Miss Denmark (Danish: Miss Danmark or Frøken Danmark) is a national Beauty pageant in Denmark.

Organization[edit]

The Miss Danmark pageant was established in 1926 when the country hosted its first national beauty contest whose winner was Edith Jørgensen. Between 1951 and 2003, Miss Denmark/Frøken Danmark selected one winner to represent Denmark at several major international beauty competitions. Among the famous Miss Danmarks include Aino Korva, Miss Danmark 1963.

From 1986 until 2013, Memborg models operated the contest. In 2015, the rights to hold the Miss Denmark national beauty pageant have been purchased by Lisa Lents of Miss & Mister Denmark Org. The winner of Miss Denmark from now on will compete only at Miss World.[1]

In 2013, the organization obtained the Miss Earth franchise license where they sent representatives in 2013 & 2014. After a few years break, they were back at working with Miss Earth in 2017 & 2018.

In 2018, the organization obtained the Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Grand International franchise licenses.
