The Universe Championships are an annual bodybuilding event organised by the National Amateur Bodybuilders Association (NABBA). It has a number of competitions: NABBA Mr. Universe (amateur and professional), Miss Physique, and Miss Figure.

First held in 1948, the contest was initially only for amateur male bodybuilders - but a separate contest for professionals was added in 1952. The NABBA defines amateur as someone who has "never entered and accepted prize money in an advertised professional event".
