In a press statement the Miss Gibraltar Office said this was in support of the “Government’s financial caution following the economic impact of Covid-19” and the Office will not be holding the Miss Gibraltar 2021 Pageant this year. The 2019 pageant was the last held, with the 2020 and 2021 events cancelled due to the pandemic.
However, to ensure Gibraltar’s representation at Miss World, the Miss Gibraltar Office, will be appointing Janice Sampere as this year’s Miss Gibraltar.
Janice finished as 1st Princess at the 2019 Pageant. She will be appointed to carry out the duties and assume full responsibilities as Miss Gibraltar and will represent the Rock at the Miss World Pageant scheduled to take place in December in San Juan, Puerto Rico. A ceremony will be held shortly at the Mayor’s Parlour to crown Janice as Miss Gibraltar 2021.
