Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPnotquitea

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.

This weekend’s tag was #WHPnotquitea, which asked participants to take photos or videos in the style of their favorite Instagrammers. Can you guess who inspired them? Visit their profiles to see their captions and find out!

Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPnotquitea

This weekend, Instagram celebrates its third birthday! We wouldn’t be where we are today if we weren’t made up of a community as creative and strong as all of you. To mark the occasion, we want to share the love by having you share who you love to follow.

The goal this weekend is to take photos or videos in the styles of your favorite Instagrammers. Some tips to get you started: Look through your favorite Instagrammers’ profiles and try to figure out what it is you love about their photos or videos. Once you’ve got an idea of it, try to take your own photo in that style, but don’t be afraid to put your own spin on things. Finally, be sure to call them out in your post right after the hashtag! (Example: #WHPnotquitea @username).

Above, you’ll see our own attempts at taking #WHPnotquitea photos around the office in the style of Instagrammers we’ve featured in the past. You can also get an idea for this project by looking at these two photos by @servoss (left side) that was inspired by the style of London Instagrammer @missunderground (right side).

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