Modern single women 16 to 25 years old from Filipino ancestry have joined the 27th Festival Beauty Pageant Miss Philippines Australia and Miss Charity Queen which offers and creates a positive platform for who they are in this century and make positive contribution through partnerships with charities, sponsors, families and friends. Philippines Australia Sports and Culture (PASC) Incorporated a non-profit organisation which organises the longest, biggest, most exciting beauty pageant in the whole of the Filipino community in Australia says that the activity empowers women to be confident, developing at the same time their personal and professional career ambitions. The candidates exemplify the modern day generation and also enrich themselves of the culture of their parents and ancestors. The modern women candidates develop also their sense of humanitarian services as they go and visit different charitable institutions in the Philippines and in some instances disaster places ravaged by storms and typhoons.
Winners of the 2015 Miss Philippines Australia and Miss Charity Queen distribute the charity donations raised from the beauty pageant, visit recipient institutions and meet students receiving scholarships.
There are other titles to be won at the festival beauty pageant such as Miss Popularity or The People’s Choice for everyone can vote either by online at the Miss Philippines Australia website and by the ballot found at the souvenir program by dropping the ballot at the box not later than 4pm on the day of the 27th Fiesta Kultura, Monday 5 October 2015 at Fairfield Showground, Praeriewood NSW. Photographers also select the Most Photogenic, candidates vote for the Miss Friendship and of course the panel of judges determine the coveted Miss Philippines Australia and the highest fund raiser gets the Miss Charity Queen title.
