PEPPs Foundation (or Prime Events Productions Philippines Foundation Inc.) behind the two big projects, expect things to be bigger and grander.
First on the pipeline is Misters 2015 scheduled for September at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila. Compared to the roster of candidates last year, the confirmed 2015 participants are really worth looking forward to. And I’m not even factoring the various reps of Filipino Communities abroad just yet.
With Neil Perez as the reigning Mister International, it automatically follows that his national successor should be an outstanding individual, knowing fully well that back-to-back wins are extremely challenging. In the same breath, the next-in-line for the titles of Adam Davies, Joseph Doruelo and Judah Cohen are expected to surpass their individual achievements.
Now, come November, the much bigger event will be hosted right here in Manila (with the Ilocos Region as the reported provincial partner for the road caravan of all the foreign delegates). At the moment, there are forty-five (45) expected candidates based on the number of countries accredited to officially send their entries to the main competition – the 10th Anniversary of Mister International – which the organizers are aiming to make the best edition ever.
And to make the whole thing more special, two (2) Mister International titleholders will be on hand to act as the big brothers of the participants – Neil Perez (2014/15) and Jose Anmer Paredes of Venezuela (2013).
The hardworking men and women behind PEPPs, led by its President Carlo Morris Galang, have spent days and nights planning the two pageants. And they continue to do so to make sure that all details are fully covered – sponsorships, venues for the pre-pageant & finals, hotel accommodations, provincial partners that will provide the meaningful out-of-town trips for the candidates, designers committed to share their creations, transportation, media affiliations (including the potential airing TV network) and so on and so forth.
Everything is fitting nicely at this point, and I must say that I’m impressed with the developments so far. Kudos to the whole team, especially Melvin Galang, Jhune Salud, Alper Morales, James Galang, Marianne Galang, JP Anonuevo, Richard Montoya, Ian Domine, Olan Roque, Alex Moico and Dan Apacible.
Watch out for Misters 2015 and the 10th Mister International. The two pageants will excite your senses soon! 🙂
