Story: Milton Keynes company, The Video News Factory, has helped Miss England put together an innovative way to broadcast the Miss England Semi-Finals and Grand Finals using Zoom linked to live streaming with public voting and overcome the lockdown.
The Miss England 2020 Semis will take place on the 31st of July 2020 at 7.30 pm and be broadcast LIVE. The event will be hosted by a small team with safe distancing, including judges, hosts and entertainers, video clips of contestants in action, and live interviews with the panel of judges.
A pilot test for this innovative approach completed successfully just 2 weeks ago and the service is now live and available for people to vote on this link with 27 contestants already on board and more to join shortly.
John Allard, Managing Director of The Video News Factory commented: “We are delighted to be able to offer an innovative way to help them continue their sterling work with a great competition that adds tremendous value to both the contestants and society at large by celebrating ‘Beauty with a purpose’.
Angie Beasley, Managing Director of Miss England commented: “This is our second year of working with The Video News Factory, who have helped us innovate and develop exciting new formats to showcase our competition. Last year they helped enable our 2019 Grand Final reach well over 14,000 viewers across the world and we look forward to even greater success in 2020”.
