Instagram is where creative and talented people come together and find the perfect platform for self expression.

Their common denominator?  They are people addicted to Instagram telling their stories about small portions of their lives through their pictures, revealing their passions and sharing their best Instagram tips.


Today we are happy to introduce you to Elika Podzimkova.  Elisa recently won best picture of the day during the 1,000$ a day Instagramers Gallery @igersgallery contest with this original creation right below.

She lives in Prague but dreams of New York and her pictures whimsically illustrates this interest!  Her ”trademark” if you will, is her ability to add eye-catching illustrations to photos and videos of the Big Apple.  People constantly send her photos so she can edit them!

Welcome to our Instagramers Blog Eliska, your work on New York city is both interesting and creative!  We are happy to show it off here on


My name is Eliska I am 21 year old animation student from Prague. Even if I live halfway across the world,  I constantly dream of New York city. My project AnimateNY on Instagram is based on my love for NYC. I spend my time adding crazy illustrations to photos taken by amazing NYC instagramers.


As many people before me I fell in love with NYC after spending my first summer there. Ever since that first visit, I try to go as much as I can, my dream is to one day move over to the Big Apple!

Thanks for your contribution to Focus On Eliska!
