For the first time in the post-Saddam Iraq, the Miss Iraq & Mister Iraq pageant was organized by the Youth Alliance of Iraq. The grand finale was held at the Iraqi Hunting Club in Baghdad.
This is the third beauty pageant to be organized in Iraq besides the traditional Miss Baghdad by Sana Amouri (held since 2008) and Miss Kurdistan (Northern Iraq). The winners of Mister & Miss Iraq 2014 will not participate at any international beauty pageant but support different social projects. However, the organizers have expressed their interest in joining Miss World & Mr. World next year.
