sash, and a bouquet of flowers.
The other seven finalists will receive a cash prize of RM150 each. All finalists will also receive certificates and other sponsored prizes.
The beauty pageant is being held in conjunction with the upcoming 5th Samarahan Bike Fest (SBF) 2016 organised by Kelab Sukan Rekreasi Motosikal Berkuasa Tinggi Kota Samarahan (Tegar Bikers Motor Club).
The fifth edition of the bike fest will be held at Aiman Mall, Kota Samarahan from September 23 to 25.
