Smart, Voyager power historic Binibining Pilipinas 2017 fan votes

Posted on Apr 27, 2017

Filipino fans are set to experience the Binibining Pilipinas 2017 pageant like never before as PLDT wireless unit Smart Communications, along with its digital innovations arm Voyager Innovations, power the SMS and digital fan voting of the Binibining Pilipinas 2017 pageant, where the winner of the text votes will automatically be part of the Top 15 finalists–an exciting first in the pageant’s 53-year history.

Fans only need to send BB (ex. BB23) to 2929022 to cast their votes and support their favorite candidates. Votes will be counted from today until 9PM of April 30 during the Binibining Pilipinas Coronation Night.

Pageant aficionados can vote for their bets an unlimited number of times during the voting period, and subscribers of all mobile networks* can send in their votes to the SMS gateway powered by Voyager.

“As we’ve seen during the country’s hosting of the 65th Miss Universe last January, pageant competitions have become more digital like never before. We’re glad that the Binibining Pilipinas 2017 will also be putting the power into the hands of millions of Filipino pageant fans by giving them a chance to vote for their bets, powered by the combined digital technologies of Smart and Voyager,” said Manuel V. Pangilinan, Chairman of PLDT, Smart, and Voyager.

Additionally, fans can also follow @realbbpilipinas on Twitter and use the hashtag of their favorite Binibini like this: #Binibini(number) and #BbPilipinas2017. They may also download the CHOICELY app and vote from there.

With a lot of avenues to interact, this year’s Binibining Pilipinas pageant is proving to be the most digitally powered yet–and with the Philippines being a pageant-crazy and social media-savvy nation, Filipino fans are sure to turn in by the droves and support all their Binibini bets in every way possible.
