Miss Earth 2013, the 13th edition of the Miss Earth pageant, was held on 7 December 2013 at the Versailles Palace in Alabang, Muntinlupa, Philippines. Miss Earth 2012 Tereza Fajksová from Czech Republic crowned her successor Alyz Henrich from Venezuela at the end of the event. 89 contestants competed for this year's pageant, the highest number in Miss Earth history. The pageant was broadcast live internationally on Star World last 7 December 2013, 10:00 a.m. on ABS-CBN, or coverage on Studio 23, TFC-The Filipino Channel, and also on channels of participating counties worldwide. Miss Earth 2008, Karla Henry, was present in the pageant to express the gratitude that the different countries had done to help the Philippines after the devastation that Typhoon Haiyan had caused.


This edition of Miss Earth made some historical feat: When Alyz Henrich won, Alyz made a history as she put Venezuela in the map of pageantry as the second country to win all the Big Four international beauty pageants at least twice (after Brazil); Katia Wagner, who was declared as Miss Earth-Air, is the highest Austrian beauty queen to achieve such feat in the Miss Earth pageant to date. Miss Thailand's Punika Kulsoontornrut won the title as Miss Earth-Water 2013, the highest title a Thai beauty queen achieved in the said beauty pageant. She shares that distinction with Watsaporn Wattanakoon, the Miss Earth-Water 2010. While the representative from Korea, Catharina Choi, achieved the same feat as Katia Wagner, but also the first Asian to snatch the Miss Earth-Fire title.

The theme of this year’s Miss Earth edition was “International Year of Water Cooperation”.
