The Miss England Contest is the most respected ‘Title’ in England.
It is the ONLY competition in the Country to send its winner to represent England in the Miss World Contest.

The organisers are noted for emphasising the importance of charity work, now a major part of the competition, at Regional Heat level & National Finals. During the last few years, the Miss England competition alone has raised in excess of £1m for various childrens charities using the Miss World ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ slogan founded by Julia Morley, now a charity that aims to help disadvantaged children across the World. Miss England is a regular supporter of Variety Children’s Charity, having raised thousands of pounds at Miss England heats with ‘Miss England’ herself appearing at high profile events, organised by the charity.
Miss World is one of the world’s biggest TV shows, filmed by satellite to over 120 countries and has been in existence since 1952. In England we can usually watch on London Live Channel E!, or on the Miss World You Tube channel.
Founded by the late Eric Morley, the Miss World Contest is currently owned and organised by his wife, Julia. The event hosts a top prize of $100,000 and every year attracts thousands of entrants in over 120 countries. Prolific winners of Miss World include Aishwarya Rai, Zhang Zilin and Priyanka Chopra who have all since then made themselves wholly successful in the filming and modelling industry. Other former Miss World contestants have since made success include Halle Berry and Michelle Yeoh.
