Binibining Pilipinas, or Miss Philippines, is the most prestigious beauty pageant in the Philippines. It has three major titles—Binibinig Pilipinas Universe, Binibining Pilipinas International, and Binibining Pilipinas World—who represent the country in three international beauty pageants. Binibining Pilipinas is a project of non-stock, non-profit Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. (BPCI) and the official Philippine franchise holder of the Miss Universe Pageant since 1964; Miss International since 1968; and Miss World since 1992. The organization's chair Madame Stella Márquez de Araneta was a titleholder herself—Miss Colombia who was a Miss Universe semi-finalist and winner of the first Miss International search in 1960.

Aside from gathering the country's representatives in international beauty searches, Binibining Pilipinas serves as BPCI's primary instrument for several of its fund-raising activities and projects.

Binibining Pilipinas Universe

From 1952 to 1963, the Philippine representative to the Miss Universe pageant was selected through what was then called Miss Philippines. In 1964, Binibining Pilipinas acquired the local franchise for Miss Universe and first bestowed the crown on Ma. Myrna Sese Panlilio.

The country has since produced two Miss Universe winners, Gloria Diaz in 1969 and Maria Margarita Moran in 1973. Miriam Quiambao was first runner-up in 1999.

Binibining Pilipinas World

It was only in 1966 that the Philippines sent its first representative to the Miss World pageant from then until 1975, the Philippine delegate to the Miss World was chosen through Miss Republic of the Philippines. In 1977, the franchise was transferred to Mutya ng Pilipinas where the official envoy was selected until 1991.

The Philippines's first Miss World is yet to be crowned. Evangeline Pascual won second place in 1973. Ruffa Gutierrez was proclaimed Miss World 2nd Princess in 1993 and Carlene Aguilar was a crowd favorite and semi-finalist in 2005.


Binibining Pilipinas International

The local franchise for Miss International was obtained in 1968, with Nenita Ramos proclaimed as the first winner who eventually became a semi-finalist. In 1969, the proclamation was made alongside Binibining Pilipinas Universe in one grand coronation night that set the trend for multiple proclamations of beauty titles.

The Philippines has four Miss International winners, placing second to Venezuela for the most Miss International titleholders: Gemma Cruz in 1964, Aurora Pijuan in 1970, Melanie Marquez in 1979, and Precious Lara Quigaman in 2005.
