Events

As a thematic community based in the Philippines, the Pilipinas Panorama Community equally organizes meetups and events and participates in events organized by other Wikimedia-related communities, to share the advocacies and works of the organization.

Free the Freedom of Panorama in ESEAP


Johnny Alegre (Buszmail), founding head (emeritus) of the Pilipinas Panorama Community, presented concepts of PPC's flagship advocacy, Freedom of Panorama, at the ESEAP Conference 2024 in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.

In Wikimania 2023, a similar lightning talk about the Freedom of Panorama (FoP) in the Philippines was discussed. In this event, the focus was given to the Wikimedia region of ESEAP as a matter of awareness and promotion. Within the region, there are only 3 countries with full FoP: Australia, China and Malaysia. The discussion was described to become a tool for communities to get together for more such freedom advocacies. The regional community still needs further knowledge regarding the legislative backgrounds of every ESEAP country, and more ideas to lobby for FoP in their respective parliaments.

A Survey of Freedom Of Panorama (FOP) in the Philippines


Johnny Alegre (Buszmail), head of the Pilipinas Panorama Community, presented a capsule overview of PPC's flagship advocacy, Freedom of Panorama, before the diverse audience attending Wikimania 2023 in Singapore.

Freedom of Panorama is a little-known yet important legal right; for photographers, netizens, and content creators to freely capture and share public works of art and architecture found in or seen from public spaces, usually installed on a permanent basis. FOP serves to benefit Wikimedia's readership by acting as a freely accessible adjunct to information on all branches of knowledge. In the context of FOP in the Philippines, it is still a legislative work in progress. The reportorial on the subject will be of interest to Wikimedians in ESEAP, and perhaps the global audience.
