Hampton Photo Arts and Framing in Bridgehampton says February is Instagram Month!
The local photography and art supply store/frame shop is holding an Instagram photo contest throughout the month of February. To enter, Instagram users need only to tag their favorite photos with #HPAcontest. At the end of February, the Hampton Photo Arts staff will select a contest winner, who will receive a framed copy of their winning photo, as well as an “art swag bag with all sorts of fun goodies inside!”
Adding to the Instagram fun, Hampton Photo Arts is also running specials on printing and “Insta-framing” your best squared photos from the popular app, in sizes 5 x 5 inches, 8 x 8 inches or 12 x 12 inches. The shop sells Insta-frames nationwide, and can quickly bring images to life, moving them from your phone to your wall. What could be cooler than arranging 20 Insta-framed pics in your office or media room? Imagine the possibilities!
