Vietnamese men both at home and abroad, aged 18 to 27 who are at least 1.75 metres tall, are encouraged to register for the contest which is scheduled to take place in April, according to Sen Vàng Company, the owner of the event.

The candidates should also never have been through a gender transition surgery, not be married, have no criminal record and should have at least graduated from high school by the time the final round officially begins.

Accordingly, each episode in the broadcast programme presents a challenge for groups and individuals, corresponding to a typical criterion of the contest such as physical challenge, modelling skill and talent.

After each challenge, the contest’s advisory board and host person will choose a winning group or individual who will be offered privileges in the next challenge.

The jury and advisory board members will include reputable, familiar and successful faces in the fields they are pursuing, according to the organiser.

The qualification round is scheduled to be held in HCM City in April. The contestants are due to compete in categories such as traditional costumes, sports, question-and-answer sessions and evening wear.

They will also take part in additional competitions highlighting their talent and charity work during the final round which is set to get underway in June.

The Top Five finalists will then partake in the Q&A part and compete for the crown. The winner will receive a cash prize of VNĐ200 million (roughly US$8,200), while first and second runners-up will be awarded VNĐ100 million and VNĐ50 million, respectively.

The organiser will also present awards to winners of the sub-contests, including Mr Sport, Mr Fashion Model, Mr Talent, Beauty With A Purpose, Mr Áo dài, Mr Veston, Mr Fitness and Mr Media Award.
