After 10,000+ entries globally, including Bogata’s skyline, LA’s beaches, Barcelona’s architecture, Hong Kong’s night lights, Chicago’s public art and of course London’s various attractions through the Jubilee and heading into the Olympics, #InstagramYourCity has announced it’s city and overall winners.
The tough decisions came down to a judging panel of Dan Rubin, Columbian photographer Mauricio Velez, social media leader Todor Krecu, founder of Stickygram Kejia Zhu and Social Media Week’s founder Toby Daniels.
The winning image and all city finalists are included below.
The winning image was taken by Björn Köcher (@bjoekoe) and includes the words “The World is Too Small for Walls” written on a replica of a piece of the Berlin Wall. The judges felt that this image stood out for them, both as a reflection of the uniqueness of the city, but also as a powerful reminder that the global movement towards open and transparent communication has roots in historical events of the past.
