The Pedruco Sisters is a family of four sisters who have competed at the Miss Chinese International pageant and Miss World pageant representing Macau.[1] They are the only family of three or more sisters to compete at Miss World and Miss Chinese International. As of 2013, this record has not been broken.

History[edit]

The four sisters include (from oldest to youngest): Guilhermina Madeira da Silva Pedruco (born 1969), Geraldina Madeira da Silva Pedruco (born 1971), Isabela Madeira da Silva Pedruco (born 1973), and Guiomar Madeira da Silva Pedruco (born 1974). They were all born in Macau and they are Macanese (or Portuguese descent) people.

The Miss Macau pageant was held in 1972 and from 1985 to 1998 every year in the Forum De Macau auditorium. The winner receives $100,000 and the chance to compete at Miss World and Miss Chinese International. There is no preliminary competition. The pageant has been held on and off as sponsors withdraw from the pageant. The original sponsors for the pageant were Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau. The company only sponsored the pageant for one year (1972). In 1985, Teledifusão de Macau took over the pageant and held the pageant from 1985 to 1998. Due to lack of support and lack of audience, the pageant was eventually discontinued in 1998. From 1998 to now, no Macau representative has competed at Miss World or Miss Chinese International.

In 2008 Miss Macau pageant was restored and hosted by S.I. Promotion Limited & G&L Group at The Venetian Macau. The winner was Florence Loi. The pageant returned in 2009 by S.I. Promotion Limited % G&L Group at the same location and winner is Laura Li.
