MANILA, Philippines – The public has so much power in deciding the winners of The Miss Philippines Culture and Heritage Celebration and the Mister Pilipinas Worldwide contest that half of the scores will come from their votes.
The two searches opened their web voting on October 15 via social media announcements. “Your vote is important as 50 percent of the total scores come from public votes. Tap the star button on Choicely to show your support for your favorite delegate,” the organizers said when they asked for votes.
