Venezuela at major beauty pageants

This is a list of Venezuela's official representatives and their placements at the Big Four international beauty pageants, considered the most important in the world. The country has won twenty-three victories in all the pageants, being considered as the most powerful country in beauty pageants:[1]

With 23 victorious titles, Venezuela has reputedly won more than any other country in pageantry. Venezuela is also the first and only country to win all the four pageants multiple times. Venezuela has twice won two Big Four crowns in one year, winning Miss Universe 1981 and Miss World 1981 and then Miss Universe 2013 and Miss Earth 2013. In the past, the main organiser for Venezuelan pageants was the former famed beauty queen maker, Osmel Sousa. The current National Director is Gabriela Isler.

The criteria for the Big Four inclusion is based on specific standards such as the pageants global prominence and prestige approved by worldwide media, the quality and quantity of crowned delegates recognized by international franchisees and pageant aficionados, the winner's post pageant activities; the pageants longevity, consistency, and history; the sincerity of the pageant's specific cause, platform, and advocacy; the overall pre-pageant activities, production quality and global telecast; the enormity of internet traffic; and the extent of popularity amongst pageant fans across the globe.[2]
