Miss Earth 2011, the 11th edition of the Miss Earth pageant, was held on 3 December 2011 at the UP Theater in Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines.[1]

The pageant was originally scheduled to be held at the Impact, Muang Thong Thani in Bangkok, Thailand,[2][3] however the pageant organizers decided to move the pageant back to the Philippines due to the 2011 Thailand floods.[1][4][5]

Miss Earth 2010, Nicole Faria of India, crowned her successor Olga Álava of Ecuador as Miss Earth 2011 at the end of the event.[6][7]

The three "elemental titles", which have equal ranking, were awarded to Miss Brazil Drielly Bennettone as Miss Earth-Air 2011, Miss Philippines Athena Imperial as Miss Earth-Water 2011 title, and Caroline Medina of Venezuela as Miss Earth-Fire 2011.[8][9][10]

The theme of Miss Earth 2011 was "The Earth is Crying. Let the Earth Smile Again!"[11]
