The Miss Hong Kong Pageant ( ), or MSHK (港姐) for short, is a beauty pageant organized by the leading Hong Kong television station, Television Broadcasts (TVB).

All participants must have a valid Hong Kong identity card or must be born in Hong Kong (with a valid birth certificate). While there has been other Miss Hong Kong pageants in prior years producing notable titleholders such as Judy Dann (1951), Virginia June Lee (1953), Michele Mok (1958), Laura da Costa (1967) and Mabel Hawkett (1970), the current annual TVB pageant began in 1973. Apart from the top prize winner, first runner-up and second runner-up prizes, the pageant also has other consolation prizes that vary slightly from year to year. Many Miss Hong Kong contestants have gone on to have movie careers as it is quite typical for the top contestants to garner television contracts from TVB.

The pageant is televised into two events. First, a preliminary event is held where 12 semi-finalists are selected from a group of candidates, the number of which is usually around 20-25 (with 30 being the maximum). Then a final event is held where the 12 semi-finalists are reduced to a final 5. The second and first runner-ups and the winner are then announced. Often several contestants dropped out of the pageant before the televised preliminary, thus there would be a candidate with #30 assigned to her, but only 25 or so contestants.

Wai Yin Association

Wai Yin Association (慧妍雅集) is the official association for all official contestants (i.e., those that made it into the semi-finals). It is a registered charity. It was established in 1982 to help the citizens of Hong Kong.

Notice that Vancouver has the most Miss Hong Kong winners from the overseas. They had a record of four consecutive winners from 1997-2000. 2000 was the only year where the top 3 delegates were all from overseas. Even though the 2007 pageant had the top 3 all from the US and Canada but Grace Wong and Lorretta Chow traveled to Hong Kong to compete in the pageant, so they are recognized by TVB to be local delegates not overseas delegates. They did however come from the overseas.

Miss Hong Kong showing at the International beauty stage

Miss Hong Kong and her runner-up are sent by TVB to represent Hong Kong at various international pageants.

However, this has not always been the case. For example, Miss Hong Kong 2004 first runner-up, Queenie Chu was sent to both Miss World and Miss International. While Miss Hong Kong 2005, Tracy Ip was sent to compete in Miss World 2005. Miss Hong Kong 1987, Pauline Yeung Po Ling competed in both Miss World 1987 and Miss Universe 1988. Miss Hong Kong 1988, Michelle Reis competed at Miss World 1988. Since 2005, TVB has decided to send the winners to Miss World instead of the 1st runner ups. However in 2006, winner Aimee Chan was 25 years old and was considered overage by the Miss World Organization. As a result the 1st runner up, Janet Chow competed at Miss World 2006.
