The pageant was conceived on January 25, 2011 when the franchise that was previously held by Binibining Pilipinas was awarded by Julia Morley, Chair and CEO of Miss World Limited, to Cory Quirino, a Filipino tri-media personality.

Cory Quirino serves as the exclusive licensee and national director for the Philippines from 2011 to 2016.[3]

Morley, who personally awarded the franchise to Cory Quirino in Manila, clarified that she has no intention to offend Stella Araneta, the head of the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Inc.. Her decision to hold an individual Miss World contest in the Philippines was to focus more on the organization's vision, which is to raise fund for their beneficiaries and they can only do this if they will hold a separate contest.[2]

The pageant was officially launched on March 23, 2011 at the SMDC Showroom at the SM Mall of Asia.[4] [5] [6]
