Miss India Teen
Miss India Teen is produced by the JFMC based in New Delhi, India. The JFMC first began its first annual “National Awards Festival” in New Delhi, India, in 1992. An integral component of these festivals was the immensely popular “Awards & Fashion Show,” which JFMC was the first to provide to the Society at large Globally.
The “National Awards & Fashion Show” had become so popular that it was proposed to start the first ever MISS INDIA Pageant from this year i.e. 2013. The various groups/organizations in the major cities of India use to conduct Indian Pageants in different catgories and we are roping them under our flagship to send the winner to New Delhi to compete for Miss India in different categories like Miss India Teen etc. The JAI International Entertainment in association of Journalist Association of India under the flagship of Journalists Federation of India is happy to take responsibility of organizing Indian pageant in whole India was taken by JFMC itself, which organized the first ever “National Awards” New Delhi, India in 1992.
The various groups/organizations in major Indian cities were contacted to start Indian Pageants in different states and send their winners to New Delhi to compete for Miss India. The responsibility of organizing an Indian pageant in All India was taken by JFMC and the first ever Miss India Teen, New Delhi will be initiated to start this year i.e 2013.
For many years, we were requested by many young aspirants and their parents, as well as various state directors / organisers who were already conducting teen pageants in their respective states, to start Miss India Teen New Delhi so that they can showcase their talent and gain confidence. Finally, in 2012, we decided to host the first ever Miss India Teen New Delhi, in the coming year i.e. 2013. Needless to say, the pageant will be a milestone and will be an instant success and will become a most sought after event for the teen girls of Indian origin living in India. Following the success of our previous events and affiliated teen pageants in other states, there was a strong demand to provide a national platform for the Indian teens living in India and as a result, Miss Teen India was formed in 2012.
Starting from the Mandi House, New Delhi with an audience of near about four hundred people, we have come a long way! Our previous sponsors are still with us like Oriental bank of India, Steel Authority of India, Sahitya Kala Parishad, Govt of Haryana etc. And till today they has remained our staunch supporter from day one and helped us tremendously in our growth internationally.
