Miss Seychelles is the national beauty pageant of the Seychelles responsible for selecting an ambassador of the country.

History[edit]

After a four-year absence from the Seychelles' events calendar, the Miss Seychelles Beauty Pageant was reintroduced in 2012. This was the last pageant financed by the government[1] in 2017. Miss Seychelles will return in 2020 under the new moniker "Miss Seychelles the National Pageant," and it will be conducted by the newly founded organization, Beauty Empowerment Seychelles (BES), with Stephanie Duval as chairperson and Margaret Raguin and Kevin Perine[2][3] assisting her.

Mission[edit]

The pageant's mission is to continue to:

"Propose a new era of involvement for the winner of the competition, opening the door of opportunity in the form of travelling abroad to represent Seychelles, not only in the Miss World pageant, but also at trade fairs and other international events as an ambassadress and spokesperson for our islands - their culture, spectacular natural beauty and national identity."

National franchise[edit]

The National Contest is conducted in agreement with Miss World Limited, the owners and organizers of the Miss World Contest, to elect "Miss World" and it is also an official preliminary contest to select a representative to participate in the Miss World Contest.
