The Miss Universe Organization Press Site is intended to provide Press Releases, Photographs, and Videos to members of the media who want to cover MISS USA®, MISS UNIVERSE® and MISS TEEN USA®.
Access to our on-line photo database and archive is restricted to legitimate members of the media who have been issued a user name and password by the Miss Universe Organization. Use of these images are governed by the Conditions of Use.
Content is organized by Pageant. At the top of every page is a list of the three pageants:
A appears over the currently selected Pageant. You can change Pageants at any time by clicking on Pageant in the list.
Each Event to the press site contains one more related files. A Event may have any combination of related photos, videos or press releases.
For example a Event entitled "Delegate Arrival & Registration" would include multiple photos of delegates arriving and registering. Each Event has a name which provides a short overview of the included files. For instance "National Costumes," "Official Delegate Portraits," "Dress Rehearsal," "Presentation Show Swimsuits," and "Presentation Show Evening Gown".
Each Pageant has three areas for Events:
News Feed: This is where you will find the latest Events containing photos, videos, and press releases for the Pageant.
Press Kit: This is where you will find Events containing background information on the Pageant. This is our up-to-date Press Kit.
Archives: This is where you will find Events from previous Pageants. Events from previous years are typically organized into folders. Folder events are marked with the icon.
The News Feed, Press Kit, and Archives pages contain a list of Events. The most recent Events are at the top, the oldest are at the bottom. On the left side are a series of icons which give a visual indication of what you will find in the Event.
|This Event contains one or more Press Releases|

On-site Media Credentials are handled separately from access to our Press Site.
Members of the press who plan to be on-location to attend one of our Pageants, and would like Media Credentials, must specifically apply for Media Credentials. A separate application must be filled out for each Pageant you would like to attend.
The Application for Media Credentials, along with our On-Location Media Guidelines, will be posted to this web site well in advance of each Pageant. Generally, the "Credentials" link at the top of each page will take you directly to the page where they are posted.
The application must be filled out, and faxed to us along with supporting documentation prior to the specified deadline. Please fill out your application carefully and accurately. The Miss Universe Organization reserves the right, in it's sole discretion, to grant or reject any requests for Media Credentials.
