Miss Venezuela 2015 will be held on October 8, 2015 in Caracas. The winner will represent her country at Miss Universe 2016. Mariana Jimenez will crown her successor at the end of the event. And at the same event, Edymar Martínez and Maira Rodríguez will crown their successors as Miss Venezuela International and as Miss Venezuela Earth respectively.
Under the direction of Osmel Sousa, Venezuela has accumulated more international pageant titles than any other country, including seven Miss Universe winners, six Miss World winners, six Miss International winners and two Miss Earth.
Thousands of entrants apply for the pageant each year. Some young women would try for up to five or six years consecutively trying to get one of the 26 to 32 titles that will enable them to compete in the final pageant. Venezuela’s 23 states, capital, and two regions of Zulia State are always represented.
