Photograph Your Way Around the World
Posted: Wednesday 02 May, 2012
Social Media Week is using mobile-based photo apps, such as Instagram and Hipstamatic, to showcase the cities hosting the conference in September. In addition to highlighting these cities, participants who submit photos with these apps will have the chance to win a trip to the Social Media Week destination of their choice: London, Glasgow, Torino, Barcelona, Berlin, Doha, Jeddah, Hong Kong, Seoul, São Paulo, Bogotá, Chicago, Los Angeles or Vancouver.
According to the Social Media Week website, here are the simple steps to enter this competition:
1. Take a picture:
Using any smartphone device, take a photo that captures the uniqueness and heart of one of the 14 host cities for Social Media Week September.
2. Add a filter:
Using Instagram, or other filter apps such as Hipstamatic, make your photo stand out.
3. Tag & Share:
Using #InstagramYourCity, share on Twitter and Facebook with the city you’re capturing. For example, “Just submitted my entry to @SocialMediaWeek’s #InstagramYourCity for Berlin!” There's no limit to the number of entries you can submit, so get creative!
To highlight the ‘Instagram Your City’ campaign, Social Media Week is also launching a dedicated website which will feature the top 14 images submitted by users. The best photo will be chosen from those 14 and the winner will get to travel to any of the cities hosting Social Media Week.
Even if you don’t live in one of the host cities, will you ‘Instagram Your City’?
