The Miss Universe official magazine cover

Program Book or program souvenir, is the official annual magazine that the Miss Universe organization emits, in the front page appears the exiting queen or some motive or landscape relative to the country where the event took place.

In the content of the above mentioned magazine appears the chronology of the events that will take place during the contest, photographs of the competitors, photographs of the previous winners, hosts and judges, it also includes information of the host city and announcements from the sponsors.

In the first editions of the official magazine, the photographs were sent from the country origin , they never arrived on time, before the magazine was pressed, not all the competitors photographs were included, and most of the pictures taken at the moment the queen was crowned were domestic pictures.

Time after, the photographs were taken in the contest itself and the first colored photographs appeared in 1974, in the1978 program ,for the first time complete body and swimsuit pictures were published, along with close up photographs.

With the evolution of the contest and technology, quality in photographs has been improved. Many details are taken care of, makeup, hairdo, in the previous years nobody noticed these points and were slightly favoring for the Misses.

The magazine has managed to be a collectors item, the Miss Universe contest is not the only one that emits or edits every year the magazine, Miss World, Miss Europe and Miss International have their own, also in a national level Miss USA, Miss Bahamas. Miss Mexico, Miss France, Miss Venezuela and a few other countries have their own program.
