Mr. Philippines is an annually-held pageant that celebrates and embodies Filipino-American culture, as well as showcases the talent of representatives of collegiate level Filipino organizations.
Each year, the International Filipino Association at NYU produces Mr. Philippines: a male pageant that celebrates Filipino-American culture as it exists in the New York Metropolitan area and New Jersey. Each university within District III of the Filipino Intercollegiate Networking Dialogue (FIND, inc.) sends a representative to share their talents and their own views on Filipino-American culture. Contestants compete in Barong Wear, a Cultural/Costume Showcase, Talent Showcase, and Question & Answer for Top 5. This year, our theme is "Fashion Week.” We're looking for Filipino-American young men to put their best fit forward and showcase their unique personal styles. We're asking contestants to consider, “What does fashion mean to you?"
