Last month on the blog we asked you to send us your best Instagram shots, for a forthcoming feature in our print magazine. Our Novermber issue is out now, and we can reveal the images we chose to publish in the mag.

Above you can see a spread from November’s Instant Gratification feature, questioning where the future lies for the world’s most popular image app, and featuring our selection of your Instagram images.
