On 24-January-2015, @IGersManila, in partnership with @SMNorthEDSA, welcomed 2015 with a three-hour workshop for IGers dubbed as Instagramming 101: #CreateShareInspire. #TheMods together with The Collaborators (#TheColl) talked about the basics of instagram’ing to jumpstart the series of community learning activities lined up for the year.
The 2014 #KalyePH visual stories of Filipino IGers were also showcased at the SM North EDSA Cyberzone from January 24 to February 6. On the day of the event, shoppers were invited to appreciate the visual stories on display and were given the chance to cast their votes for the SM Shoppers’ Choice. Casting your vote gave you a chance to win @IGersmanila T-shirts and souvenirs. Performances by talented artists of @SoundCloudPH were also featured throughout the program. Keiko Sarmiento Necesario, Kian Dionisio, and the Hapiville Band graced the event with good music as #TheMods talked about the Instagramming workflow:

Carl Lozano (@cclozano in IG), fondly called Daddy C, talked about turning a photo into a visual story. He introduced some of the most used apps: Snapseed, VSCO, Phonto, and Studio. With the help of collaborators @ianaperalta, @nagaryan, @iamkebok, and @breinmars he also demonstrated how these apps are used to enhance photos and create stories to share.
Petim Maminta (@ipetim in IG) followed through with a discussion on the do’s and don’ts of sharing visual stories online. She shared tips on how to caption a photo to make it more interesting. She also listed the top hashtags to use to make your visual story more searchable and give it a better chance to inspire fellow IGers.
Ed Calaycay (@edcalaycay in IG) closed the discussion by sharing @IGersmanila’s projects and collaboration with different groups to bring IGers together and inspire them to keep sharing their visual stories. He also showed some of the #iCoss members’ feeds to encourage the audience to also #CreateShareInspire and help keep the good vibes rolling.
Stay tuned for more #CreateShareInspire sessions with #TheMods @cclozano @edcalaycay @ipetim and soon our collaborators #TheColl for our #LetsSpeakApp series. Check out our #ANNEXxIGERSMANILA Exhibit at the 4th Floor of SM City North EDSA Annex Cyberzone, which runs until 01 February 2015. Big thanks to our sponsor @SMNorthEDSA.

SM North EDSA was also generous enough to set up a photo printing corner and everyone who tagged their IG posts with #CreatShareInspire and #ANNEXxIGersManila had their photos printed out for free. The event was capped off with the awarding of winners. IGers @ivanborlongan, @raymondsagun, @breinmars @oneofthefewgood @paglaom @joanis135 won the SM Shopper’s Choice awards and received gift certificates and gift items courtesy of SM North EDSA.
