This weekend’s tag was #WHPGameOn, which asked participants to celebrate the beginning of the 2014 World Cup (@fifaworldcup) and cheer on their countries with creative and photos and videos. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPGameOn

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 week marks the beginning of the 2014 World Cup! To celebrate, the goal this weekend is to cheer on your country with creative photos and videos showing how you’re getting involved. Some tips to get you started:

  • Think about how you’re supporting your country’s team from home and get creative! Consider snapping a portrait with a mask or face paint, photographing your collection of team memorabilia or capturing the excitement of your friends and family watching the matches.
  • Are you an athlete yourself? Break out video and show some of your best moves. You can even try experimenting with slow-motion to make your kicks even more epic.
  • Finally, if you’re lucky enough to be on the ground at the World Cup in Brazil, seek out and capture unique perspectives and unexpected details from the stadium to the streets.

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPGameOn 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!
