List of beauty pageants


This is a list of beauty pageants from around the world. A beauty pageant or beauty contest is a competition that has traditionally focused on judging and ranking the physical attributes of the contestants, although some contests have evolved to also incorporate personality, intelligence, talent, and answers to judges' questions as judged criteria.[1][2][3] The pageant industry commonly uses three specific courtesy titlesMiss, Ms and Mrs – to clearly identify the difference between pageant divisions. Similar events for men or boys are usually called by other names and are more likely to be bodybuilding contests.
