The final of the Miss World 2006 beauty contest will take place in Poland in September, Witold Asminowicz, a spokesman from the Miss Polonia organisation, told the Polish news agency PAP on Wednesday.

The Miss World 2005 contest, held in Sanya, China, was won in December by 21-year-old Reykjavik student Birna Vilhjalmsdottir from Iceland.

Organisers said that pageant, in its 55th edition, reached an estimated global audience of two billion.

Despite competition from the US-based Miss Universe, and attacks from critics in the West who say beauty contests are degrading to women, Miss World remains a hugely popular event worldwide.
