This year, the pageant is produced by Uzuri International, the new franchise holder of the Miss Universe Organization in Jamaica. It was originally scheduled for July at Emancipation Park in St Andrew., but was cancelled in the last minutes due to lack of sponsorship and other professional obligations. The franchise holder, Dimitris Kosvogiannis, also relinquished the franchise of the pageant.
According to Karl Williams from Uzuri International, this year’s pageant will be scaling down due to time restraint and lack of sponsors. 10 finalists competed for the title.
