Mutya ng Guimaras 2016 launched

Mutya ng Guimaras was officially launched last March 31 with the presentation of the candidates at SM City Iloilo Event Center. This year, there are nine beautiful ladies proudly representing the five municipalities of the province who will be vying for the most-coveted crown.

During the Press Presentation, the candidates gamely and bravely answered the questions thrown at them by the media and bloggers. They were an epitome of beauty and poise as they shared with the audience the attractions that their respective municipalities have to offer as well as their plans of promoting their beautiful province.
