Full Mechanics of the New #9pmhabit

In time for @IGersManila’s celebration of 6 awesome years of Instagram’ing this April, we have rehashed our #9pmhabit daily visual storytelling habit. Be sure to follow and turn on post notifications for @IGersManila on Instagram so you get notified of new updates for our community.

Read on for the full mechanics of the new #9pmhabit:

  1. Every day at 9:00pm Philippine Standard Time (PST / GMT +8:00), we’re asking fellow Instagram’ers across the globe to snap, filter, and share visual stories on Instagram.
  2. To join the #9pmhabit and get the chance to earn qualifying points, you must first register to be in IGersManila’s Circle of Snapshooters or #iCoss.
  3. To allow participating IGers to prepare their posts, we post a #9pmhabit reminder every day on or before 9:00pm PST.
  4. Except for special projects and social campaigns, there will be NO THEME for the #9pmhabit, but we ask participating IGers to tag only posts that best express their creativity and individuality.
  5. Upload and tag your Instagrams from 9:00pm PST until 9:00am PST the next day.
  6. Hashtag your work with #igersmanila #9pmhabit.
  7. Click or tap on any of these 2 hashtags to check out other entries. Be sure to like or double-tap all the posts and leave comments to spark conversations.
  8. There will be one (1) #PhotoPick from a shortlist of nominations by our collaborators pool every day, which will be announced before the next #9pmhabit reminder is posted.
  9. IGer who gets selected and featured as #PhotoPick will earn one (1) qualifying point for the Philippine Instagram Photo Exhibit (PIPE), held every last quarter of the year.
  10. At our annual PIPE and IGnitePH events, we’ll be recognizing top #PhotoPick winners and Likers, to name a few.
  11. Every Sunday a collage of all submissions for the week will be posted, as well as a carousel of #PhotoPick winners.
  12. The new #9pmhabit takes effect starting 09-March-2017 onwards.

Keep the good vibes rolling! #ktgvr
