Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmamatoldme

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 post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

In honor of Mother’s Day in many parts of the world this past Sunday, this weekend’s tag was #WHPmamatoldme, which asked participants to share a creative photo or video representing the best piece of motherly advice they’d ever received. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmamatoldme

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 post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

In honor of Mother’s Day on Sunday, the goal this weekend is to share a creative photo or video that represents the best piece of motherly advice you’ve ever received. Some tips to get you started:

  • For a photo, you can experiment with staging a scene that best illustrates that motherly advice, whether it’s as concrete as sharing a video of a household cleaning trick or abstract as a photo of a symbol from a major life decision.
  • Sometimes faces tell the best stories. Don’t be afraid to share a portrait of your mom or the mother figure in your life and share their advice in your caption.

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