Señorita Panamá or Miss Panamá is the common name or sash used to identify a Panamanian representative in an international pageant. Concurso de Nacional de la Belleza Miss Panamá selects four winners to represent Panama to Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss Earth, and Miss International.[1] The first national pageant was Miss Panamá held from 1982 to 1987. In 1982, Señorita Panamá was created as an alternative to send its winners to the Miss World contest in London. These pageants, along with smaller pageants such as Miss International Panamá and Miss World Panamá celebrated to select delegates for international representations.

History[edit]

After 28 years, the Señorita Panamá pageant, organized by Medcom Corporation, was discontinued. A new organization took over in 2011 with the official name of the contest being "Miss Panama" (not to be confused with Señorita Panamá or Bellezas Panamá).

In 2012, Miss Panamá National Beauty Contest (Concurso de Nacional de la Belleza Miss Panama) under the direction of the Miss Panamá Organization (ORGANIZACIÓN MISS PANAMA s.a.) obtained 2 other national franchises to select representatives to Miss Earth and Miss International. The 2012 edition of Miss Panamá started to crown four winners in the following order: Miss Panamá Universe, Miss Panama World, Miss Panama Earth, and Miss Panama International to represent the country to the four major international beauty contests. The last two Miss Panama Earth and Miss Panama International are franchises run by Tanya Hyman. Miss Panama Universe and Miss Panama World are of Miss Panama Organization run by its president Marisela Moreno. The pageant is broadcast by the official partner of the pageant, "Telemetro".[1]

International participation[edit]

Panama has been represented in various international pageants. This includes the big four international pageants namely Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss Earth, and Miss International.[2]

The country has won two major international titles: Miss International 1998 and Miss Universe 2002. Lía Victoria Borrero González won the Miss International 1998[3] while Justine Pasek, who represented Panama in Miss Universe 2002, won by default when she replaced the dethroned winner Oxana Fedorova of Russia.[4]

The country has 2 semifinalists and 2 finalist in Miss World with Lorelay de la Ossa in Miss World 1979, Marissa Burgos Canalias in Miss World 1983, María Lorena Orillac Giraldo in Miss World 1986 and Nadege Herrera in Miss World 2009. The country's highest placement in Miss Earth was achieved by Stefanie de Roux who finished as top eight finalist in the Miss Earth 2006.[5]

In 2011, the Miss Universe Panamá and Miss World Panamá are selected by Miss Panamá[6] while Miss Earth Panamá and Miss Internacional Panamá were selected in the Bellezas Panamá pageant organized by Tania Hyman's Models and Talents.[7] However beginning 2012, the four titles (Miss Panama Universe, Miss Panama World, Miss Panama Earth, and Miss Panama International) are selected by one organization called, ORGANIZACIÓN MISS PANAMA.[1] This year Miss Panama have 2 presidents Marisela Moreno and Tania Hyman so this year we have the national beauty contest.

Winners of the contest[edit]

Since 1952 year the Miss Panama was founded until 1987 there were 25 Misses in 25 years that took place centamen despite three periods in which the contest was not performed. And from 1990 to 2005 and from 2005 to present the correction happened in 2006 when the contest was not performed, respectively. Thereafter, the winners of the Miss Panama participate in the Miss Universe next year, if not for the Miss World where the winner that year participated.

In every year the winners were chosen by a jury during the coronation ceremony except in 2007, Sorangel Matos. Matos was appointed directly by Organization to represent Panama in Miss Universe because that year's Miss Panama is not made, which happened after an international competition.

As these shares the rules have changed over the years, and used a system of hierarchy based on the importance of international competitions. Thus, the winner of the Miss Panama participated in the Miss Universe, which ranks second in the Miss World.

Since 2011, the candidate occupying the third place is Virreina Panama, while others make up the top ranked semifinalists.

Stefanie de Roux, Señorita Panamá 2002
Carolina Dementiev, Señorita Panamá 2008

In 1982, a new pageant was born, created by Channel 4 RPC. It was named Señorita Panamá and its winners were sent to Miss World until 1989. In 1990, the pageant acquired the franchise for Miss Universe and the contest crowned three winners: one for Miss Universe, another for Miss World and a third one that attended Miss Hispanidad from 1990 to 1995, Nuestra Belleza Internacional from 1996 to 1997 and Miss Asia Pacific from 1998 to 2000. The third title was eliminated in 2001.

In 2003, the contest was moved to November, therefore there was no time to elect a delegate for Miss World. Stefanie de Roux and Yanela de Sedas were offered the chance, but both declined due to their studies. That year, the Panama franchise was given to Bolivian-based Promociones Gloria, which conducted a small casting to select a delegate for Miss World. The winner was Ivy Ruth Ortega Coronas. Melissa Piedrahita represented Panama in Miss World 2004.

In 2008, the contest changed its name to Realmente Bella and was shown in a reality show format and is televise for Telemetro Channel. 10 girls lived together in a hotel and each week one of them was dismissed. The winner competed at the Miss Universe 2008 contest in Vietnam.

In 2009, the reality show took place again. For the first time in the Miss Panama contest, open casting calls were held, which resulted in complete failure as only about 17 girls in four cities showed up. 10 finalists were chosen to compete. Finally in 2010 the pageant take the old format with a final night of coronation as in past years.

Realmente Bella Señorita Panamá[edit]

In 2008, a new production team took over the contest, calling it "Realmente Bella" and transforming the beauty pageant into a reality show. This show had weekly galas where contestants took part in special challenges to raise the level of competition. In 2009, the contest became a public window where the participants were humiliated on national TV, tarnishing the image of the beauty contest. The name of the pageant was so harmed by this reality show that it was cancelled immediately after the 2009 final.

Two editions were held Realmente Bella Señorita Panamá 2008 and Realmente Bella Señorita Panamá 2009.
