MISS INTERCONTINENTAL ® Delegates must be at least 18 years old and under 27 (in the year they participate in the telecast). TOP MODEL OF THE WORLD ® candidates must be at least 17 and under 26 (in the year they participate in the telecast). MISTER INTERCONTINENTAL Delegates must be 18 years old and under 40 years of age.

The way to the crown is not easy. The Delegates for the national Pageants, participate in local and/or state pageants first - which are produced by local and state pageant directors - as the preliminary step. The winner of the city pageants competes in the state pageant for her home city. The state winners become Delegates for the national pageant. MISS and MISTER INTERCONTINENTAL Pageant delegates must win their respective national pageants in their countries to compete in the event.

For TOP MODEL OF THE WORLD we work as well with "First Class"- Modelling agencies around the globe and have state directors who are producing national pageants or castings to select their winner to compete in our event.
