Miss Suomi (Finnish: Miss Suomi) is a national beauty pageant in Finland.

History[edit]

Miss Suomi held for the first time in 1933. Between 1952 and 1955 the winner of Suomen Neito went to Miss Universe where Armi Kuusela was also crowned as the first Miss Universe in Long Beach by actress Piper Laurie in 1952.

In 1956 due to lack of sponsorship, the national pageant of Suomen Neito did not hold and made Finland withdraws at the competition. In that year, Miss Suomi planned to send its winner and already become national franchise of Miss Universe in Finland but it revealed in 1960 that Finland was returned to Miss Universe by the second princess of Miss Suomi 1960, Maija-Leena Manninen.

In 1961 the format was made by Miss Suomi Organization to send its winner to only, Miss Universe competition and reformatted in 1962 to 1963 the first princess of Miss Suomi went to Miss Universe.

In 2006 Maailma Suomi beauty pageant held a separate pageant to select its winner to Miss World until 2009 and back to Miss Suomi 1st Princess. In some years, an appointed candidate represented her country to Miss World or Miss International.

Started in 1964 the Miss Suomi winner represents her country at the Miss Universe. On occasion, when the winner does not qualify (due to age) for either contest, a runner-up is sent.

Franchise holders[edit]

The Miss Suomi has responsibility produced the three titleholders to the grand slam beauty contests. The winner automatically becomes Miss Universe Finland while runners-up crown as Miss World Finland and Miss International Finland. Before 2007 Miss Suomi Organization also sent a delegate to Miss Europe.
