We love a good photo. Off the heels of our InstagramYourCity competition, we were thrilled to see so many events focusing on the rise of Instagram, photography and user-submitted images. And we have more opportunities for you to grab your smartphone camera and snap away!

If you’re in Glasgow, make sure you participate in Your Public Art. We want to see photos of your favorite art- and your images will be displayed by the Gallery of Modern Art all week during SMW12!

For those in Jeddah, Social Media Week Jeddah is launching the #CaptureSaudi contest to celebrate the first Social Media Week in KSA! The Top 3 submissions representing Saudi from your perspective will be awarded with the new Nokia Lumia 900 Windows phone. Learn how you can submit– but get your submission in before September 20th!

Many of our photo-based events are already sold out- and we don’t you miss out on what’s in store below, ranging from more competitions to how user-based photography impacts your business. Register today through our site or download our app to get it on the go!
