Saturday night was Art Walk in Wynwood and the Design District. As regular Beached Miami readers know, we usually shoot a photo essay of the monthly event. This time around we tried something different, and we’re happy to say it rocked the casbah. The Insta Art Walk Challenge asked participants to share photos from Art Walk via Instagram and/or Twitter in an attempt to capture the raucous gathering through the collective eye and lens of Miami. All told, about 40 people shared more than 260 photos (prize winners announced below gallery). Below you will find 44 #instawalk305 photos, at least one from each of the participants. You can hover over the thumbnails for photo credits and click them to see the photos in full size. To see all 260+ photos from the challenge, visit the Beached Miami Facebook page.
Before we get to the prize winners, we are excited to announce a new Beached Miami project: Instapix, a continually updated gallery of photos taken of Miami by Miami photographers — amateurs and pros alike. To view the Instapix gallery and learn how you can participate, visit beachedmiami.com/instapix.
With so many great photos and photographers in the mix, selecting the winners was not an easy task. We are immensely grateful to all the Insta Art Walk Challenge particpants, and we wish we had a prize for all of you. That said, here’s who’s taking home the goods.
