List of Miss Earth titleholders
Miss Earth is an annual beauty pageant that is organized by Manila-based Carousel Productions, through the Miss Earth Foundation. The non-stock, non-profit organization aims to increase the level of awareness on current environmental issues and what actions can be done through power of broadcasting and other media campaigns locally, nationally and globally. It is the only major global beauty pageant that promotes care and preservation for the planets environment and ecology.
The annual event, which started in 2001, has attracted delegates from at least 80 countries and territories since 2005. Competing delegates should be at least 18 years of age, and not exceed 26. Like the Miss Universe, delegates compete in three rounds of competition: swimsuit, evening gown and question and answer. The last round focuses on topics of environmental concerns. The proclaimed winner is awarded the title of Miss Earth, and becomes the spokesperson and ambassador of the foundation, as well as the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and other organizations, in promoting green causes worldwide.
To date, the Miss Earth beauty pageant has been held ten times, taking place during the last quarter of the year. There was one case of dethronement, when 2002 Miss Earth Džejla Glavović was replaced by first runner-up Winfred Adah Omwakwe. As part of the pageant's rules, in the case that the titleholder can no longer fulfill her duties and obligations as Miss Earth, the first runner-up, awarded the title of Miss Air, shall take over the title.
