Actualy, there is no way to select the encoding of a QGis project. It is set by default to "encoding="System". If you have to change the encoding, you must change it in the *.qgs by hand. It would be nice, if you can select the encoding of the qgis-project when you save it.

Hello, bug triage...

on QGIS 2.13, qgs files are stored as UTF-8 XML files. There is no option to set the encoding system of the QGIS project file anymore. Every .qgs files are encoded in UTF-8 (which is good), even under MS Windows !

So I am closing this feature request...
