The deal was cracked by TWI, a subsidiary of IMG Media, which is a division of IMG, one of the world's premier Sports, Entertainment, and Media Company.
The Miss World mobile content will be available on 200 plus handsets from all leading manufacturers, and the content will include final and continental show highlights, contestant images and video profiles, audio and video ring tones, wallpapers, screensavers, themes, and a calendar application.
The content will be created using footage and photographs from the last three Miss World finals, and also exclusive material from the contestants. Miss World 2006 will be held during a four-week period in September, wherein more than 100 of the world's most beautiful young women will compete for the Miss World 2006 title. The Final will be held in Warsaw, on September 30, 2006.
Mauj is also developing an exciting virtual reality application that will bring users closer to the experience of preparing for the Miss World contest.
Miss World Final, the world's largest live annual TV event, had successfully introduced phone and text voting in 2004. Mauj will help power the Miss World 2006 global vote, as the preferred SMS voting partner in a number of territories.
Julia Morley, chairman, Miss World Organisation, said, "During the past 56 years, we have worked to ensure that Miss World remains at the cutting edge of new developments. In recent years, we have gone interactive, and our phone and text vote has been a massive success. We are delighted to be extending our stake for Miss World 2006, by sealing this global content deal with Mauj Telecom."
Dippak Khurana, regional head (India and Far East), Mauj Telecom, said, "The Miss World event is one of the most eagerly awaited and widely watched events in the world. Mobile content makes the experience more personal, and brings the event up close for millions of fans around the world. Mauj is extremely honoured to work with the Miss World Organisation, and TWI / IMG to bring this event to mobile consumers worldwide."
