Miss Asia Pacific International under New Leadership to Make Comeback

Miss Asia Pacific International, a global competition based in Manila, is set to make a comeback under new leadership. Pageant veteran Eva Psychee Patalinjug is taking on the role of president, succeeding Jacqueline Tan-Sainz who will remain as CEO.

Patalinjug, a multiple titleholder who was crowned Mutya ng Pilipinas-Asia Pacific International in 2014, expressed her excitement about leading the organization. The competition is returning after a five-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The upcoming edition of Miss Asia Pacific International will feature new initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion. Married women and mothers will be allowed to participate, and the age limit has been extended to 30 years old.

Joining Patalinjug in organizing the pageant is Kristine Caballero-Aplal, who has been involved with the organization for several editions. Aplal aims to continue promoting inclusivity and empowerment through the platform.

The Philippines’ representative for the 2024 competition has already been announced as Blessa Figueroa, a finalist in The Miss Philippines Culture and Heritage Celebration. The country has a history of success in the international pageant, with five Filipino women winning titles in previous years.

The Miss Asia Pacific International pageant is expected to return with a renewed focus on celebrating diversity and empowerment, offering a platform for women to showcase their beauty and voices on a global stage.
