Brunika´s team interview at ProjekBrunika.com
Projek Brunei website is known as the go-to place to rediscover Brunei Darussalam through the stories, music, photography and art of Bruneian locals and of people who have lived or worked there before. You can find a resume of their interview here or visit the full interview here.
Brunika´s Team is leaded by Instagram users @Amiranas, @Wandirajali, @Kurapak and @MrIguana
What is Brunika?
Brunika is Brunei’s Official Instagram Community. Other countries have their own official groups, for example Indonesia’s iPhonesia, Singapore’s InstaSG, France’s IgersFrance, etc. Officially there are over 140 Instagram groups (220 now really!) registered at Instagramers.com, a global community of Instagramers. Brunika was unofficially created on 13th May 2011 and was officially registered at Instagramers on 12th August 2011.
Since then, already over 20,000 photographs have been shared through the hash tag #Brunika on Instagram. Look for us on Instagram!
Who is behind Brunika?
@Kurapak, @Wandirajali, @Amiranas and @MrIguana. We have been friends for a long time, we love going on outings to different places and we especially love travelling to other countries. When we do, we take photographs using our iPhones. We then of course share them through Instagram. And oh, we still live in the same neighborhood here in Brunei!
Describe your photography styles in a few words.
@Kurapak is a ‘trippy traveller’, @Wandirajali is a black and white photography artist, @Amiranas is a master of high dynamic range (HDR) imagery and @MrIguana is a specialist in overcontrast-HDR. (see one of the Snap Shots by @MrIguana here below)
What is the purpose of Brunika?
Our aim is to unite fellow Bruneians through a photography community, to share knowledge and the art of photography via Instagram, and of course to put Brunei on the map. So far, we have hosted a “Photo of The Week” among our followers, we share information regarding new photo-editing tools, and in October 2011 we hosted an Instagramer challenge to the theme “Brunei Scenery” which was open to all residents of Brunei.
Any exciting projects coming up?
We plan to do an “Instawalk” (photography walk), a local Brunika iPhonegraphy Exhibition and other photography challenges soon. We also have great friendship with the iPhonesia Team and we are discussing the possibility of an ‘Instameet’ between our two countries either in Indonesia or Brunei next year. As for our future plans, we are planning to grow our brand through t-shirt and bumper sticker merchandising.
Look for us on Instagram and tag your Instagram photographs with “#brunika” to join the fun.
Let’s Instagram the World!
