Miss South Africa is an annual beauty pageant in South Africa that began in 1956. The winner of the pageant represents her country at the Miss World and Miss Universe pageants.

History[edit]

Miss South Africa (or a runner-up in some instances) has always competed at Miss World, but the first Miss South Africa to compete at Miss Universe was Kerishnie Naicker in 1998.

Prior to 1998, South Africa's representatives at Miss Universe qualified via other national pageants, but they were not the winners of the Miss South Africa pageant. Miss South Africa runners-up do not compete at any international pageants.

Titleholders[edit]

In addition, Miss South Africa will be selecting the official candidates to represent South Africa at International pageants. South Africa competed at the Miss Universe and Miss World for the official winner, and sometimes the 1st runner-up goes to the Miss World. On occasion, when the winner does not qualify (due to age) for either contest, a runner-up is sent.
