In an event that aims to celebrate the organization’s new vision of creating a better tomorrow where true beauty establishes the standard for an optimistic future, Mutya ng Pilipinas is finally returning after more than two full years of absence in the national pageantry scene.
Earlier today, a Press Conference was held inside CWC Interiors at the Ground Floor of Milestone in BGC.
Mutya ng Pilipinas Chairman Fred Yuson and President Cory Quirino presided over the event where they announced the Launch of Mutya ng Pilipinas 2022. If you will notice, the “ng” is back, signaling a return to its roots. A November, 2022 schedule has been set for this year’s Finals. Three titles will be handed out:
1) Mutya ng Pilipinas 2022 (the main title but with no pageant assignment yet since Miss Asia Pacific is still postponed this year)
2) Mutya ng Pilipinas Tourism International 2022 (appointed rep since the Malaysia-based pageant will have a September playdate)
3) Mutya ng Pilipinas Overseas Communities
Klyza Castro is now the longest-reigning Mutya ng Pilipinas titleholder
A surprise announcement was made by Mr. Yuson regarding the inaugural edition of Miss Mutya International
in 2023 – a pageant that will endeavor to assemble the best and most beautiful of Filipinas with foreign lineage as well as international delegates coming from different parts of the world. This effort will be akin to the Miss Maja International which established the “Maja” brand for several decades. “Mutya” will be the first Filipino-named and branded pageant.
This year’s theme for Mutya ng Pilipinas will revolve around inclusivity and sustainability, to go hand-in-hand with the “Shine Hometown Girl” catch phrase started back in 2019.
A hard decision has been made.
Mutya Pilipinas cancels its 2020 pageant to ensure the health and safety of the community. The Board of Directors of Mutya ng Pilipinas Inc (MNPI) headed by Chairman Fred Yuson and President Cory Quirino will instead focus on humanitarian efforts in support of the frontliners and communities in need, particularly the street children.

“Let’s adapt, let’s evolve. This is the digital revolution…”
Mutya Chairman Fred Yuson
– Fred Yuson, Chairman of Mutya Pilipinas
This was a quotable quote during the FB live held earlier when Mutya President Cory Quirino asked “her boss” about the direction the pageant will be headed this 2020.
Mr. Yuson remains optimistic despite the pandemic crisis. Changes may be implemented because of the “new normal” and some of it may look “anti-social”, but he reasoned that it will all make sense eventually. After all, everything happens for a reason. And in keeping with the digital age, Mutya Pilipinas will still definitely be green-and-go.
“Hindi pa tayo laos (we are not obsolete), we have the right people and we will show them that we are still a cut above the rest…” added Mr Yuson.
5’9″ Klyza Castro of Davao City and 5’11” April May Short of Zamboanga City made it a 1-2 punch of victory for Mindanao in Mutya Pilipinas 2019 after they were crowned as the country’s representatives this year for Miss Asia Pacific International here in Manila and World Top Model in Monaco.
Both ladies will have their hands full the coming months as they prepare for their respective pageant missions.
Tyra Goldman of Nevada is now the first overseas community representative to win the right to represent us in Malaysia’s Miss Tourism International.
Early strong contender – the statuesque Cyrille Payumo of Pampanga – faltered in her Top 6 Q&A and settled for 1st Runner-Up honors.
Here now is the complete set of winners for Mutya Pilipinas 2019
Mutya Pilipinas Asia-Pacific International 2019:

Congratulations to all!
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.
