‘Ring Light’ Provides a Glimpse Into the World of Miss Universe Philippines Pageants
Subscriptions to the 8-episode series also raises funds for the candidates’ chosen beneficiaries
The Philippines loves beauty pageants, thanks in large part to the influence of Spain and the United States on our culture. Since joining Miss Universe in 1952, the country has consistently sent representatives to the international pageant almost every year. In the past decade, this love for pageantry has grown even bigger following Venus Raj’s win as the 4th Runner-Up at the 2010 Miss Universe pageant.
Ring Light, the first-ever online pageant series by Miss Universe Philippines, then takes advantage of Filipinos’ love for the competition by taking them behind the scenes and beyond the spotlight, showing what it takes to be a candidate. The series hopes to revolutionize beauty pageants by showing a more modern and contemporary side of the competitions, promoting “empowered beauty with a purpose.”
It’s more than just entertainment, though. A portion of each subscription to the 8-episode series will also raise funds for the candidates’ chosen beneficiaries as well as the pageant’s partner organizations: AHA! Learning Center, and WWF.
“We’re very excited to launch Ring Light, the first-ever fundraising online pageant series that will allow fans to take the same journey to the crown while making a positive impact,” says Shamcey Supsup-Lee, Miss Universe Philippines National Director and Miss Universe 2011 Third Runner-Up. “With this online series, we hope to inspire our viewers to find their own light and empowerment and show that beauty is not only skin deep.”
