Parul Quitola Shah is an Indian-Filipino model and beauty pageant titleholder who represented her province of Pangasinan and was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Tourism 2014 at the Binibining Pilipinas 2014 pageant held on March 30, 2014 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Quezon City, Philippines. Parul was awarded the title with Mary Jean Lastimosa, Miss Universe Philippines 2014; Mary Anne Bianca Guidotti as Binibining Pilipinas International 2014; Yvethe Marie Santiago as Binibining Pilipinas Supranational 2014; and Kris Tiffany Janson as Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2014.[2] In 2015 she is now as Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2015.



She competed at the Binibining Pilipinas 2013 pageant and was chosen as one of the 15 Semi-Finalists.[3] She decided to once again compete in Binibining Pilipinas and entered the 2014 edition on 30 March 2014, where she was crowned Binibining Pilipinas Tourism 2014 by the outgoing titleholder Binibining Pilipinas Tourism 2013, Joanna Cindy Miranda. However she could not compete in the said pageant as the pageant never happened.

Shah represented the Mountain Province during the Turismo Pilipina 2008 pageant.[5][6]
