About Miss Universe Guyana Pageants
Guyana debuted in 1956 as the British Guiana until 1966 under the Miss British Guiana pageant. The very first Miss Universe British Guiana in that epoch, was Rosalind Iva Joan Fung from Georgetown. The British Guiana beauty pageant existed from 1947 when Phyllis Woolford won the first Miss British Guiana pageant.
In 1999, the Guyana sash used on the Miss Universe stage for the first time. In 2016 the pageant was renamed from Miss Guyana (from previous directorship) to Miss Universe Guyana under Moonlight Productions. In 2023, the Miss Universe Guyana license was granted to Teri Brown Walker, an American director.
Brown-Walker, a renowned, respected figure in entertainment and philanthropic circles, is stepping in with a vision to redefine the Miss Universe Guyana organization purpose and impact. “I believe in being fair in pageantry and once these girls have the potential to uplift and inspire they can become advocates for positive change”. “Our focus will be on empowering contestants to embrace their individuality, promote social causes close to their hearts, and represent the diversity and vibrancy of Guyana on a global stage.”
