Excited to join @IGersManila’s 5th Philippine Instagram Photo Exhibit #PIPE5? Please read the mechanics below!
Instagramers Manila Philippines (@IGersManila), the official Philippine representative of the http://instagramers.com network of cities and international Instagram communities, conducts an annual event dubbed as the Philippine Instagram Photo Exhibit (#PIPE) showcasing Pinoy’s visual artistry, creativity and ingenuity through mobile photography and visual storytelling.
Promoting photography using smartphones, this annual event has featured snapshots taken mostly from streets and public places that captures the unique Pinoy culture and lifestyle, thus the hashtag #KalyePH.
Now on it’s fifth annual run, the 5th Philippine Instagram Exhibit (“#PIPE5”), @IGersManila is deviating from the previous themes of the competition. This year’s exhibit shall adopt the theme ”Break The Rules!”
From the #PIPE tradition of focusing only on street photography #KalyePH, we are breaking the rules and going beyond the norm to expand the scope of the exhibit by including additional categories as part of the competition.
@IGersManila is also veering away from the structure of the previous exhibits by making this year’s exhibit an online competition only . Furthermore, the number of awards has been expanded to reflect the diversity of a community that @IGersManila has formed.
The new categories for #PIPE5 are the following:
During the opening of @IGersManila’s #PIPE4 at The Annex SM City North EDSA on 24-October-2015, IGers and mall goers were requested to vote for the Exhibitors’ Choice and the Shoppers’ Choice among the visual stories on display for the annual exhibit.
Melding portraiture and street photography, this year’s theme highlighted the Filipino malling lifestyle. Exhibitors, shoppers and mall-goers gamely voted for three (3) of their most liked visual story on display printed by @StoryTellPrints.

It started with the tradition of Circle of Energy to hype the event followed by a short introduction of @IGerManila by our founder, Carl Lozano (aka Daddy C) and a welcome address by Ms. Che Che Samson, Mall Manager of SM City North EDSA. The qualifiers introduced themselves thereafter.
September 19, 2015 — the third batch of qualifiers had their photowalk in SM City North Edsa. After getting oriented about the photowalk, they had an scrumptious snacks from Yoshinoya. It was called Japanese Famous Beef Bowl — bowl of rice topped with beef and onion simmered in a mildly sweet sauce. Everyone was excited when the food was being served by the very friendly staff of Yoshinoya at SM City North Edsa. Of course, before eating those yummy beef bowl, time to snap and edit for the #PIPE4_B3BTS and the hashtag provided by Yoshinoya, #KpopAsha.
With #IGMNL doing the 3rd and final leg of the photowalk round for the 4th Philippine Instagram Photo Exhibit #PIPE4, the following IGers were screened and selected by #TheComm to be part of Batch 3 for #PIPE4.

The tenderness of the beef will melt inside your mouth leaving you want for more. Served with rice and a sprinkle of sesame seeds, their Beef Bowl will give you a genuine Japanese flavour and will definitely give you gustatory delights! The perfectly chilled red tea will satisfy and quench your thirst, too.
Our huge thanks to Yoshinoya Philippines for treating IGersManila’s #TheMods, #TheColl, and #PIPE4 Batch 2 Qualifiers a sumptuous meal and for letting us experience a taste from the land of the rising sun.
