World Photo Day Contest Winners

World Photo Day Contest Winners

World Photo Day Contest Winners . Why do you shoot? @igersrio asked that basic question on August 19th, World Photo Day. . The idea was very creative and simple: what about celebrating photography showing & telling Igers why we take pictures? The Best photos & answers posted on that day only and tagged with #igersrio_worldphotoday would get a shoot out and prints by partner @sambapix Then the idea got a little bigger – why not activate the whole Instagramers network and make world photo day a worldwide celebration? The deadline was short – only 3 days – and 22 Igers local groups joined the challenge under the global tag #igers_worldphotoday @igers @igersabudhabi @igersbari @igersbsb @igerscanada @igerscentralcoastnsw @igerscentraloregon @igerscolombia @igerseastbay @igerslpa @igersmallorca @igersmalmoe @igersmexico @igerspoa @igersportugal @igerspty @igerssacramento @igerssantacatarina @igerssaopaulo @igerssv @igerstoulouse @igers_philly and @instagramaz .

FocusOn Instagramers 1.43: @Grether . Each week, Instagramers.com discovers new people. People addicted to Instagram, revealing their lives, passions, and favorite tips in Instagram.  Today we feature @Grether . @Grether is definitely one of those “Instagram community evangilizers” who detected, in the real first Instagram’s steps, a certain need of community. It was probably the first man who set an #Igers community in U.S and started with a local group in Portland. And one day, our paths finally crossed! I think he really deserved to be feature here this week! . His name is Morgan Stone Grether… . …But we know him as @Grether. Morgan is Instagram user nº 173.736. That means he´s started his is in under the first 0,5% of users who downloaded the app. His bio on instagram is “Musician – Nice Person – Lunatic — in beautiful Portland, Oregon, USA” and he thinks that covers it pretty well. To that he would add he is a lifelong learner, forever pushing himself to learn new things, to move beyond his comfort zone. “One facet of that is getting out and meeting new people, exploring new perspectives” he says. “That to me is one of the greatest things about Instagram: that ability to converse with people from across the globe (as well as your very own hometown). Just beautiful. And I have worked to build a sense of community among Portland’s Instagram users, and I would love to help other people do it in their hometowns too”. @Grether is a great human guy. If you don´t know him already, he is an Iger you should probably know. Thank you for graciously accepting to answer our weekly interview! You can see his Gallery...
