A Word On Fees…

At Emissary Pageants International Congress, we believe in full transparency. To that end, fees may not be more than listed below. State Directors and the National Office may choose to charge less but not more than the following. There may be additional costs associated with competeing but we make every effort to be fair and transparent in advance. FOR CURRENT FEES CHECK WITH YOUR DIRECTOR!
