Greetings Boston! We are thrilled to announce a very special collaboration with @BosBRT to host a first of its kind event in the US! An Instameet contest in which we will tour the city in a public transportation bus. The theme is Beauty and the Bus.
BostonBRT is a research and community engagement initiative to explore the potential of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Boston. This instameet/contest is an extension of the Beauty and the Bus contest, conceived as a fun way to raise awareness by encouraging commuters to take creative photographs or video, capturing beautiful moments to spark a positive conversation about bus transit and how it might be improved by implementing Bus Rapid Transit. You can learn more about it here http://www.bostonbrt.org/beauty-and-the-bus
This event on Saturday June 24th is exclusively for our IGersBoston community and we will be selecting a limited number of participants to join us on this unique experience. A contest for the best image from the event will take place among participants. 3 Finalists will be selected and posted for a 24 hour public vote in which our 90K+ audience on Instagram will get to decide with their likes the contest winner. @BosBRT will provide the grand prize to the contest winner; a brand new DJI Mavic Pro photo/video drone! Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to join us on this fun event and capture the beautiful sights of our beloved city in the great company of fellow IGersBoston community photographers!
