This Weekend’s Hashtag Project: #WHPaquarium

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a photo announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

In honor of World Oceans Day tomorrow, the goal this weekend is to capture photos of your favorite underwater creatures, whether they’re the stars of your city’s aquarium or your own fish tank friends. Some tips to get you started: hold your phone against the glass and turn off flash to prevent reflections and glare; at the aquarium, jellyfish, turtles and fish take their own sweet time, so be patient and keep snapping; and keep an eye out—aquariums tend to be great places for silhouettes.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPaquarium hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
