Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPicecream

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.

The goal this weekend is to take creative photos and videos featuring ice cream. Some tips to get you started:

  • For a gourmet look, artfully arrange your ice cream and find a spot with soft window light to stage your photo. Remember to work quickly or in a cold environment to get the shot before it melts.
  • Think about the simple joy ice cream can bring. Surprise someone with a scoop, start snapping portraits and don’t be afraid to get messy (especially with children).
  • Finally, try to think outside the cone. Experiment with unlikely uses of ice cream and what you can do with it both before and after it melts.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPicecream 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!
