Last year, we introduced the Festival Costume Competition to showcase the country’s most celebrated festivals.
THIS YEAR we are very proud to introduce the ETHNIC COSTUME COMPETITION!
There are over 100 tribal groups/original inhabitants of the Philippines that are still proudly wearing authentic, colorful and diverse ethnic costumes of the the Philippines and the most celebrated designs will conquer the center stage of MISTERS this September!
Watch out for a special night dedicated to FILIPINO ETHNICITY and INGENUITY!

Misters of Pilipinas 2015 is looking at starting a novel concept in the male pageant – an Ethnic Costume Competition. This will definitely give major highlight to the authentic tribal attires in the Philippines that have not been given enough exposure due to the predominance of Barong-inspired get-ups and the flashier festival garbs that we saw during last year’s edition.
If you will notice, the organizers have started reaching out to Visayas and Mindanao for pageant support, as well as getting productive inputs in making 2015 a more remarkable year for the event. Prior to this, I already blogged about Mati in Davao Oriental as the provincial host of the Pre-Pageant and the beachwear photoshoot.
Things are falling into place nicely. In addition, the upcoming July 5 screening has attracted a solid number of applicants (see the sneak pic below) which should make the date more promising in terms of the quality of contestants.
Keep up the good work, Misters of Pilipinas! 😀
