Binibining Pilipinas is set to come back this 2021!

After postponing its pageant last year amid the pandemic, the Binibining Charities, Inc. (BPCI) announced on social media that it will be pushing through with its activities this year.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the organization shared a video showcasing its past winners, including Bb. Pilipinas International 2019 Patch Magtanong and Miss International 2016 Kylie Verzosa.

"We know you've been waiting for this," the organization wrote. "The search for beautiful, empowered, and inspiring Filipinas returns this 2021 in the country's most prestigious and much-awaited pageant!"

"Get ready to relive the excitement as we get to know and crown our next set of beauty queens in a 'new normal' setting at the Binibining Pilipinas 2020/2021," the organization added, hinting at a different set up this year.

To "open the Binbining Pilipinas" season, BPCI said that it will launch a national costume photo exhibit at the Gateway Mall on January 22 to 31, and at the Ali Mall on February 1 to 14. It will feature the candidates in their own unique costumes.

While the BPCI lost the Miss Universe franchise in 2019 — Gazini Ganados was the last Bb. Pilipinas Universe crowned under its helm — it continues to have the Miss International, Miss Globe, Miss Intercontinental, and the Grand International beauty pageants under its belt.
