A new pageant in the country gathered single women and single moms on one stage to compete for the right to represent the Philippines in an international pageant this year.
The official candidates of Miss Global Philippines 2014 were officially presented to the press at Hotel H2O in Manila. The winner will wear the Philippine sash in the Miss Global pageant, which will be held on December 19 in the US.
“By giving equal opportunity to beauty queen aspirants, Miss Global Philippines hopes to boost the confidence of women and empower them to do more,” said Pauline Laping, Miss Global Philippines national director and CEO.
The pageant also aims to help promote the country as a world-class tourism destination. “We envision our candidates and eventual winners to be not just be proud of themselves, but also proud of our culture and heritage,” adds pageant COO and former Miss Philippines Earth titlist Stephany Stefanowitz.
The finals is slated on October 11, Saturday, 7 PM at the Newport Performing Arts Theater of Resorts World Manila.
