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 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
