On Friday, August 21, in the social media of the Miss Earth Australia pageant appeared the official information that 25-year-old Brittany Dickson was the winner of the Miss Earth Australia 2020 title and obtained the right to represent Australia in the jubilee 20th edition of the Miss Earth pageant, which in this year are completely virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. The new Miss Earth Australia was crowned during a special event held on Sunday, September 20.
The coronavirus pandemic meant that the organizers of the Miss Earth Australia contest did not undertake the organization of this year’s edition of the competition. However, this does not mean that they have resigned from electing the Australian delegate, who will take part in the Miss Earth 2020 pageant. On the contrary! The winner of the Miss Earth Australia 2020 title was selected from among three girls, who advanced to the final five during the Miss Earth Australia 2019 final! The best of them turned out to be Brittany Dickson!

Happiness has smiled on Brittany in this year! As the world began fighting the coronavirus pandemic, many events were canceled, including beauty pageants. However, the organizers of the Miss Earth Australia pageant decided to select a girl, who will represent Australia in the Miss Earth 2020 pageant. Therefore, to compete for the title they invited women, who took places in the top five in the last year’s competition . Among them was Brittany, who turned out to be the best in all three phases of this year’s qualifying round!
Brittany Dickson’s coronation took place one month after her announcement as Miss Earth Australia 2020 winner. The coronation event was held on Sunday, September 20 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney. In addition to Brittany, the titles were taken by Sheridan Mortlock (Miss Air Australia 2020) and Karyn Xie (Miss Water Australia 2020).
