Canon Instameet record attempt a huge success!
No less than 351 photographers flocked to be part of one of South Africa’s biggest Instameets on 18 August 2018, in celebration of World Photography Day. The Instameet was organised by Canon and Explore ZA, one of the country’s largest photography meet-up groups. The largest Instameet in South Africa prior to the event with Canon was organised by Explore ZA and attracted 327 instameeters.
The SAA Aviation Museum in Germiston, Gauteng provided the backdrop of the Instameet on World Photography Day. Filled with history and nostalgia, the museum was an inspiring place for the Instameeters to get snapping. Instameeters were given five photography tasks to complete on the day and there were fantastic prizes to be won from Canon South Africa for photographers and Instameeters sharing their pictures on Canon South Africa’s social media sites using #explorewithcanon.
Entrance to the Museum was free for those participating in the Instameet and the first 100 people to arrive were treated to a coffee courtesy of Cafe2Go.
“The Instameet with Explore ZA to mark World Photography Day was a tremendous success. It was super to see so many likeminded people come together for the love of photography.,” says Michelle Janse van Vuuren, Marketing Director at Canon South Africa.
