Ilonggas anywhere in the world who exude effortless grace, stunning beauty, and with firm values are encouraged to join the first-ever Miss Iloilo pageant happening in 2020.
Organized by a core group under Iloilo Festivals Foundation Inc. (IFFI), Miss Iloilo 2020 was recently launched with the vision of producing Ilongga beauties who will represent the city in the national and international pageant every year.
The official tagline of the pageant is Heartfelt Beauty.
“The next Miss Iloilo will be a woman of beauty, elegance, talent, intelligence, and so much more,” said pageant producer Ms. Sarah Peña. “She is a woman who is ahead of her time and has a conscious effort to contribute to the growth of society.”
Aspiring candidates must be female with Ilongga lineage, at least 5’6″ in height and 17-25 years old. Submission of applications and requirements for screening will run from October 1 to 31, 2019.
The organizers will hold final screening on November 9, and they are looking to present 12-15 finalists on November 23.
Candidates will be oriented about Miss Iloilo and taught the values of faith, hope, and love. They encouraged to have their own social projects and advocacies that will have an impact on the community.
On pageant night at WVSU Cultural Center on January 23, these candidates will compete for 3 major titles: Ms. Iloilo – Dinagyang 2020 (to be supported and compete in Ms. Aliwan 2020), Ms. Iloilo – Bb. Pilipinas 2020 (to be supported in her journey to join and win Bb. Pilipinas 2020), and Ms. Iloilo – World 2020 (to be supported in her journey to join and win Ms. Philippines World 2020)
The three major title winners will each take home a cash prize of P60,000 and an international tour package for two.
The first and second runners up will receive P20,00 and P15,000 respectively.
