Young Cuban women, or those with at least one Cuban parent, will have the chance to be selected through a virtual casting to represent the Caribbean nation in the Miss Universe beauty pageant.

The event organizers emphasized that they are looking for “inspiring women who are confident and have a deep love for their country.” Applicants must fill out an online form and upload three photos via the event’s website.

The announcement specifies that candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 28 and either Cuban by birth or naturalized. The registration deadline is May 26.

“The Miss Universe Cuba Organization invites you to register and become the next ambassador of Cuban beauty on the Miss Universe stage,” the call for entries stated. “As part of this prestigious competition, you will have the opportunity to represent Cuba to the world and showcase your grace, elegance, and talent,” the statement added.

Venezuelan designer Prince Julio César will lead the Miss Universe Cuba pageant, which will be held in Miami, marking the historic return of the Caribbean nation to the beauty contest after a 57-year absence. According to the fashion advisor, they aim to have 20 contestants who will undergo three months of prior preparation.

He pointed out that the contestants must be intelligent and “carry a message,” noting that size or body shape does not matter.

From its first edition in 1952 until 1960, Cuba was an active participant in the Miss Universe contest. However, the ban by the regime led to representatives from 1961 to 1967 competing under the name Miss Cuba Free, exiled in Miami.

Elina Salavarría De Mora in 1967 was the last woman to represent Cuba.

The 73rd edition of the Miss Universe pageant, which highlights beauty, grace, and cultural diversity on an international level, will take place in Mexico in 2024, according to Hola! news portal. It is expected that 120 countries will participate, making the event “a truly global spectacle that will captivate viewers worldwide,” the website noted.
