WHAT IS #BiGFEST2015?
Bicol Instagram Festival (#BiGFest2015) aimed to gather the most savvy social media and mobile internet users in Bicol Region for the first ever Instagram Meet- up during the Penafrancia Festival here in Naga City
It was a fun day filled with games and interaction with instagrammers, digital influencers and bloggers.
#BiGFest2015 was intended for all Bicolano youth and young professionals to visually share the best of Penafrancia Festival, Metro Naga and Bicol Tourism on their social media accounts particularly on Instagram during the whole month of September.
The persons behind BicolBloggers are also the organizers of various interactive activities like Date in Daet, SSSstaycation, Tumblr Meet-ups and other online advocacies. To date, #BiGFest2015 is our boldest and biggest activity for the most active netizens in Bicol.
