The number “8” is considered a perfectly balanced symbol. When laid sideways, it turns into the infinity sign. Its meaning to different cultures is just that—infinite. It can represent prosperity or wealth, but some also perceive it as an unlucky number. It means resurrection for others and destruction for some. Eight represents enlightenment, perfection, a day of rest or rock-and-rollin’ love.This August 8, 2008 (08.08.08), let us explore the infinite meaning of the number 8 as Flickr Group Philippines, invites the Filipino Flickristas to 88 on 08.08.08.
Hobbyists and professionals alike who are members of the Flickr Group Philipines are called to show interpretations of the number “8”. The first 88 pictures to be posted automatically become part of a photo exhibit on Sept. 15-21*. Out of the 88 photos, eight will be adjudged winners. Great prizes and Flickr pro accounts are up for grabs!
After months of brainstorming from the organizers, the exhibit will be held this October 15-18, 2008 at Trinoma Mall, Cinema Lobby, Level 4 and the awarding ceremony will be on October 18, 2008 at exactly 6 pm.
To Flickr Group Philippines, good luck and congratulations! A big thank you as well to all the sponsors of this event. Cheers to all!
