In the years 1998, 2004 and 2005, the contest was not held. Between 1994 and 2007, the contest was an arbitrary event confined to the Kosovo and recognised only by its organisers. From 2008 after Kosovan independence, Miss Kosovo has been permitted to take part at the Miss Earth pagaent. Pre-2008 winners of the contest were able to represent Miss Albania owing to agreements with its sister organisation across the border.
Two winners had a successful pageant in Miss Albania: Venera Mustafa (1999 winner of both titles); and Agnesa Vuthaj (winning Miss Kosovo 2003 and Miss Albania 2004) who also participated internationally as Miss Albania.
The Miss Kosovo pageant is organized by former titleholder Agnesa Vuthaj under her Agnesa Vuthaj Association. After Kosovo's declaration of independence, Miss Kosovo 2007 Yllka Berisha participated in the Miss Earth 2008 pageant but was unplaced.
In 2013 the former Miss Universe Kosovo team pulled out of Miss Universe and decided to send their winning girl to Miss World 2013. Due to pilitical issues between Russia and Kosovo in 2013, Miss Universe Kosovo Organization changed format to send Miss Kosovo at the Miss World pageant while Kosovo did not compete at the Miss Universe pageant.
Miss Earth Kosovo will be selecting by Miss Kosova pageant. Since 2010, the candidate will be selecting in castings management to compete at the Miss Earth. In 2013 Miss Earth Kosovo together has been chosen with the winner of Miss Universe Kosovo at the Miss Universe Kosovo pageant.
Miss Supranational Kosovo will be selecting by Miss Supranational Kosovo Organization. This pageant winner usually will be picking by Miss Globe Kosovo pageant to compete at the Miss Supranational pageant.
The Miss Kosovo pageant is not related to Miss Universe Kosovo or formally Miss Universe Kosova. After Kosovo gained independence from Serbia in 2008, Fadil Berisha (renowned Albanian-American photographer) started the Miss Universe Kosova pageant to select the country's delegate to Miss Universe. On the other hand, the Miss Kosovo pageant selects its representative to Miss Earth.
