Culmination Night: Cycle 3 FACE Of The PHILIPPINES

All geared up for the grandest and most prestigous modelling competition across Asia – 2017 Asia New Star Model Contest, Face of the Philippines (FOP) has just concluded its search for Cycle 3 male/female top model and named Rizza Decena as the grand winner to represent our country. Rizza, along with other models and runner-ups, are set to compete with other model bets from over 20 Asian countries at the 7th Asia New Star Model Contest at South Korea for the coveted Face Of Asia Grand Prize.

Congratulations Rizza Decena!
How huge is Asia New Star Model Contest? Watch this short clip (and navigate thru the website while you’re there) as Face of the Philippines Cycle 2 Grand Winner Kathlyn Asuncion with fellow FOP and Art Personas models Adrian Meyers, Irene Kaye Sandig and Mariah Roxanne J competed last May 2016.

Kathlyn won a sponsor award and became part of the Face of Asia Final 10 while Irene won three sponsor awards, how awesome is that?
And not only that, Philippines’ own top models Justine Gabionza and Marx Topacio both received 2016 Asia Star Model Awards! Holla!
