At the Main Ballroom of Citadines Bay City Manila, the 40 Official Candidates of Mutya Pilipinas 2019 were introduced to members of the media in a much-anticipated Press Presentation that gathered representatives from both trad and digital sector.
President Cory Quirino was visibly happy with the turnout of attendees and was even more pleased to see the ladies giving their A-game during the swimsuit and introduction parts of the event.
Reigning titleholders Aya Fernandez, Kheshapornam Ramachandran, Pauline Amelinckx and Justine Teng lent their presence to the proceedings.
Chosen as Darlings of the Press (in a tie) are Andrea Fe Gomez of Baguio City and Maxinne Nicole Rangel of Padre Garcia, Batangas (right photo).
Below are photos from the said activity.
38 of the 40 Official Candidates for Mutya Pilipinas 2019 have already been selected by an esteemed panel headed by President Cory Quirino at the Ascott Makati.
The 38 ladies include the provincial winners and the representatives of the Overseas Filipino Communities of Los Angeles, Arizona, Ilinois, Nevada, New Jersey, Bahrain, UAE, Canada and Australia. Two more seeded delegates will check-in this coming Monday to complete the roster.
Standouts are two statuesque ladies from New Jersey (Ysabel Napiza) and Pampanga (Cyrille Payumo) plus Karla Lasquite of Cebu and Klyza Castro of Davao City.
Get to know them more during the Press Presentation this coming August 1 at Citadines Manila Bay.
Click the video above and listen to Mutya Pilipinas President Cory Quirino as she speaks about the new direction the national competition is headed to and how the inclusion of the World Top Model Philippines title will transform the brand into a hybrid beauty pageant.
The interview took place during yesterday’s Press Conference at Ascott Makati.
Mutya Pilipinas has a new crown added to their titles at stake in 2019, with World Top Model Philippines as the latest. What makes this honor unique – coinciding with the acquisition of the franchise – is the newly-forged partnership with Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) who will help in training and preparing the first winner of Mutya Pilipinas- World Top Model Philippines for her international competition that will happen in Monte Carlo (in the Principality of Monaco) this coming December 14, 2019. Its inclusion has also transformed the national pageant into a hybrid competition as it welcomes aspiring models who wish to embark on a serious modeling career internationally.
Present during the contract signing are Mutya Pilipinas Chairman Fred Yuson, Mutya Pilipinas President Cory Quirino and PMAP President Anna Siddeco.
Effectively, Mutya Pilipinas 2019 (which is being re-branded without the “ng”) will have its four winners sent to Miss Asia-Pacific International, Miss Tourism International, Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International and World Top Model. The Mutya Pilipinas Overseas Communities and two runners-up will complete the honors that this year’s anticipated 40 Official Candidates will vie for.
Chairman Fred Yuson said that, “These are exciting times for Mutya Pilipinas so you can expect more positive changes in the future as it evolves.”
Watch out for the much-awaited 2019 edition of Mutya Pilipinas which will have its national finals at the MOA Arena on August 18.

The 50-year old beauty organization – Mutya ng Pilipinas – announces its new management led by media celebrity and women empowerment advocate Cory Quirino as its President.
Ms. Quirino brings with her six successful years in pageantry having produced outstanding winners including one major international crown.
Fred Yuson, Chairman of Mutya ng Pilipinas, revealed the strategic move as “one which will positively secure the future of the organization.”
Quirino shared, “In the search for the Hometown Girl, we at Mutya intend to give every young lady who dreams of having a crown on her head and a chance to be discovered.”
Instrumental in bridging Mutya closer to aspiring candidates was the signing of an MOU with the Liga ng mga Barangay headed by Kapitana Eden Pineda under the auspices of DILG Usec. for Barangay Affairs, Martin Diño.
“Wherever the Filipina is and whatever hometown she resides in, whether here or abroad, we extend a warm invitation to her to become a member of the Mutya ng Pilipinas family”, announced Cory Quirino.
Meanwhile, the official search of Mutya ng Pilipinas begins on April 2019. Coronation night is set for August, 2019.
