Mutya Pilipinas one of the longest running beauty pageants in the Philippines established in 1968 a grassroots-based national organization relaunched its brand with a new team headed by its President, Cory Quirino, media celebrity and a veteran in beauty pageantry.

It was a year of success for Team Mutya with all its queens winning and placing in international competitions.

Their roster of 2019 queens were:

Klyza Castro, Mutya Pilipinas
– Miss Asia Pacific International
Louise Janica Arroyo, Mutya Pilipinas
– Overseas Communities
April May Short, Mutya Pilipinas
– World Top Model
Tyra Rae Goldman, Mutya Pilipinas
– Miss Tourism International
Cyrille Payumo, Mutya Pilipinas
– 1st Runner Up
Maxine Rangel, Mutya Pilipinas
– 2nd runner Up
Kylza Castro finished Top 25 in the Manila-based Miss Asia Pacific International while April May Short made it to Top 12 in the World Top Model Competition in Monte Carlo, Monaco.

Cyrille Payumo who placed 1st runner up in the local pageant was sent to Miss Tourism International held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Cyrille was crowned Miss Tourism International 2019-2020.

Meanwhile, Tyra Goldman is presently in Hurghada, Egypt to represent the Philippines in the Top Model of the World Competition on January 24. It is interesting to note that all the Mutya queens are representative of the national scope and reach of Mutya Pilipinas. Castro is from Davao, Payumo from Pampanga, Short from Zamboanga, Rangel from Batangas and An from California for the Overseas Filipino Communities.

The most pleasant of surprises came with the sudden decision to send Cyrille Payumo to the Miss Tourism International pageant.

Ms. Payumo’s victory catapulted her to the level of victorious Filipinas who won in international pageants. Moreover, in 2019 she holds the distinction of having delivered the only international crown to the Philippines.

Ms. Short on the other hand was granted a €10,000.00 scholarship at the World Top Model Academy in Italy.

It will be noted that Mutya Pilipinas Chairman Fred Yuson mentioned in a recent press conference that he supports a stronger vision and mission for Mutya Pilipinas. Likewise Ms. Quirino who is upbeat about the future of Mutya Pilipinas in 2020 and beyond. “We intend to grow bigger as a relevant beauty pageant organization from hereon.”
