The Miss Tahiti pageant is a long-standing beauty contest competition which awards prizes to young women contestants from Tahiti to Miss France as territory. It allows to compete at some International pageants to represent the island as a territory.

History[edit]

Miss Tahiti pageant has been known since 1960 before joining Miss France contest in 1986. Two other pageants held each year on Tahiti are Miss Dragon (ambassadress of the Chinese community's beauty and culture), as well as Miss Heiva (best representative of the Polynesian culture). The Miss Dragon will represent the French Territory at the annual Miss Chinese International beauty contest.

Internationally, the winners of Miss Tahiti traditionally competed in Miss World until 2002. The first Miss Tahiti, Teura Bauwens, was sent to Miss World 1960. In 2009, a separate Miss French Polynesia contest was established for Miss World.

Winners of Miss Tahiti were also sent to the Miss International pageant during the 1960s and 70s and to Miss Universe between 1978-1985. Nowadays, the runner-ups of Miss Tahiti now participate in Miss Earth and Miss International pageants.
