They have never met each other but they are bound to share one amazing journey around the world. They are just four of the twenty Filipinos in Lagalag, sharing one thing in common – they all take pictures.

One destination. Your doorstep.

Want a badge for your profile? PICK ONE HERE.
1. Who can join? Filipinos with photos on Flickr.
2. Your main photo and story should contribute to the vision of the project, which is to put into one notebook the different ways Filipinos see themselves, the world and their homeland.
3. You are allowed two spreads, a total of four pages.
4. Use the first blank page available. Do not skip pages. Do not leave marks on the pages preceding yours.
5. You’re free to design the layout of your page and include drawings or collage if you wish (you may visit the moleskinerie group on Flickr for ideas). But do not put your mailing address anywhere in the notebook.
6. Needless to say, the notebook should be handled with care. Avoid excessive gluing and inks that could leave marks on the succeeding pages.
7. Once you’re done, take a picture of your page and post in on LAGALAG’s Flickr group at www.flickr.com/groups/lagalag.
8. The maximum period you’re allowed to keep the notebook is a week and then you will have to let it go.
9. Mailing to destinations outside the Philippines should make use of postal delivery services with a reliable tracking system (UPS, FedEx, DHL etc). Email the tracking number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
10. You cannot mail it to the next predetermined destination without getting public confirmation from the receiver (thru the Flickr group) that he or she will be around to receive it and ready work on it.
11. Should we fail to get a confirmation, the notebook will be mailed to either the next destination in line or a new destination.
12. By agreeing to be a part of the journey, we assume that you agree that you’re allowing us to have your page exhibited in public through various media – Internet, broadcast, galleries, print.
13. Keep the discussion posts related to the Lagalag Project.
This is a public group.
