The global celebration begins: Social Media Week invites you to Instagram your city

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

Is there a more beautiful downtown than #Chicago? #InstagramYourCity

To help celebrate Social Media Week, organizers Crowdcentric, are asking people to Instagram Your City. Starting this week, anyone can upload  photographs that capture the uniqueness of each of the participating cities–Barcelona, Berlin, Bogota, Chicago, Doha, Glasgow, Hong Kong, Jeddah, London, Los Angeles, Torino, São Paulo, Seoul and Vancouver. Tag that photo with #InstagramYourCity, and be entered to win a trip to any Social Media Week city of your choosing during the September 24-28 event.

It’s easy to enter:

  • Take a photo with your smartphone that captures the uniqueness of Chicago, or any other of the 14 host cities, and submit it after adding a filter with an app like Instagram, Lightbox, StreamZoo or Hipstamatic
  • Tag the photo using #InstagramYourCity along with the name of your city.
  • Share your photo on Twitter. Your Tweet might look something like this: @SocialMediaWeek’s #InstagramYourCity for #Chicago. Keep the Chicago conversation going by including @smwchicago or #smwchicago as well.
