Miss Universe Colombia 2020 is now under the guidance of national director Natalie Ackermann, and the new requirements for a potential candidate was announced few months ago. The organization and the pageant fanatics have been trying to look for a potential candidate for representing Colombia at Miss Universe 2020 stage. Miss Universe Colombia decided to branch out from Senorita Colombia Organization very recently.

The organization had previously shortlisted talented women from across the country who had sent their application to the organization and showcased their zeal to represent the country at Miss Universe stage. The shortlisted women faced their first live litmus test or the casting process as one may call in Bogotá on 26th- 27th September 2020 as they were evaluated by the jury and Natalie Ackermann, the president of Miss Universe Colombia, who will finally choose the candidate from the departments in which the most women signed up.
