Road to Miss Guatemala 2013 has officially begun. Casting calls have gone out. This year will be completely different from previous years. We are starting up fresh with a new organization under new ownership. The old organization ( if we can call it an organization) was a complete mess and a total embarrassment. Hopefully this new organization won't disappoint.
Gira de la Belleza Nacional (National Tour of Beauty) will consist of 3 preliminaries this year held in different parts of the country.
- The first will be a swimsuit preliminary and will be held in Escuintla, Guatemala.
- The second will be held in Coban, Guatemala and will feature costumes from each department/state that is being represented.
- The third preliminary will be held in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala and will feature evening gowns. During the evening gown presentation, Miss Guatemala World will also be chosen.
The event will take place sometime in June.
The chosen winner will represent Guatemala at the Miss Universe 2013 and at Miss Continente Americano 2013. Miss World Guatemala will represent Guatemala at the Miss World 2013. Miss Guatemala Internacional will represent Guatemala at the Miss International 2013.
