The search for the next Miss Universe Philippines is ON!
Now is your chance to claim the most coveted crown in the country, as the Miss Universe Philippines 2021 pageant is coming near.
The MUPH organization announced on Monday that the last day of sending in applications for the pageant will be on June 24, 2021. They're also encouraging more Pinays to join this once in a lifetime opportunity, given that they meet the requirements.
The reigning queen Rabiya Mateo will be handing over her crown to the next Miss Universe Philippines later this year, but other ladies will also have a chance to get a role in the pageantry. The Top 5 candidates will also be given official titles based on their passions and advocacies.
Last year, Rabiya Mateo was named the Ambassadress for Education. The pageant's 1st Runner-Up Ysabella Ysmael was named Ambassadress for Arts and Culture, 2nd Runner-Up Michele Gumabao was given the title Ambassadress for Health and Fitness, 3rd Runner-Up Pauline Amelinckx was named Ambassadress for Tourism, and 4th Runner-Up Billie Hackenson was assigned to be the Ambassadress for Gender Equality.
Major awards were also given such as Best in National Costume, Best in Swimsuit, Best in Evening Gown, Face of the Universe, and Miss Photogenic. Special awards sponsored by the event's partners were also given to several ladies.
