Transform snapshots into visual art with #Filters (@IGersGallery on Instagram) is running a #Filters challenge this week, inspired by @IGersManila‘s very own #Filterrific theme. From today until Sunday 11-May-2014, our #9pmhabit is likewise focused on filters, for transforming snapshots into visual art!

Screen Shot 2014-05-08 at 10.07.24 AMAbout In January 2011, Phil Gonzalez launched a blog to help Instagram users get the most out of the Instagram app and maximize their experience. Today, is the largest network of Instagram’ers with more than 300 local communities in 60 different countries. After organizing meetups, promotional Instagram events and actively participating in the development of the app, the next step for Instagramers was clear: to promote the artistic work of the most creative users in the best way possible – by showcasing it to the entire world. Together with the designer and expert in social innovation Jorge Martinez, they came up with the idea of creating an open, democratic online gallery, devoid of the terms “followers” or “followed,” where people could access any image and users could share their talent with the world, displaying their work in a place where it can be appreciated and awarded solely on the quality and originality of their photos. December 2013 marks the birth of Instagramers Gallery, a massive showcase of Instagram images capable of presenting a worldview like none other: yours.

To join and qualify for the US$ 100,000 contest, please go to and follow @IGersGallery for updates. IGersManila Philippines is the official Philippine representative of the network of international Instagram communities.

So fellow Instagram’ers, let’s show the world what Filipino visual artistry is all about – snap, filter, and share visual stories that are creatively applied with a combination of edits and filters – then tell us what app/s, filter/s, effect/s you used. Tag your post/s to IGersManila and don’t forget to add #IGersManila #9pmhabit #IGersPhilippines #Filters #Filterrific to your photo caption so we can add your work to our collage and get the chance to be featured as a #PhotoPick.

Keep the good vibes rolling! #ktgvr
