The Official Press Conference of Miss Filipina International from two parts of the globe, with members of the pageant media of the Philippines alongside the prime movers of the pageant in Los Angeles, California. Present were Founder Mildred Deang, Executive Producer Jojo Reyes, Co-Executive Producer & Director Ed Tantoco, Strategic Media Consultant Winston Emano and former titleholder Christelle Abello who is now a returning delegate of Miss Universe Philippines 2021.
For the still-uninitiated, Miss Filipina International is a worldwide search for those special young women in today’s Filipino communities around the globe with the beauty, grace and dynamic personalities, and intelligence that set them apart from the rest.
The pageant has earned the unique distinction of being the only one of its kind with tourism promotion as its fundamental core value, and also holds the status of being the only US-Filipino pageant to have been nationally televised in each of its seven years in existence. This international competition has featured candidates from Filipino communities around the world, including France, Spain, Japan, Zambia, Germany, Canada, and all over the USA. We are proud to embrace our mission of bringing Filipinos together from around the world to celebrate the wonders of our beautiful island nation.
This year, the big events will take place at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center where the Preliminary Competition will take the spotlight on July 30, a day before the much awaited Coronation Night on July 31.
23 Fil-AM Misses and 27 Fil-AM Teens will vie for the top crowns with the winners getting an all-expense paid Tourism Promotional Visit to the Philippines where they will enjoy the world-renowned hospitality of the Filipinos, as well as reconnect with their roots in the country.
The event is broadcasted internationally by ABS-CBN network’s The Filipino Channel (TFC) to a subscriber base of over three million homes.
