Bring back pure authenticity,
pure goodness, and pure beauty.


The New Tang Dynasty (NTD) Global Chinese Beauty Pageant is one in a series of international cultural and arts events hosted by NTD, which aims to promote the traditional aesthetic character of Chinese women and bring back pure authenticity, pure goodness, and pure beauty.

The competition is open to young Chinese women (ages 18 – 30) worldwide. This path-breaking event serves as a fine platform to promote Chinese culture and showcase the elegance and graceful beauty of Chinese women who embrace traditional values. The unique design of the phoenix crown symbolizes the five essential inner virtues — Morality, Righteousness, Propriety, Benevolence, and Faithfulness.
