Announcing #InstagramCannes and La Galerie d’Instagram

In June, thousands of creatives from all over the world will descend on the French Riviera for The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, an annual, global gathering that honors the best work in advertising and visual communications from the past year.

Both Instagram and Cannes Lions celebrate the world’s best visual imagery. The Instagram for Business team is planning to bring that connection to life at the festival with La Galerie d’Instagram, a gallery space showcasing a small collection of photos representing the stunning, original work we see in the Instagram community each and every day.

It would be impossible to reproduce every breathtaking portrait, moody landscape, or perfectly balanced still life on Instagram that we find inspiring. But hard as it may be, we’re going to choose some of our favorites and exhibit them at an exclusive gallery space, located at Gare Maritime Promenade Pantiero 06400 Cannes, for festival-goers to enjoy.

Here’s where we need your help: Between now and June 13, add the #InstagramCannes hashtag to up to three of your best photos. We’re only accepting the first three submissions per person, so choose wisely.

We’ll select three winners based on the originality, technical execution, and subject matter of submissions. In addition to having their #InstagramCannes photos featured in the gallery and announced on the Instagram for Business blog, each winner will receive a Leica C camera and travel kit, courtesy of Leica and Herschel Supply.

The #InstagramCannes contest is open to everyone in the community, including brands. Winners will be notified on June 15, the first day of the festival. Bonne chance!
