Mutya ng Pilipinas and the Miss Intercontinental Organization forge ties, Iona Gibbs appointed Miss Intercontinental Philippines 2023
Mutya Ng Pilipinas (MNP) one of the most- respected and longest-running beauty pageants in the Philippines proudly announced its official alliance with the Miss Intercontinental Organization (MIO).
Having been awarded the license for 2023, the Mutya ng Pilipinas 2022 winner Iona Gibbs from Bataan will be the official delegate to the Miss Intercontinental 2023 pageant.
Fred Yuson, Chairman of MNP making good on his promise said: “In 2019 on our 51st Mutya ng Pilipinas edition, I made a commitment towards MNP’s growth and expansion. Today is the day with the announcement of our formal ties with MIO.”
MNP President Cory Quirino added: “We welcome MIO with open arms and look forward to a great year in Mutya ng Pilipinas 2023. Pageant fans should expect much enthusiasm and excitement this year and hopefully in the years to come.”
Sharing compatible approaches in its platform for beauty pageantry, MIO searches throughout the continents just as Mutya ng Pilipinas conducts its campaign in the far reaches of the country’s hometowns and in Filipino Overseas Communities abroad.
Expectations are high for a formidable partnership between the 51-year-old Miss Intercontinental Organization and Mutya Ng Pilipinas which will stage its 53rd edition this later year.
The license for Miss Intercontinental Philippines was previously held by Binibining Pilipinas. Past titleholders Karen Gallman and Cinderella Obeñita have won Miss Intercontinental 2018 and 2021, respectively.
