NYC Wants Your #LoveNYC Instagram Photos

August 7, 2013 | Andy Cush

For the second year running, the city government will host its #LoveNYC photography contest, which challenges users to post their best New York photos, adorned with the titular hashtag, for a chance at guest-running the city’s official Instagram account (Did you even know the city had an official Instagram account? We didn’t).

Photos can be posted to Instagram, Twitter, and –new this year, thanks to hashtags–Facebook.

Are you a good photographer with an eye for scenes that are actually compelling, and, dare I ask, maybe even a little unique? Get in on this, if only to stave off the inevitable flood of sun-dappled, Toaster-filtered shots of the view from the Brooklyn Bridge.
