‘Say G’Day’ at SM North Edsa

As part of its year-long festivities marking seven decades of bilateral ties with the Philippines, the Australian Embassy held a Social Media Day during the launch of the “Celebrate Australia: Say G’Day” exhibition at The Block at SM City North EDSA.

The event hosted by Magic 89.9 DJ Nikko Ramos rocked with the presence of Australian DJ Callum David, who played music while students and bloggers took photos of the exhibit. The energy of the younger crowd and the use of technology reinforced how dynamic and vibrant Philippine and Australian relations continue to be over the years.

The highlight of the event was an online photo contest using the hashtag #First70Years. There were different categories – Best Dressed, Most Creative “Take Me to Australia” photo, Best Groufie and Best Aussie Photobooth. Australian Ambassador Amanda Gorley also selected the Ambassador’s Choice from the online photos.    

An exhibit on Aussie-Philippines relations and a fair featuring leading and emerging Australian brands in the Philippines were also held.
