The Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation (FPPF) held their 25th Anniversary Celebration last Saturday, October 20, 2012 at the Fort Santiago grounds, Intramuros, Manila.
FPPF is a non-profit organization founded in 1987 to promote cooperation among photography associations in the country. Today, the FPPF is composed of several photography clubs all over the country.
The celebration started with a Fun Run around Fort Santiago but I arrived at the event around 10AM in time for the Cosplay Competition conducted by Canon.
There was also a workshop conducted by Ricky Ladia regarding the latest technology in strobist photography (using flash). They also had a photo-contest about wedding photography and the winner, Celso, was announced around 7PM. He won a Nikon D3200 DSLR.
Other activities include games in the afternoon like Photo Henyo, Photo Charade, Photo Quiz Bee and Photo Pick-Up Lines. There was also an auction of cameras.
The event was also jam-packed with Sponsors including Photozuela, Canon Philippines, Nikon Philippines, Sony Alpha DSLR, Samsung Cameras, Sandisk Philippines, Crumpler Philippines, Eneloop, Transcend, Tenba, PerfectShot, Phottix, BenQ Philippines, Rollei, CameraHaus, Colent, The Book, Intramuros Administration, among others.
FPPF also provided us with the latest issue of Frame One, the official publication. I enjoyed the FPPF Anniversary Celebration since I was able to bond with the members of our photography group. See you again guys next year for the 26th Anniversary Celebration of FPPF!
I wish I have zoom lenses like these
