Forget arty shots of bacon sandwiches, or Yet. Another. Sunset. Because Instagram is going high fashion and now theres an award to prove it. The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has announced the first ever Fashion Instagrammer of the Year prize, which will be part of the prestigious CFDA Awards on 2 June.
The winner will be selected from a group of eight nominees namely @aguynamedpatrick, @amy_stone, @bessnyc4, @dapperlou, @donalddrawbertson, @hokaytokay, @paridust, and @troprouge who were chosen by the CFDA committee of industry insiders. But in true social-media style, itll be us, the followers, who get to decide the winner. The Instagrammer who gets the most likes for pictures tagged #MyCFDA will scoop the accolade, with the results announced on 30 May.
While they wont appear on stage at the ceremony (no teary Id like to thank God and my iPhone 5 camera speeches, sadly), the winner will get to take over the CFDA account for the evening as their official Instagram correspondent.
Check out the nominees now via cfda.com/instagrammer-of-the-year. We guarantee youll be inspired.
