On-goers will get to watch portfolio reviews, slideshows, and check out photozines. Industry leaders such as author and illustrator Alan Navarra, documentary photographer Nana Buxani, filmmaker Quark Henares, and painter Victor Balanon will give talks and workshops throughout the day.

Apart from that, there will be an exhibition that will showcase art works of over 250 photographers and image-based artists from all over the world.

“We have a huge number of Filipino photographers here and overseas but, unfortunately, we never had a festival dedicated to photography. MONOmania aims to somehow bridge this gap. The goal is to gather like-minded image-based artists, and to inspire and learn from one another,” said MONO founder Erin Noir.

Photographers are also invited to be part of the exhibition. How? Simply submit your best black and white photograph here and follow the instructions below:

  • Make sure the photo is taken by you.
  • Only analog and digital black and white photos will be considered.
  • There’s no theme, however, entries will be limited to a total of 200 images.

  • Photo must be 2000px long, 300dpi, and has a file size limit of 3MB
  • File name must be MONOMANIA_YourName.jpg
