Photography Contest

This year, ManikaManila will be going through some changes.

ManikaManila was founded in 2005, and the community has grown and evolved since then.

Change is exciting and inevitable. This year, to align with the direction that our community is going in and as a reference to our venue’s name, we’re happy to announce the theme for the #mmtiangge2017 Photo Contest:

NEW VENTURES

What new ventures will you and/or your dolls be pursuing together? Are you graduating from college, entering a new job or changing careers? Are you looking forward to adding a new member to your crew, selling a doll to reshell a character, or is your story going in a direction that you never expected it to go in the first place? If you’ve got nothing that drastic in mind, it can be as simple as getting a new hair color, or learning a new skill.

Show us your new ventures in the form of a photo at #mmtiangge2017 and we’ll show you ours then as well.

So, what does your future hold?
