Steffi also took home the awards for Best in Swimsuit, Best in Evening Gown, Best in Festival Costume and Miss Unique Smile, while Maria was adjudged Star of the Night during the pageant. Lulette Ramilo, representing Isabela’s Bambanti festival, was named Most Photogenic.

The board of judges was composed of Deo Macalma of DZRH, 2013 Miss Universe third runner-up Ariella Arida, designer Frederick Peralta, Pete Dacuyuy of Mutya ng Pilipinas and Celle Caballero of Globe Telecom.
