Having completed 17 glorious years, Mega Mister North East is the biggest beauty pageant of North-East India, conceptualized by leading fashion entrepreneur Abhijit Singha, and produced by Mega Entertainment.

The contestants travelled to Guwahati for almost a week of activities which included grooming and training sessions conducted by Mega Entertainment, followed by rehearsals, leading up to the Grand Finale of the pageant.

The pageant has been supported by Title Sponsor Sunsilk Thick and Long, Hospitality Partner Radisson Blu, Telecom Partner Vodafone SuperNet 4G, Photo Partner Sony Alpha and Cosmetic Partner Eyetex Dazller.

Speaking at the grand finale of the event, Abhijit Singha, Founder of Mega Entertainment said, "Starting this year, Mega Entertainment decided to eliminate the concept of runners-up from our pageant.

So, all the top-3 contestants are the winners of Garnier Men Mega Mister North East.

They have struggled their way to the top, managing to beat the other 47 contestants, hence they are all winners".

Langpoklakpam Melody from Imphal, who is pursuing bachelor's degree in education, was crowned by last year's winner Jyotismita Baruah.

After winning the pageant, Melody said, "Participating in Sunsilk Mega Miss North East and winning the pageant crown means a lot to me.

I believe the pageant girl is all about honour - the honour of representing my community, my State, the honour of living every little girl's dream, the honour to inspire many girls out there, of being a role model for the younger generation.

I want to be a positive influence on everyone I cross paths with, and I strongly believe that Sunsilk Mega Miss North East will help me fulfil what I am passionate about." The three winners will be offered professional representation by Mega Entertainment, a specialized grooming session, which would guide them further on how to carry themselves forward in the professional sphere.

Besides, the winners also get the opportunity to walk the ramp in various regional and National shows.

The organizers of the event, Mega Entertainment, had short-listed 50 women, who vied for the coveted title of Sunsilk Mega Miss North East 2019.The gowns of the Top 5 round were designed by reputed fashion designer from Shillong Arif Mukhim.

The judges who sealed the fate of this year's winner included: Fashion Designer Arif Mukhim; Mega Miss North East 2016 Meriya Subba, Fashion & Lifestyle Promoter Monika Devi, Hotelier and entrepreneur Bobby Singh and Mohit Narru, Business Head Vodafone.

The pageant organizers were also judged for a series of sub-awards.
