Less Malls, More Moments: Instagram Contest by @moment

Over the last several months, we’ve seen an incredible response to #MakeYourWorldBigger. We’ve found that no two ideas of this are alike. We’ve seen colossal temples in Cambodia, running of the bulls in Spain, and stunning shots of an orphanage in Kenya. These images awed and inspired us.

We also learned that it’s not just the adventure shots or the global landmarks that captured our attention, but that many inspiring shots were more local– more community driven. They reminded us that photography is not just about the technical quality of the photo, but the acknowledgement that life is better with shared experiences.

That is why, with the holidays approaching, we’ve decided to host a contest that focuses on “gathering.” It’s easy to get swept up in a season of shopping, expectations and gift giving, but we want to encourage you to capture the community and the people in your life. To appreciate the depth of your relationship and how photography brings us closer together.

This contest is not about stuff, it’s about people, and our communities. In keeping with this sentiment, we’re offering one grand prize winner a $1,000 donation to the charity of their choice.

Contest Rules
