Roundup of Worldwide InstaMeet 10

Did you participate in Worldwide InstaMeet 10 this weekend? We want to hear about it! Tell us more via our InstaMeets form.

In celebration of the fourth year of Instagram’s community, the 10th Worldwide InstaMeet (#WWIM10) took place this weekend and was by far the most ambitious InstaMeet to date!

In hundreds of cities around the world, from Istanbul to Delhi, from Paris to Pretoria, thousands of Instagrammers gathered together to make photos and videos, and connect around a shared passion for capturing the world’s moments.

Many communities got especially creative with their group shots, such as Borneo, Edinburgh and Tokyo. Thank you all for making the Instagram community such an extraordinary place full of imaginative, dedicated and compassionate individuals who inspire us everyday!

Here is a sampling of some of the InstaMeets from this weekend that caught our eye:

Here are some tips from Russia InstaMeet participant Dmitry Morugov (@dimikangaroo): “Come to the InstaMeet with a positive mood, create some ideas for photos in advance, and try to realize your ideas with others.
