Your best Instagram shot

Our November issue includes a feature about the future of online photo-sharing service Instagram. To help us illustrate the piece, we'd like to feature great images taken by Creative Review readers using Instagram.

Earlier this year Facebook paid $1 billion to buy Instagram, despite the fact that Instagram doesn't currently turn a profit. In the wake of that purchase, Holler's executive creative director Will Pyne has written a feature for our November issue examining what the future holds for the service.

Now we get to the part you can help with. We want you to send us your best Instagram shot, using Twitter, and we'll publish our favourites alongside the feature, in the November issue of our magazine. To send us your photos, tweet them at @creativereview, and include the hashtag #bestinstagramshot. We'll choose our favourite ones to publish in the magazine.


CR for the iPad
Read in-depth features and analysis plus exclusive iPad-only content in the Creative Review iPad App. Longer, more in-depth features than we run on the blog, portfolios of great, full-screen images and hi-res video. If the blog is about news, comment and debate, the iPad is about inspiration, viewing and reading. As well as providing exclusive, iPad-only content, the app will also update with new content throughout each month. Try a free sample issue here

CR in Print
In our October print issue we have a major feature on the rise of Riso printing, celebrate the art of signwriting, examine the credentials of 'Goodvertising' and look back at the birth of D&AD. Rebecca Lynch reviews the Book of Books, a survey of 500 years of book design, Jeremy Leslie explains how the daily London 2012 magazine delivered all the news and stories of the Games and Michael Evamy explores website, offering "data-driven insights into logo design". In addition to the issue this month, subscribers will receive a special 36-page supplement sponsored by Tag celebrating D&AD's 50th with details of all those honoured with Lifetime Achievement awards plus pieces on this year's Black Pencil and President's Award-winners Derek Birdsall and Dan Wieden. And subscribers also receive Monograph which this month features Rian Hughes' photographs of the unique lettering and illustration styles of British fairgrounds

Is that burger from The Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green by any chance?

Tasty burger.

Such a shame that users can use photos taken on a DSLR camera, and then import them to instagram. When I first downloaded Instagram, I was under the impression it was for photos taken on the camera phone only - if only this CreativeReview article supported the Smart Phone age, and only published Smart Phone Instagram snaps...

Agree with Kate Powell, sent mine in as @stephenwray2, didn't see it featured. Gutted,
as it was a blinder. Looking forward to the new issue though!
