The Miss Hong Kong Pageant, otherwise known as Miss HK, is a beauty pageant organized by a local Hong Kong television station, Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB).

According to the organizing committee, participants must have a Hong Kong ID or be born in Hong Kong.

The age requirement is between 17 and 27-years-old as of 2011, which has moved up two years from the previous cut off age of 25.

In 2012, as a first for Hong Kong, every citizen with valid identity card was allowed to vote for the candidates.

The Miss Hone Kong Pageant also has no demanding entry criteria and has a wider public participation rate, which attracts many young women to achieve their dreams.

Moreover, the competition has had a range of young women who have reached superstardom.

The pageant started in 1973, and has become a competition and cultural symbol for the locals.

Many well-known artists and celebrities have risen to fame thanks to the competition. For instance, actress Angie Chiu was the third runner-up in the first season of the Miss Hone Kong Pageant. Michelle Reis, who was another female celebrity, was the winner of 1988 competition.
