Today marks the 9th anniversary of the country’s premiere photography magazine – Digital Photographer Philippines (DPP). It’s celebrated at 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig – particularly, the 9th Avenue portion of Bonifacio High Street.
It’s the usual thing – booths by sponsors (like Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony, etc), photography talks, and model shoot. The thing that surprised me today was Panasonic’s boxing ring, Nikon’s street dancers, drone demo, and Sony’s bikers.
Ironically, DPP has no booth – no copies of DPP magazine being sold, past and current issues. Here are the pictures of today’s DPP anniversary.
Participants lined up at the sponsor’s booth for the stamp. Completely stamped “passport” entitles participants to the raffle.
Canon came up with a Selphy promo.
