Miss Kazakhstan (Kazakh: Мисс Қазақстан) is a national beauty pageant in Kazakhstan.



Miss Kazakhstan pageant was founded in 1997 by Agency San Bell, and the pageant has now become a major annual event in the cultural life of the country. The competition is traditionally held with the support of the Ministry of Culture of Kazakhstan. Since 2015 Agency San Bell announced that from that year on the winner of Miss Kazakhstan national beauty pageant will only go to Miss World.

Miss Universe Kazakhstan

The representative for Miss Universe will be selected through the Miss Almaty contest whose organizer will solely be responsible for funding the participation in the contest. Almaty is the largest city of Kazakhstan. Miss Almaty, however, will also qualify for Miss Kazakhstan. In the event she wins the Miss Kazakhstan title, she will go to both Miss World and Miss Universe provided there is no conflict.
