Miss Universe Denmark is an annual national beauty pageant held in Denmark that selects representatives for the Miss Universe, Miss International, Miss Earth and Miss United Continent pageants. Between the year 1952 until 1986, Miss Denmark used to select one winner to represent Denmark at major beauty pageants like Miss Universe, Miss World etc.
However, between 1986-1995, Bo Andersen took charge of the Miss Universe Denmark franchise. Starting from 1996 until 2013, Memborg models operated the franchise. The current Miss Universe Denmark pageant operates as its own production under Anders de Voss, who owns ADV Productions. Aino Korva, the only Dane to place in the top 5 at Miss Universe, and Žaklina Šojic, the last Dane to place in the top 15 at Miss Universe 2007, are directly involved with the fundamentals of the new Miss Universe Denmark organisation.
