Just a heads up, this is for the Make It Makati Photo Contest. It’s a once-in-a-blue-moon event wherein photographers are allowed to shoot to their hearts desire in specific locations in Makati. Take note, the permit is for specific areas in the Makati Business District which I mentioned in my earlier post.
If you really wanted to shoot in Makati (yes, even with a tripod and full-shooting gears, umbrella and all), grab this rare opportunity because we’ll never know when they are going to issue another Permit-To-Shoot.
- Register at the Make It Makati Website. An email confirmation will be sent to you.
- Once you receive the email confirmation (you need to print it as well), it will provide the link on where to download the ID (which you must print) as well as the other paper works. Download these and make sure that whatever name you put on the ID is the same as the name in your registration form. You may download also the map to guide you on the specific designations in Makati where you can shoot
- Gora na sa Makati and shoot! Wag na magpa-tumpik-tumpik, wag na magpa-delay-delay. Pagkatanggap mo ng permit, shoot na agad! (Go to Makati and shoot. Don’t hesitate, don’t delay. Once you receive the permit, go out and shoot!)
The ID that they will provide in the email is blank. You can edit it and put your name in it before you print it. I printed mine on a 3R size photo paper. Here’s my ID:
I got my Canon lace from the Canon PhotoMarathon in Villa Escudero
I’m not certain yet on how to secure a permit-to-shoot in Makati on a regular season (without a contest). But why wait for the regular season when the Make It Makati Photo Contest is extended the permit until August 14, 2012? I’m inviting all members of the Facebook Group Bawal Mag-Shoot Dito, now is your opportunity to shoot all you want.
Wag ka mag-inarte at mag-boycott-boycott. Gora na and shoot! (Don’t be a drama queen and continue with your boycott. Go out and shoot!)
