Miss World PH 2021 coronation night to push through on October 3

After being postponed five times, the Miss World Philippines 2021 coronation night will finally be pushing through on Sunday, October 3 at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center Hall A.

The Miss World Philippines Organization made the announcement in an Instagram post on Friday, October 1. The event has the full endorsement of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) and the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA).

The organization ensured the "strict implementation of all IATF-mandated protocols for the safety of all the candidates, organizers, and production crew."

The pageant's main event has been postponed several times due to COVID-19 restrictions. It was originally set for July 11, coinciding with the Binibining Pilipinas pageant. It was then moved to July 25, then to August 8, then to September 19. On September 18, the organization said that they would be postponing the event indefinitely.

Forty-four candidates will be competing for seven crowns in the 2021 edition of the pageant – Miss World Philippines, Miss Eco Philippines, Miss Eco Teen Philippines, Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas, Miss Multinational, Miss Philippines Tourism, and Miss Environment International. 

The title of Miss Supranational Philippines was awarded to Dindi Pajares ahead of the coronation night so that she could participate in the international pageant in August. She finished in the Top 12. – Rappler.com
