Through the App you can select and upload your photo by clicking the “join the contest” button or participate directly through Instagram tagging your picture. You can participate with as many photos as you like.
First stage, the Contestgram jury
After the first week, the Contestgram jury will choose the five best photos, among all the uploaded pictures and @contestgram will publish these on its Instagram profile. The Constestgram jury consists of: 2 professional photographers, 2 amateur photographers and 1 judge.
Second stage, you can vote!
Now it’s time for the Instagramers to vote! During a week, Instagramers can vote for their favourite photos among the ones published by @contestgram. Either trough the App or directly through Instagram. At the end of the vote period, the photo with the most likes wins!
