The World Guyana focuses on all aspects of the Miss World competition, especially raising money for charities, and mirroring the role and spirit of Miss World at a national level. With a top 40 placement in 2019 with Miss World Guyana 2019, Joylyn Conway, Guyana has had tremendous recent successes on the Miss World stage, including top 10 overall finishers by Rafieya Hussain in London in 2014 and Lisa Punch in China in 2015. Perhaps the most notable success story on the Miss World stage can be attributed to Shakira Baksh (Caine) who represented Guyana at Miss World in 1967 and finished third overall. She went on to launch her Modelling Career in London. The winner of Miss World Guyana 2022 will have the right to represent the country as Miss Guyana at the Miss World competition next year.
