Last week, we announced that for our fourth annual Photoville exhibition, Feature Shoot

is inviting our Instagram followers to curate the show. The theme is ‘Flora and Fauna,’ and submissions and votes have been rolling in. Each day, we will continue to post selected images to our Instagram feed, where you may cast your vote for your favorite images simply by “liking” it on Instagram. Submissions are due by July 17th, 2015, but voting will remain open until July 20th. The 20-25 images with the most “likes” will be exhibited on September 10th-20th at Photoville, New York City’s largest annual photo event. Here are our top five frontrunners so far, selected from more than 2,000 submissions and counting. A lot can change in eleven days, so be sure to submit and keep on voting.

Organized by United Photo Industries, Photoville is an event composed of more than sixty exhibitions, each installed in repurposed shipping containers.

There are 2 ways to submit:

Via email: Send up to 5 images at 620 px wide on the shortest side to [email protected] with ‘Flora and Fauna’ in the subject line. Please include your Instagram handle (if you have one) and any additional hashtags.

Via Instagram: After posting the images you’d like to submit to your own Instagram, please hashtag #featureshootshow to be considered. If we select your image, we will regram it on our Instagram feed for our followers to see and judge.

It is FREE to submit, however by doing so, you agree to our Terms and Conditions found here.

Any questions, please email us at [email protected].
