SUBIC BAY FREEPORT, Philippines – Despite the pandemic and community quarantine restrictions, the Miss World Philippines 2021 coronation night will push through here on Sunday at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center (SBECC).

According to Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chief Wilma Eisma, the pageant’s final ceremony here was only approved after rigorous vetting of COVID-19 health procedures and subsequent assurances by organizers that they will strictly follow protocols set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF).


“This will be another bubble event like the other ones Subic had hosted for basketball and volleyball tournaments, as well as some national conferences,” Eisma said.

“The SBMA Board approved the request of ALV Event International, Inc., the organizer of the Miss World Philippines, to have the event here in Subic only after the Regional Task Force (RTF3) conducted an online coordination meeting with us and the organizers,” she added.


Among the requirements set were full vaccination of all attendees; conduct of daily antigen tests, including guests, during the pageant; 24-hour posting of marshals with placards to act as health and safety protocol checkers, along with usherettes; and daily health declarations/reports with QR-coded IDs for contact tracing.

“Aside from the 44 candidates, there will also be guests and members of the organizing committee who will be taking part in the event. And we all want them to contain themselves for the duration of the event,” Eisma added.

“We’d like to stress here that we have set a 1:30 marshal-guests ratio to ensure enforcement of health protocols and that there will be only 800 attendees in a 5,000-capacity venue,” she also said.

The coronation night will feature 44 candidates vying for seven crowns – titles for Miss World Philippines, Miss Eco Philippines, Miss Eco

Teen Philippines, Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas, Miss Multinational, Miss Philippines Tourism, and Miss Environment International – in the pageant.

The Miss World Philippines pageant is on its 10th edition this year.
