#WWIM13PH in review

On the Earth Day weekend, @IGersManila Philippines joined the instragram’ing communities around the world for @Instagram’s #LifeOnEarthWWIM13.

Coinciding with the 5th Founding Anniversary celebration of @IGersManila #JiveForFive, the community trooped to La Mesa Ecopark in Quezon City for an early ecowalk on Saturday, 23-April, 2016.

Using the concept of the “Four Elements of Nature,” IGers attending the ecowalk were given a GREEN card and bag containing instructions for 3 sets of tasks  related to an element assigned to their theme. The scorching summer heat didn’t stop IGers in creatively snapshooting visual stories at the Ecopark given the limited time.

5th Instagram Worldwide Instameet and 10th Philippine Manila Instameet

26 July 2012 was a weekday (a regular workday) but @IGersManila didn’t pass up joining the 5th Instagram Worldwide Instameet (and consequently the 10th Philippine Manila Instameet). Ignoring the gloomy sky and the soft drizzle, together with attending Pinoy IGers, @IGersManila went on a biking fun and outdoorsy photo escapade of sorts at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City.

BIG THANKS to @masterxiao @aadooboo @ianskiee (with Jai) @reyjohnino @thatonesnap @lkarll_tsp @dearjohn26_pf (with Charm) @akosipepo_pf @jaimejim @iammoony @bryantotz @jomarxjocson @akosiemo_pf @jamescadavillo @meandmysummersky @itsreignewhenbored, with #TheMods @edcalaycay and @cclozano. Above is the collage of @IGersManila’s signature mugshots of Instameet attendees.

Levitation of the early birds at the Quezon Memorial Circle on magic hour – an Instameet is never complete without the customary jump shot.

IGers enjoying an easy round of “Stick it to P and T” game – a play on anatomy and names. They all won @IGersManila memorabilia.

Bicycling and mobile photography – of turning the wheels and snapping creatively.

Riding and posing – emotive, unique while keeping it balanced.

Biking and the always fun “Porky Adobo” activity – everyone’s sweaty after, even under the rain.

The winners @aadooboo @jomarxjocson @dearjohn26_pf, their winning entries, and their prizes. Special thanks to our sponsors @ianskiee and @picksurepicksure for the mobile photography lenses, @carltrav for the iTunes gift cards, and @IGersManila #TheMods @cclozano @edcalaycay @ipetim @pinkipop27 for the giveaways.

THANK YOU for making the 5th Instagram Worldwide Instameet and 10th Philippine Manila Instameet a success. Mabuhay Pinoy IGers!
