Miss World Philippines is a member of the Miss World Organization based in London, England.

While the franchise had been in existence in the Philippines for many decades, it was only in 2011 when the name Miss World Philippines emerged as a brand. This was largely the success of new license holder Cory Quirino after the franchise was transferred from the Binibining Pilipinas company to CQ Global Quest Inc.
Since 2011, Miss World Philippines has produced world-class beauty queens who proudly represented the country in the Miss World Finals. Their triumph on the international stage yielded five winners in the Top Ten plus , the biggest of victories , that of Megan Young in 2013 as the first Filipina to win the crown of Miss World.
“Beauty pageant experts told me that it was impossible to win the elusive Blue Crown. ” said Cory Quirino. ” And this was the motivating reason why I accepted the license- to prove that the impossible was possible”.
Taking inspiration from Miss World’s “Beauty With a Purpose”, an advocacy for marginalized women and children, a new pediatric ward for terminally-ill cancer patients has risen in the Philippine General Hospital through the PGH Medical Foundation¬† led by Dr. Greg Alvior. A plaque at the entrance immortalizes the historic turn-over.
” Behold beauty’s purpose manifesting itself in concrete terms by way of this special ward. Let it serve as our legacy.¬† And may it save our children ” Ms. Quirino added.
The twin advocacy of Miss World Philippines includes the cause of Streetchildren and their transformation through Tuloy Foundation headed by Father Rocky Evangelista. Today, over 1,000 children are housed in its impressive Alabang facility.
Miss World Philippines has continued to gain prominence and popularity over the past six years. This is proof positive that the brand is now in the consciousness of millions of Filipino followers worldwide.
