The pageant selects, every year, the representative from Moldova to the Miss World competition. Miss Moldova 2017 Anna Badaneu passed on her crown, and the right to represent Moldova at Miss World to the new Miss Moldova 2018 Tamara Zaretskaya.

Tamara Zaretskaya fought against 21 amazing girls from all over Moldova and emerged as the winner as the competition came to a halt. Tamara also holds the title "Top Model Moldova 2016" and is one of the most successful models in the country. That could definitely be held as a helping factor in her win.
