Miss Malta is a national Beauty pageant in Malta.


The Miss Malta contest was established in 1963 by the late George & Deggie Gatt Mangion as GM Productions. Over the years, the contest gave an opportunity to some 980 participants to show off their inner and outer beauty locally and abroad through representing Malta at International Beauty Contests around the World. Mrs Joanne Parascandalo has now the exclusive rights of the national pageant Miss Malta. In 2016 Edition the organization of such a prestigious contest is under the management of Glamorous Entertainment, directed by Mr Vince Taliana who took over the complete organization of the event with the aim to re-brand it and give it a new and complete makeover. Glamorous Entertainment has been in the modelling industry since 2002, organizing various beauty pageants and events. Glamorous Entertainment has in the past participated in many international beauty pageants like Mrs Universe, Mrs Europe, Mrs Globe, Mrs Commonwealth, Mr Universe Model and Miss Earth.

Miss Malta is the eldest pageant in Malta celebrating its 53 rd year this year. Miss Malta is the only pageant which gives emphasis to the various localities around Malta and our sister island Gozo.
