Artistic Photo Selections of the Month
This will be a selection of individual photos (chosen by popular vote?, e.g., by "Pinoys@flickr"; and/or curated selections by the Likas-Philippines Arts & Photography Editorial Board). There will be categories: Scenery, Moods, Still Life, Filipino Children, Young People, Old People, Abstracts, etc.
Internet Art and Cartoons selections of the month
same rules as photo selections
Featured "Best Photo" Selector
This is the reverse of the other sections at the top. Here, an individual is chosen (maybe once a week, depending on the number of willing participants). (S)he has the task to select his(her) top photos (25 to 100) from around the world, excluding the Philippines this time and not from his(her) own work. The task will include asking the people for permission to have the photo (brief text of the photo and bio of photographer, if possible) for inclusion in the TOTI archives.
Rules: not more than one photo per person, not more than three per country and not more than five per category (Scenery, Moods, Still Life, Filipino Children, Young People, Old People, Abstracts, Nature and Wildlife). The next selector must try not to select the same set of people as the previous selectors.
The significance of this feature, in relation to the long-term goals of "One World", will be discuss in the future. [But, I would encourage the visitor to speculate why this very simple feature can have lasting impact, if each selector does his(her) job quite seriously and conscientiously, rather than just looking for the abstract "best photos".]
Explore if some Filipino groups or singers will do mp3 recordings of non-copyrighted Filipino songs, e.g., Ang Bayani (?), popular regional songs, or creations of lesser known Filipino musicians who want to publicize their work.

In the future, to encourage more widespread selections of photos from different provinces and regions of the Philippines, as well as instill Filipino pride, there will be a more publicized "photo-essay" contest.
[This will require sponsorship, to cover the prizes and other expenses.]
