For the first time, joint winners were chosen at the Miss Albania beauty competition: Both Miss World Albania and Miss Universe Albania were crowned in the same event. Miss Albania organizer Vera Grabocka (who owns the Miss World franchises) joined forces with photographer Fadil Berisha (franchise holder for Miss Universe in Albania) to produce a single event to choose the local representatives for the international competitions.
