MANILA, Philippines – Organizers of the Miss International pageant have announced that the 2023 edition of the global beauty pageant will still be held in Japan, dismissing speculation that it will be held in another country.

The Tokyo-based international pageant also said the competition would no longer be held at the Tokyo Dome City Hall, where recent editions were staged. But it won’t be too far, as the new location will be just minutes away from the previous location – Yoyogi Gymnasium No. 2 in Shibuya, also in Tokyo, the capital of Japan.

The pageant’s organizers announced on social media that the next edition, the 61st episode, would be held on October 26, moving away from the November schedule in 2017, 2018 and 2019. Last year’s competition was held in December.

“Don’t forget to support your representative as we bring you the biggest and most exciting Miss International edition of them all!” Miss International pageant announced on Facebook.

“Let’s work together to make this year’s pageant the most memorable Miss International edition in history,” the pageant said on Twitter.

Stephen Diaz, Philippine marketing manager for the pageant’s organizer, the International Cultural Association (ICA) in Tokyo, told the Inquirer in an online interview that the organization is setting a limit of just 80 delegates this year. This is still three deputy from the record posted in the 2019 edition, but he said the catch was “accidental”.

Last year’s competition, the 60th edition attracting a total of 66 international delegates, was originally scheduled to take place in 2020. … The competition was again postponed to 2021.

Diaz previously indicated that the ICA had received several proposals from countries expressing their intention to participate in the Miss International pageant. He also said that the organization has carefully reviewed the proposals to determine which countries will be allowed to participate in the 61st edition. Diaz also confirmed with the Inquirer that Lesotho will debut in this year’s pageant.

The 2023 representative will currently compete for the crown by Empress Jasmine Selberg, Germany’s third Miss International winner and the first European woman to hold the crown since 2008. The Philippines will be represented by Binibining Pilipinas’ Nicole Borromeo.

Six Filipino women have taken home the Miss International crown. Gemma Cruz won the title in 1964, making her the first global pageant winner from the Philippines. She was succeeded by Aurora Pijuan in 1970, Melanie Marquez in 1979, Precious Lara Quigman in 2005, Bea Rose Santiago in 2013, and Kylie Verzosa in 2016. edv
