MANILA - The 40 candidates in this year's Binibining Pilipinas pageant took turns strutting on stage in bright-colored swimsuits on Wednesday during their official press presentation at Sofitel Hotel in Manila.

According to organizers, the 2014 batch consists of local pageant winners, graduates from top schools, artists, working professionals, and models who underwent training to join the national competition.

The beauty-queen hopefuls, who were trimmed down from over 100 applicants in January, are scheduled to have a fashion show on March 6 and a parade on March 22.

The coronation night will be held on March 30 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City. It will be telecast live on ABS-CBN.
