Be There Without Being There
Can’t make it to the SAA Aviation Museum? Canon South Africa encourages everyone with a love of photography and a passion for Mzansi to plan their own Instameets on World Photography Day and get clicking. “Connect with people who are passionate about taking pictures; round up your friends and family and explore the beauty our amazing country has to offer. There are no rules for an Instameet, neither a minimum total of attendees required. Just round up as many people as you can and flex some creative muscle,” says Michelle Janse van Vuuren, Marketing Director of Canon South Africa.
Make sure to share your experience with Canon South Africa via social media by tagging Canon and including the hashtag #ExploreWithCanon. Canon South Africa might send a representative to join your event and/or send you a prize and some Canon goodies to distribute at your next Instameet. Other hashtags to use include #ExploreZA and #LiveForTheStory.
There will be five photographic tasks to complete on the day. These will be shared with Instameeters at the event, as well as on social media. Make sure to follow Canon South Africa’s social media pages as each task will be available to view. Should fans not be able to attend the Instameet, they are still able to enter the competition via Canon’s social media pages.
Participants will have until the following Wednesday, 22 August 2018 to upload their photos, using the hashtag #ExplorewithCanon and the task-specific hashtag. One winner per task will be selected to win a Canon EOSM100 mirrorless camera. There are also other fantastic prizes to be won from Canon South Africa for photographers and Instameeters showcasing their pictures from the event.
