Miss World Philippines 2011 will be held on July 30, 2011
A brand-new condominium unit and P1 million in cash are among the prizes awaiting the Philippine representative to the Miss World pageant this year as new organizers have taken over the search from its longtime franchise holder.
Media personality and wellness advocate Cory Quirino formally launched the Miss World-Philippines search last week, promising that it would be conducted with “a meaningful purpose.”
“It is high time to make a Filipina’s dreams come true, a lady who will embody the true spirit of Filipino womanhood, one who will proudly represent her country while utilizing her beauty to inspire, to help, and to heal,” Ms. Quirino told reporters.
Last January, Ms. Quirino’s CQ Global Quest bagged the franchise to conduct the search that will determine the Philippine representative to the Miss World contest, considered the oldest surviving major international beauty pageant. It was created in 1951 while Miss Universe was created in 1952 and Miss International started in 1960.
Ms. Morley was in Manila for the first time last January to award the Miss World license to Ms. Quirino’s CQ Global Quest.
Ms. Quirino admits that she was initially hesitant to accept the franchise to handle Miss World. But seeing the need to emphasize “beauty in giving,” she decided to accept the challenge.
“With more than 15 years as an officer serving Rotary International Districts 3818 and 3830, I have found the focus on community development by the organizers of Miss World congruent with my continuing advocacies,” Ms. Quirino said. “It’s my commitment to be a catalyst for women and children’s health, development and empowerment. Sociocivic undertakings will be a core activity of Miss World Philippines.”
Ms. Quirino said the search is open to all single, natural-born female Filipinos aged 17 to 24 years old. “We will hold auditions in select SM Malls in key cities nationwide to encourage more women to join,” she explained.
The finals night will be held on July 30 at the PICC. It will be aired on GMA Network, Inc.’s Channel 7.
