Yes, you can!

You can use the platform to host and manage your own challenge! Just login, go to the dashboard page and create your challenge by setting up its parameters, such as topic, hashtag, rules, start- and enddate, etc.
You constantly have full control and information about the progress.

We already tested the system with a couple of successful challenges (see list). In addition, the whole website is accessible with an iPhone.

Using InstaChallenge has many advantages against pure tagging:

  • All participiants confirm that they agree with your rules; they login with their Instagram account, so you can be sure that they are authorized.
  • Only those pictures count that were registered on the website. There is no upload; pictures are selected from the stream using the Instagram-API.
  • You can invite a Jury to help you with the voting. This also makes the whole process more transparent and professional.
  • There is only one central place for submitting, editing and for viewing the results.
  • I’m working on an additional option that automatically generated photobooks from the results of the challenge.

And of course, it’s free!

  1. Just wanted to let you know that I think your site is great, the only small issues I had were: one of the photos didn’t show up when I was judging the Powerlines challenge, & I found it really difficult to figure out how to log in or what to do. There seems to be no login button?? The only way I was able to log in was randomly pressing menu items and finding that when I clicked Dashboard it said “you have to log in first” and only then did I find a place where I was able to select “Login”. Might want to have an obvious Login button on the navigation bar at the top of the site? And perhaps make it a little clearer where you are supposed to go as a jury member, so people don’t have to use the trial & error method. Thanks very much! I hope to host my own challenge soon :)
