Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why is Graphika Manila happening so early this year?

    After Graphika Manila 2012, it was clear to us that the event can happen on a better month. After much consideration, we decided to move the event to the first quarter of the calendar year for the years to come, hence the early schedule this year. We believe this period will suit GM much better in all aspect of the event namely: Weather, speaker availability and student schedule.

  • I'm not a designer or artist, can I still attend Graphika Manila?

    YES! By all means. If you are creative at heart, passionate about design or are one who appreciates the arts, you are very welcome to attend Graphika Manila.

  • I'm a designer, what is the best way to support Graphika Manila?

    One of the best ways to support Graphika Manila is to actually purchase a ticket and attend the event. Your purchase will go a long way to help Graphika Manila become better in many ways.

    Credit card payments are accepted via our online store. Our ticket partners only accept cash and company check payments.

Graphika Manila is the biggest creative gathering in the Philippines, with close to 3000 attendees every year.

Graphika Manila is the premiere multimedia and graphic design event in the Philippines. Since 2006, Graphika Manila has attracted over 16,000 design students and professionals and is now hailed as one of the most influential multimedia events in the country.

As it celebrates its ninth year running, Graphika Manila once more brings together Manila’s creative minds to listen to inspiring stories and celebrate the works of the best multimedia and graphic designers from the Philippines and from around the globe.
