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.

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:

  1. Street/#KalyePH
  2. Food/Drinks
  3. Portrait/People
  4. Nature/Landscape
  5. Black and White
  6. Typography
  7. Creative

Of course, before eating those yummy beef bowl, time to snap and edit for the #PIPE4_B3BTS and the hashtag provided by Yoshinoya, #KpopAsha.

After the snacks, everyone is now ready to snap, filter share photos in SM North Edsa for #PIPE4_B3. Thank you Yoshinoya! Keep The Good Vibes Rolling. #KTGVR
