Earlier in the day at the Forbes 1 Ballroom of Conrad Hotel Manila, Miss Philippines 2018 was given a well-attended Press Launch that assembled all the important representatives from TV, Print and Online Media. At first, you might ask why it took so long to have a national pageant that bore the said title. Truth be told, this is already its 2nd year of existence. And with Pageant President Francisco ‘Gareth’ Blanco at the held with new business partner – EMC Production – the 2018 edition promises to be bigger and better.
Miss Philippines aims not only to focus on beauty, talent and intelligence. It also endeavors to promote global culture, peace, the arts and tradition. It will showcase both the beauty of the Filipina and the diversity of our nation’s socio-cultural heritage. The initial objective is to select lovely, classic, talented, intelligent and empowered a target of sixty (60) candidates from all over the country who will represent different provinces/cities/municipalities.
Come Coronation Night on December 9 at the Resorts World Manila, the winners will be selected en route to representing the Philippines in Miss Tourism Queen International, Miss National Universe, Miss Princess of the World and Miss Queen & Beauty Universe.
In the same event, a Press Presentation was also held to introduce the thirty-five (35) Official Candidates of the reinvigorated Mr. Philippines 2018 where the winners will also represent the country in international competitions abroad. Finals Night is scheduled on August 11 at the Crossroads Center in QC.
This is truly a big step towards strengthening the prestige of the title “Miss Philippines”, as well as the continuation of the “Mr. Philippines” national competition that should be able to produce the best spokespersons for the Filipinos in the field of pageantry, tourism and worthwhile advocacies in various fields of importance.
