Think you have (Instagram) photo skills? Prove it.
To celebrate our 10th birthday this month, we're challenging our most creative Instagram followers to incorporate RedEye into their visions of Chicago. And, in turn, we'll give the best five Insta-photographers their own prints of their images. Here's how the contest works:
-Take a photo of anything you'd like, as long as it incorporates RedEye in some way--it can be a glimpse of a newsstand, a newspaper, a keychain, anything. Make it be a photo of that you would be proud to hang in your living room, though. Get creative! (See the above photo of a newsstand for inspiration.)
-Upload it to Instagram.
-In the caption, include the following: Title of your photo, your name, your age, your neighborhood (or where it was taken), the #redeyegram hashtag and "@redeyechicago."
-Check for your photo on redeyechicago.com, where we will be posting all of the entries throughout the month.
-Contest ends Oct. 26. Winners will be chosen the following week.
-Five winners will each receive a 12"x12" print of their Instagram photo from CanvasPop.
-IMPORTANT THING: We'll need to be able to contact you if you win, so please keep an eye out for comments from us on your photo! We'll be asking for your email address.
