Miss International is a Tokyo-based international beauty pageant organized by The International Culture Association. The pageant was first held in 1960. Along with Miss World, Miss Universe, and Miss Earth, Miss International Beauty Pageant is one of the Big Four International Beauty Pageants- the most coveted beauty titles when it comes to international pageant competitions.
The current Miss International is Kevin Lilliana of Indonesia who was crowned 2017 Miss International in Tokyo, Japan.
The pageant was created in Long Beach, California, USA in 1960 after the departure of the Miss Universe pageant to Miami Beach. Hosted in Long Beach until 1967, the pageant moved to Japan from 1968–1970, being hosted each year in the same city as the Expo '70. For 1971, it was held in Long Beach again, but since that time it has been held annually in Japan until 2003. Since 2004, it is held in China or Japan.
The pageant is also called "Miss International Beauty”. Contestants are expected to serve as "Ambassadors of Peace and Beauty", demonstrating tenderness, benevolence, friendship, beauty, intelligence, ability to take action, and, most importantly, a great international sensibility. The ultimate goal of the Miss International beauty pageant is to promote world peace, goodwill, and understanding.
