Candy just celebrated its debut in March. That's 18 years of empowering teens in the Philippines, always encouraging Candy Girls to be their best-est selves ever. Every Filipina Teen's best-est friend has launched many teen models' careers in the past 18 years and we're not stopping any time soon.
With the print magazine bidding goodbye last November, and Candymag.com continuing the brand's legacy online, many Candy Girls have been expressing how much they miss seeing their favorite magazine on stands.
Back in 2000, we launched the first ever Candy Teen Model Search where Carissa Francisco emerged as the winner, gracing the cover of our July 2000 issue.
The tradition would continue on for the next seven years, producing true-blue Candy models that we're pretty sure you all grew up seeing in the pages of your magazines.
Candy Teen model winners through the years including Ellen Adarna who appeared on her first Candy cover in July 2005.
In 2007, we produced a web series, inspired by the popular series America's Next Top Model. We released the webisodes on the site, showing the process of calling for model hopefuls, interviewing and screening the finalists, and producing the cover shoot of the winner.
This year as we celebrate our 18th birthday, we're proud to announce that we will be partnering with the country's biggest TV network to give you THE FIRST EVER CANDY TV SHOW! We're just as excited as you are and we absolutely can't wait to tell you more!
P.S. Happy April Fool's Day! :P
