Mabuhay Pilipinas!

Today we commemorate the Philippine Declaration of Independence on 12-June-1898. While it’s a national holiday and most of us have no work (probably vacationing or staycationing), let’s not forget we’re celebrating 115 years of independence from Spanish colonial rule, that pave way to the many freedoms we Filipinos are enjoying at present.

Join us tonight at 9:00PM (PHT) as IGersManila continue its week-long celebration of our sovereign Filipino culture, beliefs, culture, and arts on Instagram with #IGersManila #9pmhabit #MabuhayPilipinas by sharing visual stories that highlight Philippine national colors of red, yellow, blue and white. Cheers to freedom and keep the good vibes rolling!

#IGYourVote is IGersManila’s social campaign

We’ve been running a special phoneography project – #IGYourVote – a social campaign for IGersManila, which we started last April as a daily noontime habit, a collaboration advocacy with @KandidatoAnongPlanoMo, with which we ask fellow Filipino Instagram’ers to share in Instagram their visual stories that raise issues we think this year’s electoral candidates must address.

Photos picked for this special project will get the chance to be featured in a campaign ad, which will be revealed soon. And starting this Sunday 05-May-2013, we’re doing #IGYourVote as a #9pmhabit, until the election day. So share your visual stories on hunger, disasters, the environment, among other issues.
