Julia Furdea , Miss Wahl was crowned Miss Austria 2014 in Baden/Linz last night. She will compete in both Miss Universe 2014 and Miss World 2014, whichever pageant comes first. The first runner-up is Miss Kärnten, Nadine Stroitz and the second runner-up is Miss Vienna, Katharina Nahlik.
The current Miss Universe Gabriela Isler served in the judging panel. Austria's participation in Miss Universe has not been consistent; it was absent for 18 years between 1990 and 2012. The last time Austria placed was in 1977 when Eva Maria Düringer placed second to Janelle Commissiong of Trinidad & Tobago.
