- Miss World Best in Swimsuit
Miss World Best in Swimsuit was an award given to the delegate at Miss World who has the highest score at the swimsuit competition during the finals. The award has only been given out for 3 years and no award was presented from 1998 to 2002. A new competition was established in 2003 known as Miss World Beach Beauty to choose the new Best in Swimsuit winner. The winner goes on to make the semifinals automatically. The winner of this award though is chosen in the list of semifinalists during the finals unlike Beach Beauty which chooses the winner in a batch of 100+ contestants.
