MISS LYRA GOES INTERNATIONAL!

In 2022 we are proud to announce that Miss Lyra are finally spreading our wings & expanding internationally! 

Thanks to the pandemic, we are now able to bring the Miss Lyra competition overseas in an entirely online format! Successful competitors will represent their country by submitting their competition piece via video, which will then be aired to the world in a virtual show (see below for more details).

We begin our international journey in 2022 with ASIA PACIFIC, UK & the USA (see dates below). If you would like Miss Lyra in your country, please contact us at info@misslyraaustralia.com.au.
