History[edit]

The Philippines inherited the practice and promotion of beauty pageants from the Kingdom of Spain and United States who colonized the country and reflected its obsession with pageantry through the Santero culture. Accordingly in 1970s, they were popularized during the tenure of former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos and his wife, Imelda Marcos.[8]

The first official beauty pageant in the Philippines was held in 1908 during the Manila Carnival, [9][10] which organized both American and Philippine diplomatic relations,[9] and to exhibit achievements in commerce and agriculture.[10], crowning it’s winner as the “Carnival Queen”, [11] which was held annually from 1908—1938.[10]

In 1926, the Manila Carnival conceptualized and held the first national beauty pageant using the title Miss Philippines to represent the Philippine islands, contestants came from all over the country with the following regional titles:

  • Miss Luzon
  • Miss Visayas
  • Miss Mindanao

This new competition gained greater popularity, resulting the phasing out of the “Carnival Queen” title in 1938.[12]

Binibining Pilipinas[edit]

In 1964, with the advent of Stella Araneta through Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated, (BPCI) became the official national franchise holder of the Miss Universe Organization and has been sending representatives in the Miss Universe pageant since 1964, previously passed on by its predecessor, the “Miss Philippines”, which had been the official franchise holder from 1952 to 1963.[13][14][15]

In 1968, the same organization acquired the Philippine franchise of the Miss International and conducted a separate pageant called "Miss Philippines" to select a representative for the Miss International competition. In 1969, BPCI started to combine Binibining Pilipinas and Miss Philippines pageants and awarded the title "Binibining Pilipinas" to the representative in the Miss Universe and "Miss Philippines" to the representative in the Miss International.

  • For the first time in 1972, both titles: "Binibining Pilipinas Universe" and "Binibining Pilipinas International" were awarded to the winners.

Miss World[edit]

The Philippine representatives to Miss World pageant from 1966 to 1968 were chosen by various pageant organizers.[16] From 1969 to 1976, the title was awarded through the Miss Republic of the Philippines, then by Mutya ng Pilipinas, Inc. through Mutya ng Pilipinas pageant from 1977 to 1991, and Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. through the Binibining Pilipinas pageant from 1992 to 2010.[17]

Miss Earth[edit]

In 3 April 2001, Carousel Productions decided to establish a beauty pageant that actively promoted the protection and preservation of the environment. Consequently, Miss Philippines (currently called Miss Philippines Earth; not related to the defunct “Miss Philippines” of 1926) was created.[23][24][25]

Hosting[edit]

Philippines first hosted its major international pageant in 1974 for Miss Universe. It has also hosted Miss Earth several times, being originated in the country since year 2001. [8][26]

Year of Hosting Pageant Organization
1974, 1994, 2016 Miss Universe
2001 - 2009, 2011 - 2014, 2016 - 2018 Miss Earth

List of crossovers[edit]
