India to host 71st Miss World 2023 pageant after 27 years

New Delhi: India is all set to host the much awaited 71st Miss World 2023 pageant after a gap of 27 years. The country last hosted the event in 1996.

The announcement has come as a surprise as it comes months after the confirmation of United Arab Emirates (UAE) as this year's venue. While the exact date is yet to be announced, the beauty pageant is expected to take place in November or December this year.

On the occasion, Chairperson and CEO, of Miss World Organisation, Julia Morley expressed, "I am delighted to announce India as the new home of the 71st Miss World Final! I have had a great affection for India from the first moment I visited this incredible country more than 30 years ago! We cannot wait to share your unique and diverse culture, world-class attractions and breathtaking locations with the rest of the world”.

“Miss World Limited and PME Entertainment are joining forces - to produce an extraordinary Miss World Festival. 71st Miss World 2023 will showcase the Achievements of 130 National champions in their one-month journey across "Incredible India" as we present the 71st and most spectacular Miss World final ever. I'd also like to thank Dr Syed Zafar Islam for his support in making this possible", she said.

71st Miss World 2023 in India will promote charitable causes through philanthropic activities, inspiring contestants to make a positive impact in their communities and contribute to society.

The first-ever Miss World from India Reita Faria won the contest in 1966. Aishwarya Rai (1994), Diana Hayden (1997), Yukta Mookhey (1999), Priyanka Chopra (2000) and most recently Manushi Chillar (2017) are the other Indian winners of the contest. Miss India World 2022 Sini Shetty will be representing India in Miss World 2023 contest.

The 71st Miss World 2023 pageant promises to be a remarkable platform that honours the very best in diversity, feminism, and beauty. Participants from more than 130 nations will congregate in India to display their special skills, wisdom, and compassion.

They will take part in a number of demanding competitions, such as talent shows, sporting events, and philanthropic endeavours, all of which are intended to emphasise the traits that make them outstanding ambassadors of change.

Before the big finale, which is expected for November or December 2023, there will be many rounds to shortlist participants over the course of one month.

Jamil Saidi, Chairman, PME said, "The 71st Miss World Festival is in the most deserving country, to showcase this magnificent event. It enables representatives of 140 countries to come and experience Incredible India!"

Salman Ahmed, Founder and CEO, PME, further endorsed, "We're delighted to partner with the Miss World Organization to host the 71st Miss World in India, an incredible country, full of vibrancy, colours, and life - the elements that represent beauty in its purest form.

"India prepares to welcome the world with open arms with the 71st Miss World 2023 and showcase the country's grace, beauty, and progressive spirit. Join us in celebrating the power of women to make a difference, as we embark on this extraordinary journey together," Miss World 2022, Karolina Bielawska said.

The Miss World pageant holds a long-standing reputation for celebrating the beauty and intellect of women, going beyond physical appearances. It is a platform that empowers women to raise their voices, advocate for causes close to their hearts, and foster positive change on a global scale.

By hosting the 71st Miss World 2023, India aims to amplify these values and serve as a catalyst for meaningful conversations and actions.
