We’re looking for the best Instagrammers in Canada to take over our account in July and showcase The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth! As part of the contest, 10 talented photographers will be chosen to run the @CalgaryStampede Instagram account for a day each during Stampede 2014.  This could be you!

Of course, to best capture the thrill of the Stampede, the chosen Instagrammers will need access to all of the excitement.  That’s why each winner will receive:

  • two (2) Nashville North Passes

As an added bonus, if one of your pictures is judged the best overall during Stampede 2014, you’ll win an iPhone 5S - 16GB. This might just be the best gig in Canada! We can’t wait to see your entries.
