In celebration of Wikipedia's tenth anniversary, Wikimedia Philippines (WMPH), the Philippine local chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation, is proud to host Wikipedia Takes Manila!

Wikipedia Takes Manila is a photo scavenger hunt following the tradition of Wikipedia Takes the City (, held in several cities throughout the world over the last few years. Wikipedia Takes Manila would be Southeast Asia's first Wikipedia photo scavenger hunt, with coverage of the City of Manila. Teams will go around Manila to take pictures of famous buildings, landmarks and other places according to a predetermined list, and pictures taken will have corresponding points. Due recognition may also be given to other pictures not on the list.

Wikipedia Takes Manila will be on Saturday, January 15 at Paco Park, San Marcelino St., Paco, Manila. Afterward, a party for contestants and guests will be held at Shakey's Pizza, Maria Orosa Ave. cor. United Nations Ave., Ermita, Manila. During the party, we will announce the best picture and the group that has taken the most pictures overall. Prizes await those who win in the competition!
