The 2017 Miss Philippines Earth pageant was held on Saturday and it saw Manila City’s Karen Ibasco as the new winner.

The 26-year-old sustainable energy advocate succeeds Loren Mar Artajos and will represent the Philippines in the Miss Earth international pageant in November.

The four members of Ibasco’s “elemental court” were Miss Philippines Water Jessica Marasigan from Caloocan City; Miss Philippines Eco-Tourism Vanessa Mae Castillo from Lobo, Batangas; Miss Philippines Air Kim de Guzman from Olongapo City; and Miss Philippines Fire Nellza Bautista from Villanueva, Misamis Oriental.

Here are some scenes from the coronation night of the national pageant, held at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
